A West Coast sports franchise may soon learn the error of their ways.
The Seattle Storm, the Women’s NBA team, is in lockstep with the nation's biggest abortion provider. The women's basketball team is setting aside $5 from each ticket sold for tonight's game to donate to Planned Parenthood.
“The timing of this partnership with the Seattle Storm makes sense for Planned Parenthood,” Mark Harrington, national director of Created Equal, says. “They see the access to taxpayer money may be coming to an end soon, so they're trying to open up and find new streams of funding and corporate partnerships if they lose federal funding for their organization.”
While it makes sense for the abortion corporation, Harrington believes it to be a risky strategy for the Seattle Storm. He is reminded of negative fan reaction when the NCAA and the NBA entered the transgendered bathroom controversy.
“We want to get ahead of this,” Harrington says. "We want to cut it off at the pass and let teams like the Seattle Storm know that if they're going to fund Planned Parenthood there's going to be a price for them to do that.”
The first price, according to Harrington, will be damage to their reputation, and the second will be fewer fans.
Created Equal, Protest Planned Parenthood, Pro-Life Action League, the Anti-Choice Project, and local pro-life groups will be demonstrating at the Key Arena in Seattle letting fans know that part of their ticket costs will go to fund the abortion giant.
