All right, all you American Idol fans, time to boycott the show.


'Idol Gives Back' -- To Pro-Abortion Groups

By Kathleen Gilbert

FRONT ROYAL, Virginia, April 21, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Once again, "American Idol" is aligning itself with pro-abortion groups: among the groups benefiting this year's "Idol Gives Back" fund-raising campaign are Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation, both of which have ties to top abortion organizations, reports Life Decisions International (LDI).

Save the Children has a working relationship with what it calls "prominent international organizations." Several of these groups are actively pro-abortion, including Better World Fund, Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Population Action International, and the U.S. Committee for UNICEF. (A comprehensive list of UNICEF's anti-life history is available on LifeSiteNews.com here.)

In 2001, Save the Children worked with Planned Parenthood, the Population Action Council, and the pro-abortion Audubon Society on its five-year "Planet Campaign." Funded by the strongly pro-abortion/population control David and Lucile Packard and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations, the purpose of the campaign was to "raise awareness of the connections between international family planning and the health of children, women and the environment." Save the Children said the campaign's website provided "an international forum for discussion of, and action on, women's reproductive health - including family planning - in various countries and diverse cultures around the world."

Save the Children has stated that "family planning" has been a "critical component" of its work for nearly 20 years. The group quoted a UNICEF document which stated that "family planning could bring more benefits to more people at less cost than any other single technology now available to the human race." Save the Children noted that the report identified "access to family planning" as a "key factor contributing to maternal and child survival and well-being."

Simon Cowell was listed as acting Secretary General of the International Save the Children Alliance until at least March 2008. It's unconfirmed whether this is the same Simon Cowell of "American Idol" fame.

Several divisions of the United Nations have donated funds to Planned Parenthood and the body has wholeheartedly embraced its abortion and population control agenda, most notably through the United Nations Population Fund. (See original coverage here.)

In addition, "American Idol" recently supported a fund-raising campaign by Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles, according to LDI.

"Idol Gives Back," which airs Wednesday night, will feature several celebrities who will urge Americans to make a donation.

"It is laudable that the people involved with 'American Idol' want to help the poor," said LDI President Douglas R. Scott, Jr. "But it is tragic that they would choose to do so through groups like the Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation. These groups have far too much deadly baggage."

"If you believe the plight of preborn children is as important as the plight of the poor, do not participate in 'Idol Gives Back,'" Scott urged. "We are caring people who want to do our part to help those less fortunate, but we will do so through organizations that do not view the killing of human beings as a 'solution' to poverty and other adult-created problems."
