I Stopped In Planned Parenthood To Deliver $300 Collected At The American Atheist ConvenionPosted by Phil Ferguson on March 28th, 2012 – 8 Comments – Posted in Women's Rights
I drove over to Planned Parenthood to deliver the money collected at the American Atheist Convention – almost $300. I stepped up to the window and placed the giant roll of money on the counter. I told them that I collected it at a convention and wanted to know if I could get a picture for my blog.
The lady at the counter called for her boss and said something like, “he’s here!” I did not tell anyone I was on my way there so I was quite shocked by the sudden rush of activity behind the bullet proof glass. They were very happy to see me and buzzed me through the thick security door. I was stunned and a little confused but I went in to deliver the donation. It appears that my previous donations have caused quite a stir. I have been bugging the protestors outside and then going in to give $10 per protestor. I tell the protestors that I am giving money because they are there.
Well, it appears that this has not only upset the fundies outside more than I could have ever imagined but the local staff loves it. They kept thanking me over and over and one lady almost started crying. They told their district manager what I was doing and some corporate types asked them to get my info if I come in again. They want to talk to me and may try to do it in other locations. WOW! Was I shocked. I will let you know if we ever have a meeting.
I gave them my contact info and took this picture. Note the giant roll of money! Thanks to all of the donors from the convention!
