I gave $100 to Planned Parenthood today.
Even though in general when I give to reproductive-health organizations I give to smaller, local ones that have neither the visibility, the clout, or the fundraising capabilities Planned Parenthood does.
But today, these days, now, that visibility, clout, and capability is precisely what's painted the right wing target "surveyor's symbol" on Planned Parenthood's back.
To paraphrase the silly Grateful Dead bumper sticker from the 1970s, Planned Parenthood may not always be the best at what they do, but in a lot of places they're the only ones doing it.
If I had $10,000 I'd have given them that instead.
If you've got something to give this year might be a good time to do that.
