    Right now, if you can afford $5, any thing!

    Donate to Planned Parenthood Online - Planned Parenthood Action
    Well I had not kept up with this today, so I went and donated ten dollars..and then found out while reading the thread more that SJK had reversed the decision, but with more reading, they are full of it and lying so glad I donated. I did not see on the site where I could send the thank you note to anyone (the bitch karen Handel) though.?

    My husband in particular has been on a tear for a long time now about how corrupt SGK is and seeing this play out has been very satisfying for him.

    Aside from that, I do think the ribbon transcends sgk and I don't have a problem with its continued use, in fact I would encourage it. Just go get your ribbon from the fabric store and make your own.
    it was Evelyn Lauder who was a VP or something at the time at Estee Lauder.

    All this money and support, I just don't see what it's producing, whether all that dough has been effectual in increasing detection and survival rates of breast cancer.

    Good for you for winning the fight! I can't imagine what that was like.
    my pink ribbon (which is on my shirt or purse most of the time usually starts up a conversation with people. I don't want anyone to go through what i went through (waiting a YEAR before checking out a lump) so if it starts up one conversation and sends that women to get checked, its done its job.

    Jesus deb! That's horrifying. Yep, wear that with pride. Maybe it's time for a trip to the obnoxious doctor (hate him, but need lots of little things checked.)

    I didn't see the place for a thank you to her either,Soj. I donated straight to the chapter that covers Noth Texas, though.

    On the donation page, the tab labeled "Honorary Giving" allows you to specify "in honor of" or "in memory of", and you can include where to send the acknowledgment. The same tabs are available if you're donating to a specific chapter.

    I just donated to my local chapter in Karen Handel's honor. It gives me malicious glee to think of her getting those notifications!

    I applied for a job to work at PP when I was still living in DC. I was about 21 or 22 and the position was for a receptionist or jr. admin. My friend was an escort for PP and he loved it. He was a big, tall gay man and he loved to piss off the protesters. There were a lot of them on any given day. Anyway, during my interview, they basically told me that there were some scary things that happened there on a weekly, if not daily, basis. There were protesters, people that would actually make appointments for services and cause a huge disturbance once inside, bomb threats, etc. It was a pretty hostile environment, but the people were so nice and committed to what they were doing.

    if it makes you feel any better, men still have to get prostate exams and those are worse than a mammogram.

    Hell....a finger in the ass is no big deal. I'll bet many more men than will admit are shocked as hell that it doesn't feel so bad.

    Unless there's something really bad going on up there I'll bet my boobs are way more sensitive at least 1-2 weeks out of every month. And even if you catch them on a tough day it still hurts to get em squashed all to hell!

    When they make men get their nuts squished in a similar manner then I'll feel sorry for the poor things. Also a good time to remind we get to take a speculum up the twat and get scraped yearly too.

    Some men have to get mamos,too. My Grandfather had breast cancer, so I asked the lady who was doing mine if they had to have one. She said yes, they do and it is real struggle! Can you imagine.

    I just donated $50 to PP in honor of Karen Handel.

    When I was 20 or 21 years old and sexually active, I went to my mom's gyn for an exam. After the exam I asked for a prescription for the pill. The doctor refused, saying that she didn't believe in prescribing birth control to unmarried women. How incredibly irresponsible of this doctor! I was also completely humiliated and scared she would tell my mother. And I was a legal adult! I ended up at Planned Parenthood and had to have another vaginal exam and I was plenty pissed. PP had no problems, obviously with doing the RIGHT thing and giving birth control to a sexually active woman who wanted to prevent pregnancy. I remember it well even though it was over 20 years ago because I felt so powerless. Who was I to complain to?

    What has come out about SGK Foundation in the last several days is appalling. The salaries the executives take, how little they actually give away as a percentage of their revenue, and the fact that there has in fact been NO progress toward a "cure" at all. The only function they serve as far as I can tell is to encourage women by putting emphasis on surviving. But they're in bed with the pharmaceutical companies who sell the chemo poisons and have NO incentive to cure breast cancer or any cancer for that matter because the treatment is a cash cow. SGK is just a big slush fund that pays extremely high salaries to its officers and does little good for women's health.

    Several decades ago I went to an abortion clinic in Virginia. It was during a time when they had been threatening to bomb the various clinics down there. setting fires etc. So I had the procedure done with no anesthesia whatsoever so I could run out of the building if anything happened. It was very unpleasant. I don't understand why these people think the unborn are so much more important than the people who are already here. I too was shocked at many of the comments on the FB page.
