The Susan G. Komen Race to Find A Spine; a Followup

This is my original post, in case you need to be brought up to speed. Those spineless guano-faucets came up with their new policy after they hired a failed acolyte of Caribou Barbie as a vice president.

TBogg has a great suggestion to make a donation to Planned Parenthood. What you should do is click the tab that says "honorary giving". That allows you to specify who should receive notification of a honorary gift being given in their name.

And this is who you should name:
Karen Handel
Senior VP of Fail
c/o Susan G. Komen Foundation
P.O. Box 650309
Dallas, TX 75265-0309
The Komen Foundation could have chosen not to jump into this fight. But they have and they may have found that they have now drawn a big target on themselves. Planned Parenthood has probably scored over a half-million in donations since the news broke.

And a shitload of people won't give a dime to Komen for the foreseeable future. Tough shit, assholes. You chose to play politics. We will see what that gets you.

Update: The Komenites have partnered with an American war criminal who cannot travel outside of the county for fear of being arrested.

They have also been whining about how unfair it is for people to complain and not give them money because they chose to jump in on one side of a hot-button fight. Again, tough shit. If you pick a side in a war, you have no cause to complain when the folks on the other side commence shooting at you.

The Komanies burst on the scene a few years back and since then I've been saying who? WTF are they doing when there were at least two others here actively doing walks and other education efforts.

No they pull this crap. From a practical point of view we need women getting exams be they basic physicals or breast exams and mamograms. That's the first line for fighting breast disease not this political falderal

Supporting Planned parenthood is a good thing. The Komeni will fragment and damage the effort to eradicate a disease.

These "Komenis" (love the term Eck! since it reminds one of the great, late Iranian feminist, the Ayatollah Khomeini as well as his similarly-named successor) have with this utterly cynical, Rethuglican move gone a long way to undermining the breast cancer community's solidarity. My wife had breast cancer, now in remission but even if she hadn't I would regard this disgusting move to throw PP under the bus when they are one of the few places offering poor women health services as reprehensible. So I sent PP a contribuution in "honor" of Handel.

In a *bigger* followup, SGK also cut off support for stem cell research, one of the most promising possibilities for actually curing cancer rather than just cutting it out via one way or another. So apparently the only breast cancer research they're going to support going forward is going to be pray-the-cancer-away research, which I'm sure will work just as well as pray-the-gay-away has worked...
