*FRONT ROYAL, VA (MetroCatholic) – Once again, “American Idol” is aligning itself with pro-abortion groups. Among the groups benefiting this year’s “Idol Gives Back” fund- raising campaign are Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation. “Idol Gives Back,” which airs tonight, will feature several celebrities who will urge Americans to make a donation.
Save the Children has a working relationship with what it calls “prominent international organizations.” Several of these groups are actively pro-abortion, including Better World Fund, Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Population Action International, and the U.S. Committee for UNICEF.
In 2001, Save the Children worked with Planned Parenthood, the Population Action Council, and the pro- abortion Audubon Society on its five-year “Planet Campaign.” **Funded by the rabidly pro-abortion/ population control David and Lucile Packard and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations, *the purpose of the campaign was to “raise awareness of the connections between international family planning and the health of children, women and the environment.” The Planet Campaign used television and print advertising, community outreach, special events, and other activities to spread its message. Save the Children said the campaign’s website provided “an international forum for discussion of, and action on, women’s reproductive health—including family planning—in various countries and diverse cultures around the world.”
I suppose that it should be no surprise that a show called “American Idol” will financially support abortion, along with major donations from the richest man on earth, Bill Gates.
