Komen pro-death* VP promised to defund Planned Parenthood

http://www.americablog.com/2012/01/komen-pro-life-vp-promised-to-defund.html

As I wrote earlier, the Race for the Cure has decided to stop funding breast exams at Planned Parenthood clinics after pressure from religious right anti-abortion activists and Republican House members. Is it a coincidence that the Race for the Cure new senior vice president is a Republican anti-abortion activist?

2010: Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Karen Handel runs for governor on a platform of defunding Planned Parenthood.

2011: Republican politico and anti-choice activist Handel is hired by Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an organization that runs the annual breast cancer fundraiser "Race for the Cure," and that gives hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood to conduct breast exams on women around the country

2012: Komen stops funding Planned Parenthood's breast exams after pressure from who? Republicans!

It makes one wonder whether Karen Handel had a hand in accomplishing, as the senior VP at Komen, what she couldn't accomplish as a Georgia Republican anti-abortion activist - defunding Planned Parenthood.

* yes I changed the title. so-called "pro-life" is really pro-death: THEY PREFER THAT WOMEN DIE. They care about the idea of 'an innocent baby' (even when it's a clump of 4 cells) but when it comes to the already born, living woman, they insist that a WOMAN MUST GIVE HER LIFE - even to bear A RAPIST'S BABY.

"Pro-life" is the biggest misnomer in the lexicon. They are really PRO DEATH. It's time we called them on it. And stop giving to parasitic, so-called "charities" like Komen - give to the organizations that actually care for the people who need it. Planned Parenthood if that's your thing, or even a local food bank - far better than supporting the right wing scum that run Komen.

1. This is

a really appalling act by Komen. "Race for the Cure" loses all meaning.

2. Yes, it is.

I tend to think they're unmasked themselves.

Maybe at one time it was a worthwhile organization. It certainly isn't now.

3. I've just voted to defund Komen

I posted an alternative in another thread. Alternatives are out there.

Woman hating pinheads don't get a dime from me. Ever.

repukes, since they are now in bed with them.

5. Thank you! We need to keep getting the word out though.

I hope the next 'Race for the Cure' is a very sparsely attended event. Then maybe they'll really get the message. Not that that f***wad Handel will care. If she cared about women's health she wouldn't be pro-death in the first place.
