Planned Parenthood's national gathering starts today

See Planned Parenthood Urges Women to 'tell your story' in the Portland Oregonian.

Gloria Feldt is the president of Planned Parenthood. She announced that a new public relations theme for Planned Parenthood, and also the theme for this year's conference, is "Tell Your Story, Change the World."

According to the article in the Oregonian, "'Telling stories empowers us,' she said. 'The antichoice folks have never hesitated to tell their stories, and they try to drown us out. We tend to be very tolerant people, and we have a tendency to retreat into logic -- that doesn't work.'"

"The antichoice folks have never hesitated to tell their stories"?

She doesn't say exactly what kind of stories she means. However, I'm guessing that she means the very recent movement for women who regret their abortions to speak out. The first-ever "Silent No More" event was just this last January 2003. It seems to have gotten under the skin of Planned Parenthood.

Bear in mind, though, that contrary to Feldt's claim, the great majority of women who have abortions and who regret it rarely if ever tell anyone about their experience.
