Focus On The Aftermath

by Dick Mac

I received notice from 18 people who either read this blog, or who joined the Focus On The Super Bowl group at Facebook, confirming that they made donations to Planned Parenthood in light of the Focus on the Family advertisement during the game.

Thank you!

If you made a donation in this same vein, whether or not you did it in honor of the Tebow family, please let me know and I will increase the count total.

I didn't watch the game, but I had purchased 'squares' in an office pool and the money I won will be sent to Planned Parenthood this week.

Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints and their fans (in spite of their hideous owner, who tried to abandon the city in the aftermath of Katrina). I wish I was in New Orleans celebrating with them. I am sure the party will go for a few days.

I send my regrets to friends and readers who are Colts fans. You still have one of the greatest quarterbacks to have ever played the game; and my bet is that you will be back to the Super Bowl in the not-too-distant future.

If you watched the game, thereby giving tacit endorsement to the NFL's and CBS's endorsement of the right-wing, anti-choice, anti-gay, anti-liberty company Focus on the Family, and you haven't yet made a donation to Planned Parenthood, it's not too late.

Please consider the following options:

This link brings you to the Planned Parenthood page for giving "In Honor," and I recommend you give in honor of "Tim Tebow, c/o Focus On The family, Colorado Springs, CO, 80995" and please note that there is no street address. See this example:

This link brings you to the standard Planned Parenthood giving page. Use this link if you want to make a generic donation with no mention of an honoree.

This link brings you to the "Monthly Giving" form. Use this link if you can afford to become a regular contributor.

I am proud to have made efforts to keep this issue as an open dialog, and I am prouder still of my readers, friends and the strangers who gave of themselves by boycotting and/or donating to Planned Parenthood.

I will keep the Facebook group open. Please use the link below to join, if you haven't already. And I will continue to blog here about choice, equality, civil rights, and liberty.

The battle continues. Right-wing hate groups like Focus on the Family will continue to spend millions of dollars to deny taxpayers their liberty. Don't give up the fight.

If you are on Facebook, please join the group:

I don't do Facebook, but you can add me to the count for donations made.
