Bravo, Joan! Planned Parenthood Porn Outsted

September 25, 2007 09:00 AM

In Lewiston Maine, JoAn Karkos sent shock waves through the country when she stood by her decision to permanently remove copies of the book "It's Perfectly Normal" from the library shelves.

She removed all the books from the library and insists that she will not return them. More power to her.

When we learned of this woman's heroic action we asked Jim Sedlak to tell us how others could do what JoAn did in order to expose the gross injustice Planned Parenthood does to children. Here is what he recommends:

  • Get your local library's complaint procedure.
  • Make up a simple petition "we the undersigned want "It's Perfectly Normal" removed from our library.
  • Circulate petition and get as many signatures as possible. Get to local churches, home schooling groups, and other conservative groups and have their membership sign. There is no age limit on the petition, but people should sign only one.
  • Have a person load names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses into a computer for future use.
  • While circulating petition, get the names and contact numbers of the people who make up the library board that will make the ultimate decision.
  • Have influential people in the community contact these board members asking them to get rid of the book.
  • Once you have enough signatures, file an official complaint with the library stating you are filing for yourself and xxxxx number of people who signed petition, and asking the book be removed from the library.
  • A hearing should be scheduled. Once the date has been set, send out an e-mail to everyone who signed the petition giving them the contact information for the library board members and asking them to contact the board and ask for the removal of the book.
  • Let the press know what is happening.
  • Go to the meeting with as many people as would like to come and demand the book be removed.
  • If the library board refuses to remove the book, you are not finished yet.
  • Get information on where the money to fund the library comes from. If it comes from government (city, county, etc) get to elected officials and ask them to withhold all future payments until library removes book.
  • Renew your signature gathering.
  • Continue to put pressure on funding.
  • Keep filing additional complaints, go to meetings and let your voice be heard until the book is gone.
