Radio Jock Holds Abortion 'Contest'
By Matt Abbott
From Anne Newman of Operation Outcry:
Silent No More (www.operationoutcry.org):
"Earlier this week [of May 15, 2005], shock jock Elliot Segal of Washington, DC's radio station DC101 decided it would be hilarious to hold a contest with a prize for the listener who had the most abortions. While this contest was disgusting by its very nature, the offense was compounded because he held the competition on public airwaves during early morning hours, when people are driving to work and bringing their children to school. The 'contest' featured at least one potential statutory rape, two medical assaults and a number of callers proud of the children they had aborted.
"One caller, identified as K-Dog, proudly asserted that he was responsible for 16 abortions between two different women. K-Dog's second wife called in to proudly verify the 5 abortions she had with him. Graphic descriptions and crude jokes were included. Such depravity has no place on public airwaves.
"DC101's parent company, Clear Channel Communications, won applause last year when it dropped Howard Stern because he was deemed too offensive and controversial. It appears this brief dance with decency was merely a publicity stunt, as Stern alleged at the time.
"Please contact Clear Channel and ask them to send a message by firing this schlock jock."
