You're probably aware that TIME magazine annually asks its readers to determine the most influential leaders, artists, innovators, icons and heroes in the world. But you might not know that pro-lifers like Jill Stanek and LifeNews are determined to vote Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards down and Archbishop of New York Timothy Dolan up.
According to LifeNews, their social media campaign has been a success so far. "Before the campaign, which LifeNews started on Twitter and Facebook, a majority of voters responded to Planned Parenthood's call to vote for Richards to make the Top 100," the site bragged. They've allegedly succeeded before, too: "Last year, Richards clocked in at the 69th most influential spot. She had been at a higher position, but a small campaign on Twitter led by some pro-life advocates like Bryan Kemper of Stand True helped lower her ranking as pro-life people were persuaded to visit the Time web site to declare the abortion mogul not influential." WELL GOOD FOR YOU. Spamming TIME magazine is for sure the best way to use your time and resources, because if you're not on their list, your work means nothing
But all sarcasm aside, Richards currently clocks in at 39.64% "Definitely" and 60.46% "No Way," while Dolan, "the man most likely to give Barack Obama fits on the way to Election Day," has 66.62% of the "Definitely" vote and 33.38% "No Way." And — well — that's annoying.
