==Clergy for Responsible Choices==
 +
Circa May 1999, PPNT sponsored a meeting with the goal of enlisting ''"local religious authorities in presenting open-minded and deep-seated data about birth control, abortion and other subjects related to human sexuality."'' The speaker at the event was [[James L. Demus III]], pastor of the Park Manor Christian Church in [[Chicago]].
 +
 
 +
At this meeting, [[Michael Comini]], Executive Director of [[Planned Parenthood]]'s Tarrant County Office stated that they were establishing a group called "Clergy for Responsible Choices", a forum for faith leaders to discuss birth control and other subjects related to human sexuality.
 +
 
 +
Demus said pastors, priests and rabbis who present artificial contraception and abortion as choices for individuals will face much opposition from anti-abortion conservative Christian leaders, "This is dangerous work," he said, referring to the violence that has sometimes erupted at abortion clinics. "But it's worth it."<ref>[http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1876&dat=19990515&id=_dMoAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ws8EAAAAIBAJ&pg=6398,6156992 ''Minister Challenges Taboo Approach to Church, Sexuality'', Spartanburg Herald-Journal, May 15, 1999] (accessed on Sep. 14, 2012)</ref>

Clergy for Responsible Choices

Circa May 1999, PPNT sponsored a meeting with the goal of enlisting "local religious authorities in presenting open-minded and deep-seated data about birth control, abortion and other subjects related to human sexuality." The speaker at the event was James L. Demus III, pastor of the Park Manor Christian Church in Chicago.

At this meeting, Michael Comini, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood's Tarrant County Office stated that they were establishing a group called "Clergy for Responsible Choices", a forum for faith leaders to discuss birth control and other subjects related to human sexuality.

Demus said pastors, priests and rabbis who present artificial contraception and abortion as choices for individuals will face much opposition from anti-abortion conservative Christian leaders, "This is dangerous work," he said, referring to the violence that has sometimes erupted at abortion clinics. "But it's worth it."[39]

There is very little information available on this group, which appears to now be defunct. The following were possibly members of the group:

The concert was held at the downtown music venue The Palladium, in an upstairs performance hall that drew a crowd of more than 150 people—many of whom had not been known as supporters of Planned Parenthood. The occasion brought in local bands Happy Bullets, Young and Brave, Giggle Party and Girl in a Coma.[37]
