Atheists of Utah Will Donate Money to Planned Parenthood on Behalf of Anti-Abortion Governor

The Salt Lake City Weekly newspaper has a nice interview with Felicia Entwistle, president of Atheists of Utah.

Her group is hosting a big fundraiser tonight and it includes a silent auction with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. Even better? The money will be donated in the name of Governor Gary Herbert:

Gary Herbert has consistently used his religion and his personal beliefs on morality to block people’s rights. He’s trying to take away women’s access to health care — and everyone’s access to sexual health care — because Planned Parenthood serves everyone. It’s very tongue-in-cheek. The genesis of the idea was that he gets to keep making decisions like this for all Utahns; I think we could make a little decision in his honor.

It’s only fair!

Details for the gala are here. Even if you’re not in the area, you can still make a donation to the group. Remember: These are atheists in Utah. They need all the support they can get!
