    An organization that's worthy of our support is Dr. Susan Love's foundation--
    Home - Army of Women. It's focused on finding the CAUSES of breast cancer so we can understand and prevent it, not just try to treat it/cure it after the fact.
    This is where we can all help. Dr Susan Love has devoted her adult life to breast cancer, breast cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and long-term survivorship.

    Oh, so SGK's statement was that their decision was NOT politically motivated but because PP was under investigation, yet their VP, Karen Handel, retweets this comment:

    Wow, what an idiotic statement for her to make in her position. That backlash is going to get even uglier.

    random thought: does this impact planned parenthood in Canada also? I can't seem to find anything. Was wondering if the relationship with the parent organization in the US might affect it.

    I wish I could remember Grimm, but there is a website collecting all the state and local SGK foundations who are severing from the main SGK foundation. I know Denver, Connecticut and a couple other places have issued statements that they will maintain their PP relationship and keep funding PP. This makes me happy because I will still be able to support my one friend who Walks, the one in Denver. Don't know about the one in Baltimore yet. Hopefully the Candian branches will follow suit, if they're not already separate from SGK Main.

    Your mom is Joan Rivers?

    I signed the petition too. I bet they lose a lot of sponsorship over this (I HOPE they lose a lot of sponsorship - they deserve to). Did they really think there would be no backlash?

    the asshole pro life person on my fb is a twat. I posted the link on my FB and her remark? DEB YOU KNOW THEY DON'T DO MAMMOGRAMS AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

    to which i responded
    Andrea they refer the patient to places if they find something suspicious. With no insurance some of these women might not catch the cancer soon enough. I am pro ANYTHING that finds or rules out cancer early

    and then 'she said'
    Susan g Komen donates to this website cancernavigator.org that is supposed to give u lots of info on mammograms, screenings, financial aid, and more

    and me
    Andrea, my point is that PP is NOT just about abortion. They also give out information and supplies to PREVENT pregnancy. They do exams to save womens lives. not just breast exams either.

    i'd block her ass, but i'm counting on my Breast Cancer survivor friends showing up and commenting. Then i'll block her

    Just please keep up the emails & phone calls. I want that VP out on her ever so Republican ass. I am sick of the majority of us being being forced to live with their stupid decisions.

    Here in Texas, women are forced to have an ultasound and some poor doctor has to describe something smaller than a bumblebee before they can get a legal abortion!

    Not surprised. I guess you can't be purely philanthropic with the best intentions for the people you're allegedly helping these days without having a political agenda that includes trying to kill a bill that would focus on a breast cancer vaccine
    Right now, they're opposing the Accelerating the End of Breast Cancer Act - a bill that will create an oversight panel to focus research funding on a streamlined agenda to create a breast cancer vaccine and to find a way to stop breast cancer metastasis.
    to prevent it in the first place - after all, what would they do with their vast amounts of spare time if it were wiped out? Their clout would be in the toilet. THAT's the priority.

    "Billions of dollars have been raised through the tireless efforts of women and men devoted to putting an end to breast cancer. Yet, breast cancer rates in North America have risen to 1 in 8. "What's going on?" asks Barbara Brenner in Pink Ribbons, Inc. a new film coming in 2012.

    This feature documentary visits some of the massive fundraising runs and questions where the money goes and asks 'who really profits from pink ribbon campaigns?'. We meet women with metastatic breast cancer from the IV League support group of Austen, Texas who openly tell us their stories."

    I'm with you guys: I've emailed, signed the petition and will bombard their facebook. SGK is nothing but a big ol' bully anyway. they can shove their pink ribbons up their wingnut asses!

You could get your exam every 6months for $35 dollars and packs of pills were $7 (and you could get 6 packs at a time). Hell, they had free condoms on the counter. Yes, they provide abortions, but they provide so much more.
    Amen. People are just stupid sometimes. So many of my friends in high school could get their birth control and yearly exams there when their stupid parents refused to entertain the idea that their precious children really were fucking!

    Again, AGREE. SGK is a fucking playground bully.

    ETA: Spoke too soon, that email got bounced back to me. It was a spelling error, its Komen, not koman.
    Mine went through and I told them to kiss my ass.

    JINX! Now twitchy owes me a drink too.
    Noted. All those asswipes (and the one's twitch posted too) will be boycotted by ME and everyone I know.

    That's how we get the message to them - through their pockets.

    The sooner the bitch is unemployed, the better. But she's done irreparable harm to SGK - which is also good.

    Stealing this awesome comment from their FB page:

    You can donate as little as $5. to Planned Parenthood and they will send a thank you note to the person you wish to honor with your donation.

    That’s pretty cool, because you can choose to honor:

    Karen Handel
    Senior VP of Fail

    P.O. Box 650309
