Double-talk Straight-talk

This has me so incensed I cannot believe it!  That one madman woman can have the audacity to stand on her podium and say how this is good for all women is beyond belief.

I’m talking of course about the Komen Foundation who recently announced their end of support to Planned Parenthood Breast Exams & Screening for women.  Susan G. Komen would literally turn in her grave if she were alive.

So many women…. poor women… are dependent upon organizations – charities.  My friends run (or used to now) in the Race for a Cure to drive money and in memory of women they knew who had cancer…. and yet…here is the organization that has the slickest marketing going and has turned their heart and soul to women in need…. at the core of their purported purpose!

This is the same organization that invented pink-washing by creating and selling a perfume that was actually toxic to women and led to breast cancer!

Since when has politics taken the driver’s seat to steer humanity and common sense into a ditch?  Execs in the organization are resigning over this… and I applaud them.  IF you ever want to contribute to an organization or hear truth, please go to Breast Cancer Action .

Planned Parenthood is receiving contributions outside of Komen (thank goodness), as a result of this fiasco.   What an ugly face we wear when we have no heart and soul.

    Thanks for putting words to our anger! I’m so glad to hear that the contributions are pouring into PP–substantially more than they got from Komen according to the morning paper. It does hurt though, that the organization we’ve all supported in hopes that other women don’t have to join our club has such a narrow perspective.
