The Seattle professional women’s basketball team – known as the “Storm” – announced that they will donate five dollars from each ticket sold for their upcoming game against the Chicago Sky. The recipient? Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest & Hawaiian Islands.
That is the regional entity overseeing Planned Parenthood’s three Idaho abortion clinics.
The team management announced that they will hold a “Stand With Planned Parenthood” rally at the game as well, scheduled for July 18th.
National Planned Parenthood is delighted, according to a report in the New York Times. Dawn Laguens, VP of Planned Parenthood Federation of America is quoted as saying, “This marks the first partnership we’ve ever had with a sports franchise. This event and their support will help raise awareness among their fans and sports fans more broadly.”
Apparently the owners of the team have deceived themselves into believing that they are making a vital social contribution to “improving health care”. But, of course, all they are doing is dipping their hands in the bowl of innocent blood.
Hopefully the Seattle fan base, small as it might be, rallies to boycott the sordid mixing of sports and baby slaughter.
