Re: Cancellation of Subscription and Future Renewals and Demand for Reimbursement
From: Thomas J. Breidenstein, D.O.
Date: 11 July 2001
This letter is to inform you that I am canceling my subscription to People Magazine because of your endorsement in advertising the RU-486 pill. I request a refund of the pro-rated balance of my subscription. I am a physician and have an established psychiatric practice. I will not renew my subscription and will inform the patients who regularly request People of why I’ve made this choice. The National Abortion Federation advertises their choice to murder. I also have a freedom. My choice is to cancel People for endorsing the NAF and it’s advertising. I will no longer endorse you.
If you choose to run advertisements by the National Abortion Federation of the RU-486 pill, I will choose to write the companies which advertise in your magazine and inform them that I will cease using any of their products as long as they are in allegiance with you.
