I came home from work yesterday to find the world spinning out of control. Planned Parenthood has bullied the Susan G. Komen Foundation into changing it's mind about defunding. Both organizations reaped huge donations from the publicity that was garnered by the four day media blitz. I found that interesting. Maybe now my tax dollars won't be needed?
So what happened? Did Planned Parenthood really bully the Komen Foundation into rescinding it's funding? Or was the Koman Foundation's carefully worded press release something entirely different? Here are few of the articles I found:
And this from Eric J. Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League:
“Yesterday's statement by Susan G. Komen for the Cure apologizing for their decision to cease giving grants to Planned Parenthood leaves in doubt whether the nation’s largest abortion chain will actually be eligible for future grants from the breast cancer foundation, since they don’t actually provide mammograms.”
“But what is clear is that Planned Parenthood is willing to hold breast cancer victims and their families hostage in order to preserve their phony positive public image, and to send a clear message to other corporate supporters that they can expect the same kind of treatment if they dare to withdraw funding from Planned Parenthood.
“Planned Parenthood would rather abort Susan G. Komen than allow them to quietly withdraw from the culture wars.”
Obviously this isn't over. Keep praying!
