Must be the ex-employee (gal named Williams) who got this cr*p going has some dirt on the founder and the other officers.

Wonder what that is?

No doubt it involves stealing ~ and PP understood both how naive that target was and how everybody over there must have been digging deep into the trough of contributions.

No doubt they should be investigated by the state attorney general wherever they are incorporated.

This is why I urged people who started to give them money the last few days to not do it. Don’t trust them.

BTW this is a nice preview of exactly what will happen with Romney on this issue too.

I feel sorry for all those that gave over the last two days.

Komen will die on the vine over the next 2 or three years. They will be a shell of their former selves. This reversal will kill them.

No one likes a flip-flopper. Either you were wrong before, or you’re wrong now.

In any case...NO ONE (pro-deathers or pro-lifers) are happy with SGK now.

The Pro abortion dem congresscritters threatened to supoenea all of Komen’s financial records and put them under the kleig lights in DC. Komen caved under the pressure. The thirst of the baby killers seems unquenchable.

Hopefully this will really hurt them. Until a few days ago most people were totally unaware that they were giving money to Big Murder, but that's all changed now.

Komen's average daily donations DOUBLED this week, this should gut them. They have blood on their hands and they deserve to be shown for exactly what they are.

This is an incredible mistake. The fact that a wide majority of people had no idea they were funneling cash to Planned Parenthood actually provided a backstop to the fallout from cutting it off. How many of those will cut off donations to SGK, now that they caved to the fascists?

And that’s right - no one likes a flip-flopper.

Unreal.

KOMEN CAVES

Sure, like Coca-Cola caved when New Coke bombed.

In other words, many of us think this was their plan all along. Get the faithful on each side to pour gobs of money into these organizations for a few days. Then, put things back the way they were while laughing all the way to the bank.

I always wondered if this Komen gang might be just another bunch of militant leftist baby-killing feminazi b*tches. Now we know.

They think it’s not criminal for PP to aid pimps of underaged sex slaves in evading the law?

Incredible.

I hope the people who donated since Komen said they weren’t going to fund PP can get their money back. I have refused to support Komen because of this. And it looks like I’ll have to continue refusing to support them.

And when I spoke to somebody from Komen about it I specifically mentioned their support of Planned Parenthood as the reason - particularly given that scientists have now documented the mechanism by which first-trimester abortion of first pregnancies (especially among teens) CAUSES breast cancer.

To claim to be fighting breast cancer while supporting the largest organization counseling and performing acts on women that will CAUSE breast cancer... is, quite frankly, false advertising, a deception, and despicable.

I cannot support Komen. And the whole thing pretty much sours me on the whole pink ribbon thing too.

Sickening. Blood money resumes.

Absolutely disgusting, but not surprising to me.

Our fantastic local conservative talk radio host - Jim Vicevich - tore the Director of the Susan G. Komen Connecticut chapter a new one this morning over this reversal. She insisted that Komen gives funds to Planned Parenthood "because PP provides breast health treatment and education". Yet she admitted that PP does NOT provide mammograms, and she was very vague in describing specifically what "breast health treatment and education" that PP supposedly provides is.

Vicevich got her to admit that she has no idea if $$ donated to Komen would end up paying for abortions at Planned Parenthood. Vicevich reminded her that the donation money given to Komen is fungible, thus impossible to track where exactly the money goes once it gets into Komen.

LOTS of irate callers this morning - mostly women - who had no idea that Komen has been supporting Planned Parenthood for so many years. All callers said they would stop giving money to Komen and/or participating in Komen run/walk races which raise money for the organization.

I will continue to give to other organizations seeking cures and treatments for cancer, but the Susan G. Komen charity will continue to not get a dime from me.

Too bad. I hope private of funding takes a sharp decline. Until Komen uses the money donated to them for the cause which Komen advocates, they'll not see me doing anything for them.

the Komen corporation has dirty fundraising hands.

this is and was ALWAYS about money. period.

This was NEVER about abortion (pro or against)

There are so many other more worthy organizations who are far far better at fundraising.

I;ve donated to the Komen fund, substantially, for the past three years and that will now come to a screeching halt...just because they caved. I, in a way, feel bad because they do good work for cancer patients.

not surprised here...why did they ever give in the first place?

they won't get a penny from me (except govt tax funds I guess)

never have

if you look at who runs Komen, it looks like a Geffen-Speilberg meets Harold Simmon’s pissed off daughter's lawn party in Highland Park...ripe with lefty socially radical liberals from urban areas...nearly all pro abort women apparently

why do these people always take the reins of foundations that are supposed to do good?

I mean can one not advance the defeat of breast cancer without having to pay up to the abortion providers...this whole ruse that Planned Parenthood does anything but abortions and birth control pills is pure crap dreamed up to legitimize them and it's a joke

and now here we are about to nominate a GOP candidate every bit as pro abort action wise as Obama

these are dark days folks

if you care...some here do not...you can find them quietly on bash Newt threads

This definitely goes down in marketing history as an EPIC PR FAIL.

Time will tell. I heard on the news yesterday that PP reported private donations had SOARED because of the original Komen announcement. No doubt Komen received quite a few donations from pro-lifers who now regret doing so.

So, both Komen and PP raked in the money for a few days. Now that Komen put things back the way they were, the baby-killing crowd will likely reward them. And, the pro-lifers gave when they otherwise wouldn't have.

"Epic fail"? No, I suspect this was another New Coke type of PR stunt. And, it worked beautifully (unless you're an unborn baby).
