    Angry Susan G. Komen charity pulls grants

    Susan G. Komen's Act of Cowardice:

    "In a shocking move Tuesday afternoon, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the country's most famous breast cancer charity, pulled its grants for breast-cancer screenings from Planned Parenthood."

    http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor..._the_bus_.html

    This disgusts me. My sister is a breast cancer survivor and we participate every year in our local Susan G. Komen walk/run. I'm sorry to say I've made my last donation to Susan B. Komen and will divert that money over to Planned Parenthood unless/until they reverse their stance. This country is crawling with enough anti-women's health proponents. Susan G. Komen has just spit in the face of millions of their donors. Shame on them.

    Breast Cancer has touched my family and friends heavily. I am named after my mom's mom who I never got to meet because she died when I was 6 weeks old of BC. I have the gene. I have 2 close friends who are survivors. One of my youngest's BF's mom is suffering.
    I donate heavily and I will let them know why I no longer will.
    JMO.

    I screwed up my thread title. Does anyone know how to change Susan B to Susan G?

    Thanks for the article. That is really sad. The MAJORITY of Planned Parenthood's services are for contraception, screenings, etc. But some people I guess just choose to overlook that. There are plenty of other organizations I can donate my money to. Susan G Komen is now off my list, and I am going to tell my friends and family about this.

    Playing politics with the lives of women

    Their facebook page is getting slammed with negative comments and vows to suspend donations. And now the spin has begun..... I guess the good news is, Planned Parenthood is going to get a lot of donations they wouldn't otherwise have gotten.

    My aunt that I adored died at 44 with her second round of breast cancer. I've had a borderline phyllodes tumor removed from my breast. These funds are still available through Susan G. Komen, women in need can still get breast exams covered, just not at Planned Parenthood. I was glad to see this decision. Moo

    Huh? Women have 'choice' in this country and that is never going to change. JMO and all that jazz.

    Here we go:

    "The seven former employees of affiliates of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which is under congressional investigation for possible misuse of taxpayer funds, sent a letter to Chairman Fred Upton, a pro-life Michigan Republican, and Ranking Member Henry Waxman, a pro-abortion California Democrat"

    http://www.lifenews.com/2011/12/07/f...ssional-probe/


    The whistleblowers are former employers and pro abortion so this doesn't appear to be about 'womens rights'.

    How unfortunate that an organization that uses breast cancer victims to raise money has decided to penalize some of those victims for what may or may not be the financial misconduct by PP employees. Everybody loses.

    PP is not the only org that SGK supports. There are other options for getting the screening.

    I'd be concerned about donating to an org that may not be using the money for the screening? JMO

    PP does a lot of work with lower income folks, and women with no health insurance. I'm not sure how their BC screenings work but... Damn this feels like throwing a bunch of poor or uninsured folks under the bus, to me.

    How very, very, "pro-life" of the Komen charity.
