Reactionary Radio?

Planned Parenthood of Western Washington has blown a gasket over the Second Look Project's radio ads that are running on AM 1090 Progressive Talk in Seattle.

Here's what Planned Parenthood emailed to their supporters yesterday.


This week, KPTK AM 1090 Progressive Talk started airing inflammatory and misleading ads about Roe v. Wade and a women's right to choose. These ads are paid for by Second Look, a campaign of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops that targets progressive, pro-choice communities such as Seattle, San Francisco, Boston and Washington, DC.

A number of you have called Planned Parenthood to report your surprise and outrage at this ad being run on AM 1090. As consumers, we can let them know we are offended by these distorted ads! TAKE ACTION NOW!

As Michelle at Life of the Party points out, Planned Parenthood isn't too fond of the 1st Amendment.

Listen to the ads and see what you think.

Your Rights

I say it's about time progressive radio started acting progressive instead of reactionary and conservative. Isn't it all about questioning authority for these people? Planned Parenthood claims to be the undisputed authority on everything related to sex.

Contact Bill Sigmar and Lisa Decker at AM 1090 and thank them for airing the voice of the revolution.
