Race For A [Political] Cure: Komen Cuts Off Funding For Planned Parenthood

Susan G. Komen for the Cure has previously been ridiculed for its bullying of other charities and its lawsuit against any charity using “for the cure” in its name or advertising. Now it is receiving criticism for cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood affiliates and preventive screening services. It is the first time the organization has cut off such funding based on a new rule involving organizations under investigation by Congress.

The House oversight and investigations subcommittee announced in the fall that it would investigate Planned Parenthood’s funding. The organization often becomes a hot button issue during election periods due to the abortion controversy.

Komen has been targeted in a campaign to defund Planned Parenthood. Last year, it hired a vice president who had previously advocated for the group’s defunding in her run for Georgia governor.

  1. My Tucson contact, who hates the Governor, says that Susan G. was a well-known golfer, of wealthy and well-placed folks there who died in her 30’s.
    Brinker got a good consultant who showed how simple ideas (pink ribbons) can be parleyed into a (give me the right word please!!! you know like disgusting con game—-like this republic!!).

    Give ’em social contact, give’em activities together, give’em poster sisters, etc etc,

    Considering her background it’s only natural she bought expert help.
    And with good PR, you’ve got a world wide business.

    Of course the background explains her views on people, her ethical responsibilities or is that irresponsibilities.. etc.
    Nuf said.

  2. Karen Handel resigns from Komen for the Cure

    Karen Handel, the former GOP candidate for governor, just announced her resignation as a senior vice president for public policy of Susan G. Komen for the Cure – one week after the breast cancer charity reversed itself on a decision to sever financial ties with Planned Parenthood.

    Good riddance. But she’s not the problem, those who approved this disaster, cough – Nancy Brinker – cough, are.
