Skip to comments.Breaking: Two dozen Senators call on Komen to reverse Planned Parenthood decision
Posted on 02/02/2012 11:28:30 AM PST by alancarp
The pressure on the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation to reverse its decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood for breast cancer screenings for poor people a decision which has caused an uproar among womens groups and on social media is about to get significantly more intense. Nearly two dozen Senators are set to enter the fray.
Im told that 22 Dem Senators have signed on to a toughly worded letter urging Komen to reverse its decision, which Komen has justified by citing a new rule prohibiting it from funding any group under investigation by the government. (This has conferred legitimacy and signficance on the probe into Planned Parenthood that has been launched by anti-abortion GOP Rep. Cliff Stearns of Florida.)

Now the meme is that poor people are going to be hurt by this defunding decision. Balderdash.
ADDITIONALLY: a tweet I caught within the past hour from this linked source indicates that the "Top public health official" with Komen-for-the-Cure has resigned over this building controversy.
California Democrat abortion nazis are also voicing their displeasure. This is most probably not over.
Does Planned Parenthood actually coduct mammograms or do they do manual test for lumps? Susam G. Komen only deals with breast cancer, right?
Please. PP doesn’t even do the screenings, from what I’ve read, they just send the women someplace else. Plus, those donations were fungible to be used for whatever they wanted. And it’s obvious what they spend most of the money on and it’s not preventative care.

Money is fungable.
It ALL supports killing babies.
Did you ever audit a drunk’s budget, to decide how much to give him?
They’re pro-choice, until their choice is not chosen.
Who the hell do these 22 ‘RAT buffoons think they are? What the Komen Foundation does with its money is none of these commie bass turds’ business. ‘RATS Gone Wild again.
No. They don't have the equiptment.
You have to keep in mind the motivation behind most pro-aborts. It’s that they viscerally KNOW it’s murder of the most innocent, and don’t want any reminders from anywhere that there might be a moral component to abortion. Any indication that there might be something less than moral about abortion, including not fully publicly funding it, leads inexorably to the conclusion that they advocate the murder of innocents in the name of convenience.
If the Komen organization turns and runs on this issue they are done-for as an organization. The cat is out of the bag, and the only way for them to continue is to hold firm and stick to their mission’s stated purpose.
So they are misleading folks.... sending them offsite for mammograms but taking all the money for ????? damn them.
“Hello, I thought you were dedicated to fighting cancer, saving lies.... you man the money we donate goes to a group that has slaughtered millions of babies??? What does that have to do with fighting cancer? Are you people insane?”
Not that I have anything to donate but if I did it wouldn’t be Komen or Girl Scouts for sure
I respect a senator just slightly less than I respect the local maggot.
Shove it your collective (very) smelly Obamas, senators.
After that, shove it again.
Don’t forget to breathe, buttholes.
saying the money you give them doesn’t go for abortions is like saying you only fill up the shallow end of the swimming pool.
