Susan G. Koman for the Cure has reversed its decision to end grants to Planned Parenthood after twenty-two Democratic senators sent a letter to the group's founder and CEO urging it to reconsider the decision

I don't get how giving in to people who hacked your website to mock you is in your best interest. But whatever. Komen looks like a joke. And since I detested how they spent the money they raise (lots of waste) I don't feel bad about not giving them any.
so.. PP gets more money than ever - they get all the money pledged sonce Koman withdrew their grant (Including bloonberg’s matching contribution) and they get the origional money from Komen.
remind me not to give to Komen.
Well, AT LEAST, many people are now more aware of where their donation money could end up.
Some nasty people within the culture of death...
Incredible. I wrote them an e-mail supporting their decision to stop giving to PP, and I’m sure many others did too. They actually do good work, aside from that, and it’s really sad to see them putting their priorities on a project that is not even their own.
But to Dems, abortion is a sacrament and PP is its church.
Komen and Planned Parenthood did this to extract money from Pro Lifers and use that cash to murder babies.
I see a massive drop in their donation jars.
I was considering giving money to Komen, but I wanted to see if they had the guts to hold.
Glad I waited.
So, the pro-death people win. No money to Komen from me, EVER. I’m horrified.
We need to bombard them with the facts of the link between ABORTION and BREAST CANCER.
As far as I’m concerned, all these “cure” organizations are scams.
I’m trying to find their contact info to demand my donation back as it was generated under false pretenses. Their donantions doubled over two days, make them return the money. Make it hurt.
The phones and web-site at Kommen are melting!!!!
Me too- and breast cancer prevention and treatment is a huge issue for me, as my beautiful cousin has been fighting BC for 5 years now. I’m so disgusted.
I think they will see a very strong backlash.
The only good that can come of this is that the link between the Komen Foundation and the culture of death has been exposed for all the world to see.
Ye shall know them by their fruits.
“Make them return the money. Make it hurt.”
My thoughts, exactly!! Maybe it was a scam to raise money for both organizations.
Therefore... anyone who donates money to the Komen foundation, or buys any of those ubiquitous pink-marked products is supporting abortion — end of story.
A hundred specks of truth used to float one lie, or how a little leaven spoils the whole loaf.
NO DONOATIONS TO KOMEN
I applaud people who donate their time and money to a cause as worthy as fighting cancer. However, now the Komen Foundation
has caved to the biggest baby killer group in the U.S. I will no longer give one penny to them to support abortion.
And I am sick and tired of seeing pink on every professional baseball and football player for an entire month
every year. Pink bats, pink gloves, pink shoes. Enough already!
The rotten news just keeps coming today.
The attack on Komen was manufactured, orchestrated and promoted entirely by the leftest main stream media.
A long as the Left controls NBC,CBS,ABC,CNN,NYT,WP conservatives will remain virtually powerless to turn around the decline of America.
No politician, no organization, no corporation no matter how large, no matter how rich, no matter how popular can stand up to them.
Likewise no group on the left; teachers unions, unions in general, environmental extremists, race baiters, Democratic politicians Hollywood filth merchants and America haters could survive the scrutiny of an honest un-biased media. The survival of all the hateful tentacles of the leftest beast are dependent on their maintaining control of the main stream media. All efforts to weaken these tentacles will fail as long as the left controls the main stream media.
All the complaints and exposes by MRC, Fox News and Newsbusters are insufficient. Unless conservatives are willing to take some direct concrete action to punish financially the lefts propaganda machine and the corporations whose advertising dollars support this machine nothing will change for the better.
Rochester NY is now giving out condoms in their high schools. I believe this will be just another base for Planned Parenthood under a different name, i.e., a referral center. ALL PAID FOR BY THE GOVERNMENT.
You got talkradio and the internet for the conservatives, but that is about it.
let’s not forget how Komen’s donations skyrocketed since they announce no more PP funding. One wonders if they’ll return all that money???
Now for my little tantrum. I won’t buy any product with that pink ribbon on it.
Why do they call it PLANNED PARENTHOOD when it involves UNPLANNED PREGNANCIES and MURDER ?
At least the mask is now off.
Reading into this that they will continue to explore ways to get away from future grants to PP. What a mess. Reading the posts on facebook, SGK has managed to piss off people on all sides of the issue. At least the issue has been raised and has even given traction to the issue of PP supporting the Girl Scouts. Yay for that.
The liberal Death Factory is up and running again...can’t let those infants slip through the cracks, now...
Komen...fighting breast cancer to let adults live...while giving money to the Murder Machine to deny infants a chance to.
Yeah...that’s about right.
Mike Savage was right...liberalism IS a mental disorder.
Not to mention the fact that Abortion seems to increase the risk of breast cancer based on some recent studies.
This is because when a woman is pregnant her body prepares for the baby by increasing the growth rate of the breast tissue, an unexpected end to that pregnancy causes the body to be disrupted hormonally.
It’s not that throwing tantrums works. It’s that people who can wield the power of government, writing a private group “urging” them to do something, essentially threatening them with force, works.
What a kick in the face. Now all the donations they got from pro-lifers will go to fund abortions. Wow.
“..Not to mention the fact that Abortion seems to increase the risk of breast cancer ...
Those people are frigging insane. Justifying murder on the one hand, but yet “fighting for life” on the other hand.
But hey...WE’RE the “extremists”, right....go figure.
If you used your credit card you can contact you credit card company directly and have them give you the charge back. It happened to me on another instance and I had no trouble getting the money back.
Many of these charities are businesses pure and simple. You really want to help out with the fight against cancer ? Help the person ! Help them with bills that tend to build up when something like this affects them and their families. Be a listening ear, help with transportation, babysitting, meals etc....
Was only a matter of time.
Hopefully people will reserach their charities more carefully.
If one made a pledge based on their decision to end PP support, one only has to renege on the pledge and tell them to stick it.
I’m sure glad I didn’t reward them yesterday with a donation. Now... they get nothing... ever.
i lkinda like the idea of findong out what companies donate to them, and not buy from those companies.
Now it is up to donors. Namely, the donors need to stop sending money to Komen.
Komen is a pretty liberal organization so it is not surprising to see them stay with Planned Parenthood.
The only way to fight liberalism is to starve it to death.
I'd cancel the check.
I strongly disliked Komen - principally, their strong arming of donations at work, and incessant promotions. They had replaced "United Way" as my least favorite charity.
Then, yesterday, I said, "Hmmm. Nice to see them respond to the concerns of their donors. Maybe they're worth a second look".
Guess not. I'm composing a letter to them, with these very points. Will see what happens. Most likely, I'll feel better, and Komen will email a canned response.
Those were the first words out of my wife's mouth this morning upon hearing of Komen's cowardice and perfidy.
But now, all of the country can know Komen for what they are.
I also shun any product with the word "Green" on it.
The Earth-Goddess-Worshipping environmentalists have always been in the same camp with the abortionists.
-—Now all the donations they got from pro-lifers will go to fund abortions.-—
But the effort was not in vain. Now this Komen organization is known as a duplicitous, pro-abortion group.
The mask is off.
-—As far as Im concerned, all these cure organizations are scams.
At least in the following sense. When you pay for research, you get... research.
When you offer a reward for a cure, you get.... cures.
Can you imagine if wanted posters offered money to people to look for the bad guy?
Hardly surprising. Yesterday I said it’s real easy to just make a statement saying you’d quit, and whether they actually did was a totally different issue.
They are. There are many good people working for them, but they aren’t in on the scam.
It’s mainly about guilting people into donations, to propagate the group’s existence, turn them into ‘experts’ to raise their profile and power, and throw money over to certain research scientists so that it will never be used to ever make a cure.
For example the people researching natural anti-cancer compounds are not being funded by any of these ‘cure’ groups. You can’t patent natural substances. They do know they could patent pills and solutions of natural substances that are enhanced and compressed and released in patented special delivery systems (time released, etc), but they don’t want to touch natural compounds.
“And this is why the left is successful. Throwing tempertantrums still works”.
Yes.... however only when the media supports what you are tantrumming about!
