After generating a firestorm of complaints in the “Choose Your Charity” contest, Lilith Tour organizers have opened up the process suggestions by fans, and have released a list of criteria for suggested charities. The criteria, however, don’t really make things clearer….
The city of Austin, Texas is considering passing an ordinance to require so-called crisis pregnancy centers to post a notice that they do not provide birth control, abortion services or referrals to abortion providers.
Without explaination, Lilith Tour dropped the crisis pregnancy centers and NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina from their “Choose Your Charity Contest.”
Jill Stanek and Lila Rose urge their supporters to vote for crisis pregnancy centers in Lilith Tour’s “Choose Your Charity” Campaign. Lilith cofounder hints that changes may be coming to contest.
Announcements by the Lilith Tour Monday suggested that $1 from every ticket will be donated to local charities in each of the 36 cities the festival visits. Will crisis pregnancy centers and anti-choice organizations be among them?
