Not 5 seconds after I posted about how ill-advised and stoopid I thought NARAL’s “Screw Abstinence” fund raiser idea is, they obliviously sent this e-mail to Stranger writer Annie Wagner.

Delivered-To: From: “Sonja Eberle” To: Subject: local affiliate right in town!

Hi Annie,

Thanks for your great piece on the upcoming Supreme Court battle in this weeks Stranger.
I just wanted to let you know that NARAL Pro-Choice Washington is the state affiliate of NARAL Pro-Choice America ( and mobilizes Washingtonians right out of Seattle to uphold a woman’s right to choose.

Stand up for a pro-choice future…your voice counts!

Sonja, I think Annie’s heard about NARAL Pro-Choice Washington. Given that you’re a local communications staffer for NARAL, you might want to check out what Annie wrote about NARAL Pro-Choice Washington last February after she interviewed your executive director re: Chocolate for Choice. That’s right, “Chocolate for Choice.”
Hmmm…a chocolate-themed fund raiser followed with a sex-themed fund raiser. Am I detecting a theme? I think you guys should have a little more respect for your constituency.
