This Concerned Women for America article caught my eye.

V. Gene Robinson, the nation’s first openly homosexual Episcopal bishop, will address an “interfaith” prayer breakfast sponsored by Planned Parenthood (PP), the nation’s largest provider and promoter of abortions.

In an interview with Planned Parenthood’s Choice! magazine, Robinson declared himself “pro-choice” and described pro-life Episcopalians as being “off the deep end.” The prayer breakfast, part of PP’s 2005 annual conference, is slated for 7:30 a.m. on Friday, April 15, at the Washington (D.C.) Hilton.

The homosexual activist movement has long been an integral part of America’s pro-abortion movement, and vice-versa. The pro-abortion National Organization for Women (NOW) campaigns for all aspects of the homosexual agenda, including same-sex “marriage” and hate crime laws, and assails the Boy Scouts for barring homosexuals as scoutmasters.

Likewise, major homosexual activist groups are part of liberal coalitions that work against pro-life judicial nominees, for socialized medicine, and for legislation restricting the rights of pro-life demonstrators, such as the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE), which treats pro-life protesters as criminals.

More evidence of the ties between the radical homosexual movement and pro-abortion forces came on April 7, when Kate Michelman, former president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, presented the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s (NGLTF) “Annual Leadership Award” to former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean. Mr. Dean, who was defeated by John Kerry for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004, was honored for his “lifetime achievement and commitment to progressive causes,” including service to “the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community.” Dean presided over Vermont’s adoption of homosexual civil unions that are identical to marriage in all but name.
