"Sex and the City" Charity Auction Criticized for Abortion Donation
New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- The racy HBO series "Sex and the City" is as much about fashion as it is women who just can't seem to make a connection with the right guy. A charity auction consisting of clothing worn by the stars on the set might seem like a good idea. However, the popular series and cable network are drawing criticism because some of the proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business. That's because Kristen Davis, who plays the mild-mannered Charlotte, has designated Planned Parenthood as her charity recipient. Marla Weinstein, Davis' publicist, told LifeNews.com that Davis "feels that women should retain the right to choose what happens to their bodies themselves." But pro-life advocates say the donation, made by a show that prides itself on empowering women, sends the wrong message to young women -- that abortion is better for women than having the baby. HBO plans to match the auction totals, meaning its corporate dollars will find their way into Planned Parenthood's bank account. Jeff Tusson, Director of Corporate Affairs for HBO, declined to comment on the Planned Parenthood donations, but told LifeNews.com, "We welcome the women to put up the charity they want to support."
