Seems ironic that the 40 Days of Prayer campaign that you Blog Jammed about ("Local Planned Parent Labeled ‘The Worst,'" April 4) accused Planned Parenthood of being "driven" by money. PPs response to the campaign? A fundraiser.

Planned Parenthood provides a lot of services to people, and Dave Berry is surprised that it costs money. No "irony" there, but I wonder how he feeds himself.

No, not surprised. And truly I do appreciate much of what PP offers member of the community, and their intention and ability to do so at sliding fee rates - which of course I acknowledge costs money. Most of their funding comes from insurance providers and grants. I just thought it ironic that they used the prayer protest to raise funds. The campaigners held signs and prayed to the God of their understanding - Planned Parenthood asked their supporters to put their money where there mouth is - BECAUSE of the sign holders. Still, I do also acknowledge that some of those funds will go to truly helpful services - and some will go to harm the smallest and weakest among us.

That is why I did not pledge to fund Planned Parenthood, I chose to hold a sign and pray.
