Susan G. Komen Foundation Betrays Women for Right Wing GOP

The insanity of the GOP Republican Party + Evangelical Right Agenda against Women continues.

Shame on you Susan G. Komen Foundation ~ Planned Parenthood is a critical safety net for women across America and with so many of the middle class falling between the cracks into poverty, the role of Planned Parenthood in more important than ever.

…but apparently those women no longer matter as Komen’s support has now been withdrawn. Last month, the national office of the Komen Foundation, which maintains tight control over its state affiliates, sent a memo barring those affiliates from using money they had raised at the local level to partner with Planned Parenthood clinics in improving access to breast exams.

Why? Not science, not evidence, not concern for women.

Politics and personal ambition, pure and simple.

It’s no secret that anti-choice legislators at the state and national level have made Planned Parenthood the central focus of their anti-woman agenda, spending well over half of entire legislative sessions in some states focused on cutting funding and limiting access to reproductive health services.  At the national level, the ongoing witch hunt aimed at PPFA has taken many forms, one of which includes a “Congressional inquiry” launched by House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Chairman Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.).  Stearns sent a letter to PPFA in late September 2011 asking for an avalanche of documents to “investigate” whether PPFA has used federal funds to provide abortion services.

This isn’t about fiscal responsibility. This is about harassment and intimidation of America’s leading provider and advocate of women’s health. Stand with Planned Parenthood now: fill out the form to send Rep. Stearns a letter telling him to stop this politically motivated investigation.
