Another protest letter. This time to a theatre who is donating part of the proceeds to an abortion clinic. Laughably, they say they take no position on the abortion debate.
"I am very disappointed to see that your theatre has positioned itself smack dab in the middle of the abortion debate by financially supporting abortion via some of the proceeds of the upcoming Vagina Monologues. As a feminist, actress and woman who has been deeply wounded physically and emotionally in a second-trimester abortion, I would have preferred to see financial support go to groups who only help women and children as opposed to groups that perpetuate violence, deception and oppression against women and children.
Abortion is a sign that society has failed women, abandoned them to violence, caused them to devalue their own beautiful, unique, life-giving function, and perpetuates the myth that a woman is not strong enough to raise a child without a man.
Women deserve better than the ticket you're selling."
So, Seacoast Repertory Theatre, put THAT in your vagina and smoke it!
(P.S. Does it surprise any of you Cell readers to know I sometimes dabble in local theatre? Comedy and tragedy; the story of my life!)
