What I wish I had written...

I have only a passing familiarity with the facts and have not had the time to bone up on the full story of the Planned Parenthood organization's loss of a grant from the Susan G Komen Foundation.  I only wish I had written as clearly as Mollie Z. has already written on GetReligion.  So rather than duplicate her words, I will simply encourage you to read her account of the action, the news media hype, and the obvious bias for Planned Parenthood which is the shadow story behind this one.

Read the incredible Mollie Z. here....

Or you can read more by Mollie here.....

I sent this message to Susan G. Komen for the Cure:

I'm sorry but I take back my support of your organization. You do great work helping out with the cause of women's breast cancer, but you made a mess out of this situation this week. You showed those who embrace radical secularism that they have the power and made the religious people who oppose abortion look like fools. I was going to make you one of the charities my family supports on a regular basis, but that door was closed by the announcement that you are changing your mind. We will wait to hear what it is you actually do, and we ask you to really look at why an organization whose mission is to save lives would support an organization that performs so many abortions ( Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the United States in 2009).

No, they don't.

Go look them up.

Anyway, the stupid thing about giving money to Planned Parenthood for breast exams is that the kind of breast exams PP does are just part of a check up. They aren't a separate service that people go to the doctor for. It would be like giving PP a grant to check women's blood pressure. Getting your blood pressure checked is just part of a check up, not a separate service that you pay for separately. Just try asking your doctor to charge you less for not checking your blood pressure. He would give you a funny look and just tell you it is included in a check up. The whole breast exam thing was just an excuse for the Komen foundation to give money to Planned Parenthood.

It was reported last night that The Komen Foundation has reversed itself regarding ending grants to Planned Parenthood.

One finds it difficult to believe and donate to an organization that states that it's dedicated to saving lives, then itself gives grants to an organization that acts contrary to such dedication.

I meant to say that one finds it IMPOSSIBLE to believe and donate to an organization that states that it's dedicated to saving lives, then itself gives grants to an organization that acts contrary to such dedication.
