Update: “Komen backs down, apologizes, pledges to fund Planned Parenthood.”

Update! “Komen apologizes for ‘recent decisions,’ pledges to continue funding Planned Parenthood.”

Update: Komen’s rankings and support are collapsing.

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.”

GOP in the house!

Update: Great summary here. Donations are pouring in to Planned Parenthood. I think at this point, given this new info, we can safely call for a protest against Komen’s new politically-motivated leaders. ~ ed.

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.

Via Fox News: The change will mean a cutoff of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, mainly for breast exams.

Hope you’re happy: less breast cancer screenings for American women!

Click image for source: “Things that cannot screen for breast cancer and things that can.

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.”

Sad? Click here to take respectful action.
