The Komen Foundation should be ashamed of itself. Bowing to the religious right and their commando tactics. It seems that Komen has joined in the assault on women that they vowed to care for. Hand in hand with the religious right, they now advocate denying women birth control, mammograms, and health care to indigent women. A real gang buster of a plan. Women against women. They say PP in under investigation….by the Right Wing!!! That should have told them something.
Then again, this will end the pink everything campaign year after year. Like their Right Wing enablers they make millions and millions of dollars. Pink everything. Komen is simply now a corporation that thinks it is a person. It has forgotten its mission. Saving women’s lives. They are in the business of collecting money which they say goes for cancer research. Do we really know that. If so how much and can it be proved. It could be in the end that Planned Parenthood win. Pink sinks.
It is hysterical how Republicans pretend to be pro-life, but promote pro-death policies. I know that I have said this before, and risking repeating myself, I intend to do it. Republicans, Right Wingers, Religious Righters all suck. No, No that is not what I mean to say. I need to stop before I go on this tangent about how Nixon won the Presidency by promising to make the streets safe, but really meant he would get rid of blacks and poor people, including women and children. But I need to get back to this post and get the deadline for this on time. What I was going to repeat is this….Republicans, the Religious Right, the Right-to-lifers only care if the child is unborn. Once they out of the womb they don’t care. It costs them money. If they care so much, then they should be in the business of adopting every child and as many as they can from women who do not want them, or have been raped, or whose unborn child is deformed or whatever the reason. They support children that fall under one title or category…..UNBORN/ABORTION! Pink has now become the new yellow.
Komen is about making money not “race for the cure.” Trademark is of great importance and they will sue you at every given opportunity. Komen has joined the neo-fascists Republicans and are march in step with them. Every women should remember this at election time. Every woman should be reminded every time she sees something pink to go to the polls on election day. This is the Christian Taliban hard at work.
Women should not need to be reminded of risks they were forced to take before Roe v. Wade. Do we really want to go back there?
“Many, many years ago, I had a dear, close family relative that was very close to me, that passed away from an illegal abortion. It is since that time my mother and my family have been committed to the belief that we can believe as we want, but we will not force our beliefs on others on that matter, and you will not see me wavering on that.”
Romney’s relative was a 21-year-old named Ann Keenan. The sister of Romney’s brother-in-law, Keenan died in 1963 from an infection following what her death certificate described as a “septic criminal recent abortion.” Her parents directed that “Memorial tributes may be sent to the Planned Parenthood Association.“ Although many of the details of Keenan’s death are unknown, the story offers a terrible reminder of the risks women were forced to take before Roe v. Wade.
The above quote was made by Mitt Romney during a 1994 debate with Sen. Ted Kennedy [D-Mass].
Do we really want to return to the back street abortion mills where everyone dies? When did these politicians lose their minds and find God? Or have they just lost both, their minds and God?
I am going now to scrape off the pink ribbon from my car.
