Susan G. Komen Foundation reverses decision to end grants to Planned Parenthood
This is the Yahoo Headline. It’s followed by few words, because really the headline IS the story. I don’t like the pinkification of a disease that ravages women, it ravages more than their breasts, though the breasts are what people love to discuss.
The question remains: is the damage done? Is it just too late to get everyone back?
I think it is.
There was never any controversy about the Walther P-22 handgun that benefitted the Susan G Komen marketing machine. Why? Well, because like abortions handguns are legal.
The question I’d like to ask of all of you is how you’ll spend that time. You see the Susan G Komen Foundation didn’t just steal your money and spend it suing other non profits who are actively seeking cures for cancer, they stole your time.
All that time spent walking, training and fundraising. My question to you is this:
How will you use that time to benefit women in your own backyard? It could prove to be quite valuable.
UPDATE: Folks keep asking if this is a real gun. Yes, it is… you know the saying, “Some comedy writes itself.”
UPDATE: The Susan G Komen foundation also stopped funding embryonic stem cell research centers. If you think for a single solitary second that SGK cares about the health of women you are wrong.
