Do NOT Mess with Planned Parenthood

Susan G. Komen almost cut off funding to Planned Parenthood. They relented under enormous pressure. But that's not good enough for pro-abortion Catholic Joe Biden who's turning his back on Komen.

And while Biden sometimes says things on his own, be assured that he's not acting on his own here.

The Daily Beast reports:
As the Susan G. Komen foundation gears up for its most high-profile event of the year, its Global Race for the Cure in Washington, Vice President Joe Biden will not be hosting a kickoff barbecue for the annual D.C. race, as he and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, have done in previous years.

Meanwhile, U.S. Congressman Mike Honda, who formed a team for the race last year that raised more than $10,000—making him the top fundraiser on Capitol Hill—told The Daily Beast that he will not be participating this year, linking the decision to Komen’s move to cut funds to Planned Parenthood earlier this year amid pressure from Catholic bishops.

The Komen foundation quickly reversed its Planned Parenthood decision amid a backlash, but it has struggled since then, with some Komen affiliates around the country reporting declines in participants at spring races and other fundraising events.

The Bidens cited a scheduling conflict for their decision not to host the kickoff for the June 2 event.

Rep. Honda’s office was critical of Komen, saying that while the congressman “supports the Susan G. Komen foundation’s vital work,” he also “believes that Komen must act to rebuild trust with all its partners,” according to communications director Jack d’Annibale. “Komen must act to ensure its work benefits all women. Congressman Honda was the first member of Congress to call on Komen to reverse its Planned Parenthood decision, and he will remain vigilant for any attempt to use partisan politics to derail the urgent mission to defeat cancer and protect the health of women everywhere,” d’Annibale said.
Think about this. Republicans are waging a war on women? The White House is refusing to support breast cancer research because they threatened not paying homage to Planned Parenthood. Think about how sick that is for a moment.

Killing babies is the highest priority for these people.

  1. And Komen is the big loser in this one, because they're losing pro-abortion and pro-life support. They should have stuck to their guns!

  2. Komen has been from the first a supporter of Planned parenthood and when it was learned, many people felt betrayed. The annual run for the cure was cancelled at our church when it was learned that Komen gave money to abort babies.

  3. As a (501)3c non-profit Komen ought to have put that information out there but it steadfastly refused, until it was forced by the court.

  4. My thesis is that there is a crony capitalist relationship between Planned Parenthood and this administration. Not to quote my own, but I will: see this post and its two predecessors embedded therein and see if you don't agree.

  5. The blogging platform LiveJournal is currently hosting a "Stand with Planned Parenthood" fundraiser event (The information is on their homepage)

    And unsurprisingly, there is a war in the comments of the announcement between the pro-PP and anti-PP sides. Which I must say, the pro-PP side just keeps telling the anti-PP side to shut up in profanity laced buzz-speeches.

  6. Komen = Vichy France; PP = SS (Godwin's Law invoked).

    Never negotiate with terrorists - let alone terrorists who build death chambers.

  7. Innocent blood is the currency demanded by the prince of this world in exchange for power in his realm. PP collects the payments. It is their church.

  8. Komen were frankly stupid. If they had stuck to one side or other, they would be safe, but after going pro-life, and siding with the majority of Americans (not completely, they still were funding Planned Parenthood), they backtracked. I hope their move destroys them as an organization.

  10. And this is why Nemesis is depicted as having wings: karmic turnaround in record time.

    If Komen hadn't caved to Planned Parenthood, the conservative movement would've backed them to the hilt—and conservatives give more to charity.

    But they caved, and they have to take their punishment.

  11. The fact that Joe Biden is 2nd in line for the presidency makes me weep for America.

  12. Never play around with the demonic.

  13. I find it kind of funny that they first protest because Komen will not give Planned Parenthood they deserve but when Komen caves, they still feel like they have to punish them still. Keep punishing them so that they really and truly realize how wrong they were to cross them. It is a sad situation.

  14. And, ironically, the reason I *don't* support the Komen Foundation is because of their support of Big Abortion. For Komen, it's a lose-lose.
