    Science fiction writer John Scalzi
    has made an arrangement with his publisher that any ebooks sold in the text week will have the proceeds go to Planned Parenthood.
    Scalzi's blog

    So, between today and February 8, 2012, every time you buy a Subterranean Press eBook written by me here in the United States, the proceeds are going to Planned Parenthood. I will direct that the donation go specifically toward their breast cancer screening and educational activities, to help replace the funding lost from the Susan G. Komen Foundation. What ebooks does this cover? Here’s a list on Kindle http://www.amazon.com/.... ; here’s another on the Nook http://www.barnesandnoble.com/.... eBooks sold in other formats for other readers here in the US will be covered, too.

    Check him out. Author of Old Man's War and other books. Good SF writer and good man.

    You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia".

    When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin

      He's a great writer, drop dead funny.

      If you haven't discovered his books, now's the time to do so and double down: You help yourself by finding a new, entertaining writer and you help PP with donations.

      No one pays attention when you show up at a demonstration with a latte in one hand. When you show up with a molotov cocktail, then they pay attention.
