    A supporter sent this to Planned Parenthood. We couldn't have said it better. If you agree, sign on:
    This is for all the anti-choice, anti-women people out there.

    Listen up.

    You can spend every minute of every day trying to force the rest of us to live by your ideology. You can go after federal funds for health care and pressure private organizations like the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation to stop funding breast cancer screenings for poor women. You can try to make it impossible to get birth control.

    But you know what you can't do? You can't win. You can't break us. Planned Parenthood isn't just a family of organizations. It's a movement. It's women and men of all ages who believe that health care — including reproductive health care — is a basic human right. We are millions strong. We are everywhere. We act, we give, and we do whatever it takes to make sure that Planned Parenthood is there for the women, men, and teens who rely on them.

    Know this: When you go after Planned Parenthood and the people they serve, you go after ME. I stand with Planned Parenthood. I stand with them against anyone who wants to stop women from receiving the health care they need. I stand with them today, tomorrow, and for as long as I need to.

    I signed that petition.

    At the end of the day, PP is going to get boatloads of charity money from other sources and SBK won't get a dime. Karma will be quick on this foolishness.

    Planned Parenthood will definitely be getting a big donation from me shortly.

    Start plastering your page in support of PP...that is what I am doing. Why do they get to voice their opinions but you can't?

Yes, they provide abortions, but they provide so much more.

    By all means sign the petition, but don't stop there!

    email at news@komen.org (now corrected, thanks, Greys!)

    Call at 1-877-465-6636

    Just do it! We need to overwhelm them with comments. There are other groups that need to see for once and for all there are many more people supporting womens rights that they ever dreamed of. Enough of a few thousand screaming anti women getting all the attention. We can stay quiet no longer. Please!!

    And Grimm, thank you, you big teddy bear. And thank all your rainbow band of warriors.

    NBC Nightly New is covering this right now!!

    Send their partners mail too.

    Corporate Partners

    Susan G. Komen for the Cure is dedicated to setting new standards for creative collaboration in the fight against breast cancer.
    Our corporate partners provide us with the opportunity to reach people where they live, work, and play. In addition to a financial contribution, each of these organizations have found a unique way to get their customers and employees involved in raising awareness and hope that we will one-day find the cures. We thank them for their commitment to the fight to end breast cancer.

    Some more fun information:

    What can make the politics of Komen for the Cure's Planned Parenthood decision look worse? Have a scandal-plagued, right-wing senator take credit for the decision.


    Associated Press
    Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) ... lauded Komen's action, saying: "This is a welcome, long-overdue decision that will make Komen more effective in the fight against breast cancer, which is why I wrote a letter to Komen's founder and CEO last May urging her to take this step." [...]

    Vitter had sent a letter to Komen founder and CEO Nancy Brinker urging her to end Komen's association with Planned Parenthood and give the grant money directly to mammogram providers.

    Vitter is perhaps best known for running as a "family values" conservative who was later caught hiring prostitutes.

    The senator's boasts notwithstanding, Komen's decision has caused quite an uproar. Planned Parenthood's supporters have responded by contributing $400,000 to the health organization in just one day. (By some estimates, that figure is even higher.) That doesn't make up for the loss of $700,000 in grants, but after one day, it's close.

    Even one of Komen's own affiliates is outraged.

    The Connecticut affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure said in a statement on Wednesday that it "shares" people's frustration over the decision and that it will continue funding Planned Parenthood of New England.

    "The decision regarding the funding of Planned Parenthood was made by Susan G. Komen for the Cure National Headquarters," the group posted on its Facebook wall. "Susan G. Komen for the Cure Connecticut enjoys a great partnership with Planned Parenthood, and is currently funding Planned Parenthood of Southern New England. We understand, and share, in the frustration around this situation."

    On Capitol Hill, Vitter is obviously pleased, but champions of women's health are not. "I have been a big booster of the Susan G. Komen organization," Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) said on the House floor, "but not anymore."

    The Economist added that yesterday's decision "might cost Susan G. Komen more than it does Planned Parenthood."

    Let's not forget to slam SGK top sponsors. They are:

    1. American Airlines
    2. Bank of America
    3. Belk
    4. Caterpillar
    5. Rally for the Cure
    6. Ford
    7. General Mills
    8. New Balance
    9. Walgreens
    10. Yoplait

    Also to this list I will add Energizer (I have pink ribbon batteries in my house right now. And to think, I deliberately chose those when buying batteries for Christmas. Ugh)


    JINX! Now twitchy owes me a drink too.
