With promises of protests by anti-abortion activists, the co-creator of "The Daily Show" will host a comedy fund-raiser Saturday night for Planned Parenthood in Pontiac.
Lizz Winstead's first stop on her tour comes as Planned Parenthood Mid and South Michigan is at a standstill in its efforts to open a clinic in Auburn Hills because of litigation.
"Every woman I know has used Planned Parenthood. I am no exception," Winstead told the Free Press.
But several groups don't want her or Planned Parenthood there.
"We are picketing the Planned Parenthood fund-raiser to send a public message that this group kills innocent human life, and its clinic, indeed its whole anti-life agenda, is not wanted," said Monica Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society.
