    Wrong. Did Planned Parenthood not provide those services in 2008? No.

    Here's 2008: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/fil...2010-09-03.pdf



    Feel free to consult Komen's website.
    I didn't claim that they should be against oral contraceptives if they want to fight cancer, so no thanks to the goose chase. If they aren't, why should they have a double standard when it comes to Planned Parenthood?

    Planned Parenthood’s 3% lie Don Surber
    Learn the definition of what a lie means, and also a smear. That piece is a smear, that 3% of the services provided by planned parenthood is abortion is not a lie unless you claim their reports are false. That 10% of the people it served seek abortion does not contradict the fact that 3% of the services it provided is abortion.

    Re: Komen reverses move to cut Planned Parenthood funding

    the 3% is a.... well, it's an interesting accounting trick. If you go in, they do a check up, give you an abortion, and then hand you some counseling material, then you leave... they count that as three separate services, of which abortion only makes up 33%.

    what they don't do is provide mammograms. komen's original move was legit (especially given the whole "under investigation for shielding child sex traffickers" thing), and the hate-storm it inspired (their grant was less than the compensation of PP's president) was... well, indicative of the nature of the movement.

    NOW was particularly telling. Those seeking to cure breast cancer are "anti-Woman" if they don't give money to Planned Parenthood? please.

    Because this has nothing to do with breast cancer, it has everything to do wtih politically correct politics, I.E. Abortion. You are NOT allowed to diminish the power of Abortion by thought or deed.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    In reality, the ACS's website says that full term pregnancy increases breast cancer risk, so again, should SGK start funding abortions?

    I stated my thoughts. Their funding would be better spent for care for poor women for things that they can not perform on their own.

    No, I was asking about how your aborting experience was that you described in the post I responded to.
