The Dallas Morning News reports that the Komen Foundation is reversing its earlier decision to stop funding cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood. This is after Fox "straight news" anchor Martha MacCallum said, during a discussion with "Concerned Woman for America" Penny Nance who supported the decision and a doctor who didn't, that "They're a private organization who should be able to spend their money as they see fit." Well, Martha, looks like those who care about women don't agree with you and we won!
They aren’t going to do much more than try and spin out of as much pressure as they can,save what they can,and keep the spice flowing.
I say screw Komen. If they want to go this route,there are plenty of charities for me to donate to that support women’s issues without wearing a brownshirt or packing a GOP sign. I’ll deal with those,and Planned Parenthood directly.
Was Komen’s Nancy Brinker Lying Yesterday Or Is She Lying Today?
Following a new statement Komen for the Cure released making many observers believe the breast cancer charity reversed position on whether it would fund grants to Planned Parenthood, one Komen board member says it hasnât caved.
Komen board member John Raffaelli talked with the Washington Post after the statement was released and said the new announcement doesnât necessarily mean there is any reversal until and unless Planned Parenthood receives additional funding beyond what was already planned before Komenâs December decision.
Never trust a neocon.
Mayor Bloomberg donated $250,000 directly to PP yesterday!
Nancy Brinker, anti-choice asshole, had a bragging attitude yesterday. She was proud of her decision and even lied, claiming that SGKF had not suffered in the least…that the responses had been favorable. Today SGKF all of a sudden apologizes. It should make people wonder why. And your observation is spot on.
I’m not buying it and I hope no one else is either. I will still not volunteer or contribute to SGKF until the anti-choice asshole is out of there, and SGKF stops allowing the American Taliban to dictate who they’ll help. Planned Parenthood will still get my direct donations instead.
These neocons keep trying to KILL poor people, state by state . .
SOOOoooo very UNChristian, isn’t it?
To me, this is just a ‘clever’ attempt to divert some of the pressure they’re experiencing.
This is NOT a victory…..yet.
