Comedians Sarah Silverman and Zach Galifianakis, among others, will perform at an abortion fundraiser called "A Night of a Thousand Vaginas." Pro-life women activists claim that the event degrades women, rather than empowering their "reproductive rights."
"They're focusing on the bits and parts of the woman, and chosen to devalue the great worth of a woman in her entirety," Melissa Conway, director of external relations at Texas Right to Life, told The Christian Post in an interview on Tuesday. "It's unfortunate that the funds are being used in a threat to baby girls' lives as well," Conway added. "They glorify the right to choose the ending of one life for the benefit of the other."
The comedic fundraiser will take place in Los Angeles on Thursday, but the money will fund various abortion groups in Texas. The new reproductive rights group "A Is For" is hosting the event. On its website, the organization describes itself as an "ally and advocate for organizations working to protect reproductive rights." Its symbol, a scarlet letter "A," hearkens back to Hester Prynne, the "heroine" of Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel "The Scarlet Letter." more >>
Alan Robertson, the self-described "beardless brother" of the Robertson family, discussed their affinity for facial hair and joked that his brothers could be mistaken for Al Qaeda terrorists during a speech at the American Farm Bureau Federation's 95th annual convention in San Antonio on Monday.
Robertson, who stepped out from behind the scenes to join A&E's hit reality television show "Duck Dynasty" as a cast member during its fourth season, said that despite his attempts to blend in, his brothers still tease him about not fitting in.
"My brothers give me a hard time when I grow a beard and say I look like Yasser Arafat," Robertson told the audience full of farmers. more >>
An Oklahoma family's decision to give away a customized, handmade pew to Duck Dynasty's Robertson family ultimately landed them a spot on ABC's "Good Morning America" last month.
Rex Blisard, the founder and owner of Born Again Pews and a devoted fan of the A&E reality television show, said that his wife suggested that the family donate a bench to the Robertson's after she realized that Blisard would be traveling to Lousiana for business later in the year.
