Audrey Geisel: The Real Grinch Who Supports Abortion
Widow of Dr. Seuss Is Major Planned Parenthood Supporter
According to the biography of Ted Geisel, the now deceased author of the successful Dr. Seuss books and entertainment paraphernalia, Geisel made this statement shortly before his death: "The best slogan I can think to leave with the U.S.A. would be, 'We can...and we've got to...do better than this.' " (Morgan, p. 287) (www.seussville.com). Apparently his extremely wealthy widow, Audrey Geisel, didn't get the message. In the annals of abortion extremism, two San Diego women are in the highest echelons of supporting the abortion industry: Jinx Ecke of the Ecke Ranch Flower industry and Audrey Geisel, controller of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
Audrey Geisel's fanatical obsession with supporting the abortion industry seems to know no bounds. Like her counterpart Jinx Ecke, Geisel's appalling support for abortion is masked by her funding of child-friendly causes that makes her look like a great female shepherd of society's littlest of lambs. In reality, Audrey Geisel's tremendous support for the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood demonstrates that she is more of a wolf in sheep's clothing than a shepherd of the lambs.
-The Audrey Geisel Abortion Record-
According to a May 2003 report in San Diego NewsNotes, Audrey Geisel was one of the chairpersons of the annual San Diego/Riverside Counties Planned Parenthood Dinner held at the Sheraton Hotel on Harbor Island (www.sdnewsnotes.com/ed/notes/0503note.htm).
In an explosive revelation entitled Rogues' Gallery, San Diego NewsNotes reported in its May 1996 edition that Audrey Geisel served on the honorary committee of the same Planned Parenthood organization for its April 23, 1996 annual abortion dinner fundraiser (www.sdnewsnotes.com/ed/notes/0596note.htm). Geisel's involvement that year with San Diego's top abortion mill organization helped to honor Chula Vista abortionist Fred Schnepper who was given the Margaret Sanger Award. Margaret Sanger, an avowed racist who idolized Adolph Hitler, was the original founder of Planned Parenthood.
The San Diego Foundation, which is associated with numerous radical pro-homosexual and pro-abortion causes, described Audrey Geisel this way in its 2001 annual report:
"Audrey Geisel brings a special passion to her work, preserving and expanding
the work of Ted "Dr. Seuss" Geisel. Her story is constantly changing as the
energy of her philanthropy touches almost every corner of the community. The
beneficiaries of Audrey Geisel's kindness and generosity are many. Among them:
the Boys and Girls Clubs, the Birch Aquariam, Human Rights Watch,
Planned Parenthood, the San Diego Center for Children, San Diego Hospice
and Mama's Kitchen."
In its 2002 annual report, the San Diego Foundation includes participation from Geisel, the San Diego Gay and Lesbian Center and this disturbing statement from Elizabeth Ecke of the radical abortion-supporting and poinsettia-farming Ecke Family:
Elisabeth Ecke - Isabella Fund 1999
This Advised Non-Endowment Fund supports
general charitable purposes, excluding religious causes.
Audrey Geisel is not just supportive of abortion causes. She embraces the radical homosexual agenda as well. In their 2005 year-end list of Donors and Supporters, the Gay and Lesbian Center of San Diego (www.thecentersd.org) listed the Dr. Seuss Foundation among its cheering squad of supporters. As strong of a warrior as Geisel is for aborting babies, she is just as strong in opposing pro-life groups. Published comments on the Independent Televison Service in late 2005, reveal just how nasty Audrey Geisel has been towards the pro-life movement:
AUDREY GEISEL, WIDOW OF DR. SEUSS (Theodor Seuss Geisel), became "very disturbed" when she found out a pro-life group in Ottawa, Canada used a line from her husband's book Horton Hears a Who on a poster. The line, "A person is a person no matter how small," accompanied a picture of an eight-week-old fetus. "We don't want to take a position one way or the other," said Geisel's San Francisco lawyer, Cathy Bencieengo. "But this is not an area in which Dr. Seuss participates.".National Post, January 29, 2001 Ontario: Use of Seuss protested OTTAWA - The lawyer representing the widow of Theodor Seuss Geisel, known around the globe as children's writer Dr. Seuss, is protesting the reprinting of a quote from the author's work, Horton Hears a Who!, on an anti-abortion poster being distributed in Ottawa Roman Catholic churches. Cathy Bencieengo said she will ask the local anti-abortion group Action Life Ottawa to remove the line "A person's a person, no matter how small" and Dr. Seuss's name from a color poster showing an embryo.
Christians, Christmas and The Grinch
Photos From "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" At San Diego's Old Globe Theater
Each year, the Old Globe Theater in San Diego produces its extravagant production of Dr. Seuss' "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" (www.oldglobe.org/productions/DrSeussHowtheGrinchS435.html). And each year, hundreds of Bible-believing Christians will line up and pluck down the $49 for adult tickets and $25 for children's tickets. In times past, one has even seen Audrey Geisel sitting in the audience. One must also wonder, if Geisel continues to have her way, whether or not Planned Parenthood will leave any future child actors to perform in her plays. Planned Parenthood could invaribly put Geisel's Grinch play out of business, having killed off all future child actors. Does Audrey Geisel actually envision herself as the real Grinch when she is watching the children cooing over the fictitious Grinch as he steals the Christmas gifts from Whosville, knowing that her rabid support for the abortionists of Planned Parenthood are killing precious children?
As Christians throughout America walk their children into churches this Christmas, holding onto a little baby in one hand, and a Bible in the other, isn't it time to consider where they are spending their money and what they are really financing. It is the greatest of hypocrisies to go to church while giving money to a woman who supports the killing of millions of babies via the Planned Parenthood abortion rampage.
