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.)

That’s 2 dozen Senators that need to be rejected at the polls.
The whole cancer industry is a fraud. Money for abortions, money for ‘researchers’ and money for liberal ideologist opportunists.
It was thought for a while that there was link, but the final study concluded no link. Not even an elevated number.
Link between abortions and increase chance of breast cancer could explain why they want to break off association. If proven,law suits could follow.
I guess that no one at SGK has read the research showing a significant correlation between having an abortion and subsequently developing breast cancer. That, alone, should justify the denial of any funding for PP by SGK.
How about Great Leader just issue an edict from on high demaning the Komen organization provide on-demand abortion and give half of all their proceeds to Planned Parenthood? That would solve the problem, right? I mean, it’s not like the Federal Government has limits on private individuals or organizations or anything. Golly people - get with the pogrom.
So contra-intuitive. Groups that have high levels of abortion literally decrease their percentage of the population, breeding themselves out of existence. Natural selection’s a bitch.
That’s for sure.
Yes. Induced (not spontaneous) abortion increases a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 30-50%.
This is the height of incredulity! How does the Congress have ANY sway over who a private entity chooses to make a donation to?
screw them all dems like romeny and trump......that trump backed a liar is way too much for me.....
Two dozen senators, OK. How many of US have contacted them with praise for the move and a promise of financial support if they stay on the right path?
In other news, 76 Senators did not...
Looking at the uproar your decision to defund Planned Parenthood has caused, I say bully for you.
You have your rule. And it's a good, logical, reasoned rule. Planned Parenthood falls within the rule. Planned Parenthood is under investigation. No more money to them.
I just read that a bunch of Democratic Senators are sending you a "toughly worded" letter urging you to reverse your decision. The letter says in part:
Hold the line!
PP and the left do as much as possible to squash any talk of increased breast cancer risks after abortions. They truly are sick bastards.
Toughly worded letter...killing a baby...toughly worded letter...killing a baby...toughly worded letter...killing a baby
We’ve got a lot of work to do.
They will destroy Komen.
