I was glad to see that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization is de-funding Planned Parenthood. Some have speculated that it could be temporary, but Jill Stanek gives some good reasons that it may be permanent (such as how PP burned bridges in leaking the story and demonizing Komen). You can see how much PP really cares about women. More about their “scorched earth” campaign against Komen here.
I realize there are still some concerns about Komen ignoring the breast cancer / abortion link and other things, but I still encourage people to email them at news@Komen.org to applaud their decision and ask them to stick to it.
Predictably, the pro-abortion forces are in a full-scale tizzy. As Stanek notes, this may be to frighten other organizations out of ending their support of PP. The Komen funding was a rounding error for PP and their extravagant budgets, but PP wouldn’t want others to follow suit. And of course the symbolism is embarrassing for them when an iconic pro-women’s group de-funds them.
The head of Planned Parenthood and various politicians lied and said that PP did mammograms, when the truth is that they do a minor amount of breast exams that anyone could do themselves at home.
This is a great example of the system working. People like Lila Rose have exposed the evils of PP (beyond the destruction of innocent human life) and that is causing a lot of problems for them. See this Planned Parenthood overview for how, in addition to being the top destroyer of human life in the country, they systematically hide statutory rape and sex trafficking (when not teaching your kids to ignore the perspectives on human sexuality that you and your religion hold).
Planned Parenthood is not good for women. Their reaction to this situation is more proof of that. Regardless of their real motives, I’m glad Komen stopped funding them.
