Some upset that Planned Parenthood to benefit from Sidewinders game

.-

A fundraising event tomorrow for Planned Parenthood has got a Christian radio show host riled up.

Every year, the Pima County Board of Supervisors chooses four local non-profit groups to receive the ticket proceeds from select Sidewinders games. The group that will benefit from tomorrow’s game is Planned Parenthood.

Christian radio-show host for KVOI-690 AM Steve Aiken says the county’s selection of Planned Parenthood – a group that supports abortion – is ridiculous. Aiken says he does not understand why such a controversial organization would be chosen – for the second year in a row – “when there are so many others that are much more deserving, like food shelters, Boy Scouts, or Girl Scouts.”

None of the Pima County supervisors who were contacted granted a request for an interview. The Sidewinders said they are not involved in the selection process.

The CEO of Southern Arizona's Planned Parenthood, Patti Caldwell, says they received about $3,000 from the game last year.
