Office Depot Apologizes for Refusing to Print Fliers Criticizing Planned Parenthood
Office Depot has apologized to an Illinois woman after the store refused to print her fliers, which criticized Planned Parenthood.
The store told Maria Goldstein that it couldn’t print copies of “A Prayer for Planned Parenthood” because the content was restricted by corporate policy. But Goldstein said that the store couldn’t tell her what policy her fliers were violating. Then, the corporate offices wouldn’t return her calls.
"We sincerely apologize to Ms. (Maria) Goldstein for her experience and our initial reaction was not at all related to her religious beliefs," Office Depot Chairman and CEO Roland Smith said in a statement, adding that she is welcome to return to the store to print her fliers.
The Associated Press reported:
The prayer was composed by the Rev. Frank Pavone, national director of the anti-abortion group Priest for Life. It calls on God to "Bring an end to the killing of children in the womb, and bring an end to the sale of their body parts. Bring conversion to all who do this, and enlightenment to all who advocate it."
The prayer also includes statistics about abortion in the U.S. and decries "the evil that has been exposed in Planned Parenthood and in the entire abortion industry."
Goldstein was on “Fox and Friends” this morning to discuss the ordeal. Watch her interview above.
