Yesterday people who want the best for women and their health rejoiced at the announcement that Susan G. Komen for the Cure was ending it's relationship with Planned Parenthood.
Because of their past support of an organization that not only commits abortion but also hides child sex abuse, engages in Medicare fraud, and wastes my taxpayer money, I had never been able to give to Komen for the Cure.
I am so grateful that Komen is no longer letting their money support such a criminal organization. They've stopped enabling the victimization of poor, uninsured women, unborn babies, and abuse victims at Planned Parenthood. Now they can focus on sending their anti-cancer donations to legitimate organizations that save lives instead of killing them by the millions. Komen can support groups that actually perform mammograms - unlike abortion giant Planned Parenthood that only refers women elsewhere for life saving mammograms.
Predictably Planned Parenthood wing-nuts went crazy over this sensible decision. To the Planned Parenthood useful idiots crying "shame, shame" on Komen for the Cure for cutting off ties with the biggest abortion business in the country, I say, "Shame on Komen for not cutting ties with Planned Parenthood earlier!"
Clearly all the people who went to Facebook and Twitter to condemn Komen, pledge to never support them again and give money directly to Planned Parenthood instead were just radical Planned Parenthood cultists who were never interested in helping fight breast cancer but only in laundering money to Planned Parenthood. Why would ANYONE give money to Komen with the intention of helping Planned Parenthood?? If these people actually did that, they were fools and now they're just cutting out the middleman in donating directly to PP, which they should have been doing anyway. And shame on them for choosing pushing abortion over fighting breast cancer.
Now, aside from Planned Parenthood being a Big Abortion business that aborts a baby every 96 seconds - fine, I get that some people are ok with this destruction of innocent human life - that's not even Komen's reason for cutting ties. PP is under under Congressional investigation for a multitude of crimes - which should concern ALL sides of the political spectrum.
How serious are these charges? U.S. News and World Report's Washington Whispers reports:
New charges from seven former workers—including a self-described "abortion doctor"—that Planned Parenthood used federal money for abortions despite prohibitions is expected to fire up Republicans seeking to shut off tax dollars to the massive family planning group.Unfortunately Planned Parenthood devotees don't care about any of this, no matter how many women, children, and families are hurt.
In a letter to the House committee investigating Planned Parenthood, the seven former workers also charged that they have witnessed staffers fail to notify parents when a minor sought an abortion, failed to provide a women undergoing an abortion with "accurate and relevant information" regarding the stage of her pregnancy, or detect and act upon instances were a female was brought to a clinic under coercion, possibly even human trafficking.
...The committee is probing allegations that Planned Parenthood is misusing taxpayer funds, which the seven pegged at $1 million a day in state and federal support. In opening his investigation, Florida Republican Rep. Cliff Stearns recently demanded documents related to audits, abortion-funding, and policies on reporting sexual abuse from Planned Parenthood.
Here are some of my posts about the disgusting practices of Planned Parenthood:

UPDATE 2/2: -
Komen supporters accuse Planned Parenthood of milking Komen’s decision to generate a fund-raising bonanza.That's all that is important to Planned Parenthood - money. That's why they go around like Chicken Little shrieking that MILLIONS OF POOR WOMEN WILL DIE IN THE STREETS!!!!!111!!! if they get a tiny fraction of their budget defunded so they can shake the pockets of their gullible fanatics. Pure lies, just to keep the blood money rolling in. Disgusting!
“Why are they going nuts?” Mr. Raffaelli [a Komen board member] asked rhetorically. “And the answer is that they want to raise money, and they’re doing it at the expense of a humanitarian organization that shares their goals and has given them millions of dollars over the years.”(via NYT)
UPDATE 2/5: In trying to put all the blame for defunding Planned Parenthood on Komen VP Karen Handel, liberal HuffPo surprisingly includes information on PP's oppressive, thuggish, and even violent tactics:
The backlash against Komen was intense, including threats of violence, angry letters from members of Congress and public rebukes from political figures such as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The charity struggled to deal with the pressure, especially in a face-off against Planned Parenthood, an organization whose fine-tuned political team has experience in these high-pitched, high-stakes debates.So, the biggest abortion business in the country, with a budget of $1.1 BILLION, that doesn't even provide mammograms, just got its supporters to destroy a breast cancer charity with a $400 million budget over the loss of less than $700,000 in grants, some of which were not even defunded? Disgusting. Again, Planned Parenthood is evil.
"Komen is a great group, but politically speaking, they're no match for Planned Parenthood."
But as a result of her efforts, Komen has been left reeling and its reputation as a top charity endangered. "We're under attack. We're getting threats of violence," the source said. "It's devastating."
