American Idol - "Idol Gives Back" and abortion

“Idol Gives Back,’ on the surface, seems to be motivated by good intentions,” said Erik Whittington, director for American Life League’s youth program. “But, the reality is that American Idol is funding non-profits, such as Save the Children and The Children’s Defense Fund, that promote immorality and abortion on demand.”

In 2001, Save the Children worked with pro-abortion organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the Population Action Council, and the Audubon Society on its five-year “Planet Campaign.” Save the Children has stated that “family planning” is a critical component of its work.
