Judy Blume Backlash - Cecile'd Like to Cash in on It

My 'Friend' Cecile Richards of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund is upset and writes today:

Friend —

Yesterday, Judy Blume — a beloved writer and icon to generations of women — graciously wrote a letter about Mother's Day for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Now, anti-choice extremists are inundating her with hate mail and phone calls. We rarely respond to these outrageous attacks, but when it comes to Judy Blume ... well, I can't stand by and do nothing. I just can't.

Please, let her know how much we appreciate her courage!

Say thanks and send her a note of support. Click here.

Spread the word. Please send an e-mail to friends, and post this message on your social network, blog, and twitter.

Nothing — NOTHING — would make Judy happier than to know that the backlash has resulted in more support for Planned Parenthood and the women they serve.

Thank you, thank you —
