Scott Lynch - Planned Parenthood Benefit Auction

Scott Lynch (author of the sublime Gentlemen Bastard Sequence) is offering up special international editions of his books as a benefit auction for Planned Parenthood:
Planned Parenthood is under siege from maniacs in more than one state; hypocritical lunatics who don't seem to grasp that it offers a broad slate of essential health and life-saving services including STD testing/treatment, cancer screening and preventive treatment, and contraceptive services. Planned Parenthood is already prohibited from spending any of its federal funding directly on abortion services, but that's just not good enough for the lunatics, because it's not really about the "sanctity of life" for them (if it were, they'd show decidedly more interest in the health and safety of those precious little life forms once they leave the womb)-- it's about leveraging all the powers of the state they can possibly get their hands on to control women and intrude on the most private aspects of their lives.

Marvellous!  Check out the auctions here and here.
