"Do you support Planned Parenthood?"

Two women asked us this, poll or petition or whatever in hand, as we approached a coffee house last weekend. My response? "Uh... I don't even know how to answer that question.."

Not because I can't say whether I lean toward pro-choice or pro-life, or whether I'd prefer to see an organization like theirs actively linked with adoption agencies (hello???!!!), but simply because. It's too deep and ironic a question for me to answer. At least, not to a couple of people with a specific objective behind the question.
