Let's do lunch

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 13, 2003

Voices, the excellent magazine of Women for Faith & Family, carries a very interesting article by WFF member and pro-lifer Sherry Tyree, in which she reports on a lunch and lecture she "infiltrated" last May. The lecturer, one Barbara Zdravecky of Planned Parenthood, spoke on "President Bush's War On Women." Zdravecky, presuming all her listeners were of the same mind as she on The Issue, answered Tyree during the question period with unusual frankness -- and amusing results. An excerpt:

Ms. Z replied: "First, I'd like to congratulate you for your efforts in St. Louis where there is such confrontation". She went on at length crediting me with dealing with "confrontational" St. Louis pro-lifers.

She then let down her hair. Local Florida media is, as always, "sympathetic" to Planned Parenthood, Ms. Z said. They do have to ask questions of the opposition, of course, because they have to quote both sides "but they are good at asking questions that make the opposition look foolish".

Oops.
