Planned Parenthood rallies bullies against Wisconsin food pantry for refusal to partner

American Life League Associate group Pro-Life Wisconsin relays yet another story of a Planned Parenthood-driven bullying campaign against an organization that refused to partner with it. Here is the report:

Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has been collecting food items at its PP locations; the food donations are theoretically being given to nearby food pantries. Have an abortion, donate a can of soup. Sounds like a deal. One Green Bay food pantry, Paul’s Pantry, declined the Planned Parenthood donation because PPWI [commits] abortions. (And maybe they didn’t want IUD cookies or aborted fetus cookies? Just a thought.)

And because pro-aborts are always so shocked when a person exercises their free choice and disagrees with their worldview, name calling and Jesus comparisons ensued. The Daily Kos picked up the “news” and took it one step further, encouraging harassment and intimidation, and referring to the food pantry as a "POS" (a far cry from pro-lifers’ attempts to be courteous when boycotting, hmmm).

In response to a thank you e-mail from PLW, the executive director of Paul's Pantry said the following:

All I told the young lady from Planned Parenthood was that I couldn’t send a truck to pick up, and gave her a list of other food pantries that might want to pick up, I gave her no reason at all and she didn’t ask why. Soon after, I started receiving the hate e-mail and phone calls. I politely explained to callers that although we are non-denominational in regards to those we serve, we are a Catholic organization who shares a board of directors with our sister organization, St. Vincent de Paul. We adhere to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and to the Rule of St. Vincent de Paul. I also explained our Gift Acceptance Policy and how acceptance of the donation would compromise our core values and possibly damage the reputation of Paul’s Pantry.

Please pass the word; our volunteers and staff could use lots of prayers and messages of support.

If you would like to contact Paul's Pantry, or if you live in Green Bay and would like to support this organization, call (920) 433-0343; e-mail [email protected]; or write to Paul's Pantry, 1529 Leo Frigo Way, Green Bay, WI 54302-1163.
