    Komen Backs Off Decision on Funding Cuts

    Komen backs off decision on funding cuts - Health - Women's health - msnbc.com


    additionally, komen has reversed their decision on funding pp.

    "I have dedicated my career to fighting for the rights of the marginalized and underserved," she wrote. "And I believe it would be a mistake for any organization to bow to political pressure and compromise its mission."
    good news.

    I hadn't seen this yet. Very good news!

    The decision to stop funding under a rule that was applied only to Planned Parenthood, was a firestorm of their own making. They fund cancer research at Penn State, which is also under investigation, but did not cancel their funding. Kind of undermined the whole rule thing.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Big dummies. The motivation was transparent. The new VP of Public Policy is anti-Planned Parenthood and though they protested she had nothing to do with it, the resignations of top people speak against that assertion.

    So the moral of the story is: Once you donate to Planned Parenthood, you are not allowed the stop.

    Sounds like the mob.

    Discontinuing is fine. Non-profits have the right pick and choose and change their minds. Just don't manufacture a false reason, as they did.

    What people aren't saying is that abortion itself is a cause of breast cancer.

    Debunked:
    From the website of the National Cancer Institute:

    "In February 2003, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) convened a workshop of over 100 of the world’s leading experts who study pregnancy and breast cancer risk. Workshop participants reviewed existing population-based, clinical, and animal studies on the relationship between pregnancy and breast cancer risk, including studies of induced and spontaneous abortions. They concluded that having an abortion or miscarriage does not increase a woman’s subsequent risk of developing breast cancer."

    A summary of the findings can be found in the Summary Report: Early Reproductive Events and Breast Cancer Workshop.
