Support Planned Parenthood!

RECEIVED Thu., Dec. 4, 2003

I am pleased to have read the Chronicle's piece "Women Dig In," featured in this week's paper [Dec. 5]. It is important for area residents to see what is happening in this situation. Rather than Chris Danze using his daytime to fulfill his obligation to those who hire him as their contractor, he instead is sending unsolicited e-mail, using intimidation outside women's health clinics throughout the city, and resorting to last-ditch efforts! I wonder how much he overcharged you for your last foundation so he could fund his activist work?
   One of the points that stood out to me was that the usual anti-Planned Parenthood protesters in the city are men ... not the women this clinic is designed for. We saw the same in the infamous photo of Bush signing the partial birth abortion blocker. All men, no women! Women must stand up and speak up for our rights!
   It is apparent that Planned Parenthood will build this new center in Austin, as there are plenty of contractors out there who would be pleased to have the work. In addition, the citizens of Austin need the different types of services the clinic will offer and will assure these needs be met despite Danze (sorry, but he doesn't deserve a "Mr." in my opinion)!
   I call for a boycott of Danze, and any of his associates. I will assist in any way I can to assure that the same tactics he is using against others be used against him.
   His voice is not louder than ours. Too bad we had to stare at his pathetic mug shot in your paper.
