Unfortunately, CREDO's behavior does more harm than good for PP. This is bullying and will not change Zuckerberg's mind. (Nor should it.) If anything it gives the perception to others that PP is an organization that operates by enlisting such groups as CREDO to bully people. Too bad.

Opinion, I understand where you're coming from, I'm not a fan of Christie for President or a fan of Zuckerberg for that matter. I just don't think CREDO engaged in anything effective...... If people are offended by Zuckerberg's support of Christie, stop using his source of income --- FACEBOOK. If as many people as you think are morally opposed to this they should not support facebook and it would have impact.

News Coverage -
I respectfully still disagree.....
Hmmm, only 10 people have blogged on this post. Don't think that's a whole lot of impact in our community - certainly not to Zuckerberg. I blogged because as I said earlier, I also am not a fan but.... what CREDO did is nothing but a fly to be swatted by Zuckerberg. And FACEBOOK users are too loyal to do anything about it. Would you give up your FACEBOOK page?
CREDO has not hurt the Zuckerberg support to the Governor at all. Zuckerberg is financially invested in NJ as evidenced by his 100 Million donation to the Newark school system. The Governor can count on more support despite CREDO.
With the exception of the 10 bloggers, nobody is even thinking about the event that happened. Ask most Americans what CREDO is - you'll get a blank face. Ask them what FAcebook is....

woosider: yes, PP DOES need help!
For almost 100 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to womenís health and well-being, based on respect for each individualís right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning.
750 health centers provide million of women and men needed services such as cancer screening and contraceptive advice -- many are too poor to get help elsewhere.
Politicians like Christie and Romney want to end PP. America wants otherwise. Just look what happens to those that fight against PP and the health services it provides: remember Koman? And how did it work out for Romney?
As 'opinion' said -- thanks for bringing PP to the front of people's minds!
