    Nor are they using Komen's money for contraceptive at Planned Parenthood, you are the one who is trying to use contraception as an arguement against Planned Parenthood. Why not just come out and say you are against Planned Parenthood, not contraceptive, instead going around the bush.
    right, projecting and dishonesty. you got me, good job.

    despite your best efforts to make my position out to be deeply personal and/or irrational, the facts remain that Komen dollars would likely accomplish more toward the eradication of breast cancer if bestowed on an institution that gives research, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer higher priority than does PP, and the decision to re-designate funds is not necessarily a step back for women's health or a sleazy political ploy.

    The fund might be better used by other organisations to fight cancer, but that wasn't the justification given by the Komen Foundation. Judging from circumstantial evidence, the fund was withdrawn for political reasons. Read the previous page for this discussion. There's nothing wrong with an organisation making decisions base on politics, nor do I find to this particular decision to be "sleazy", it was simply stupid.
