Updates: Susan G. Komen charity turns right, pulls funding for breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood.
“Thank you for cutting off funding to cancer screening programs in order to prove that you are pro-life.”
I try really hard to respect all political persuasions. It’s really hard today.
Congratulations, Republicans: you’ve just got America’s leading Breast Cancer charity up against America’s leading women’s healthcare service provider.
Hope you’re happy: less breast cancer screenings for American women!

And for those who are yelling about PP not doing mammograms, “screenings” are not just mammograms. ”Screenings” are also breast exams, which are the first line of defense. Those breast exams are done every time a woman has a pelvic exam, which she needs in order to get birth control or STI testing. Get it together. Semantics do not change the facts.”
