Pickets to pledges

Here's a clever idea, turning anti-abortion protesters against themselves.
Supporters of US Planned Parenthood clinics pledge to donate 25c - $1 for every protester who arrives to picket.  The more picketers, the more money the clinics receive.  A clinic in Waco, Texas has received $18,000 to date.
In very real terms, protestors are actively supporting the clinics by their very presence.  Knowingly, too: the clinic displays signs: "Even Our Protesters Support Planned Parenthood", which also indicate the latest financial total, so protesters know how much money they are making for the affiliate every time they show up.

An original idea... the old reverse half twist... it's almost the first known example of lovng one's enemy, but not quite. I'll keep looking. Thanks for your blog. I enjoy it often and have you blogrolled.
