The Susan G. Komen Foundation recently withdrew their charitable support for Planned Parenthood. It’s a transparently political move that is both deplorable and not the least bit surprising.
Come on, folks. Have we already forgotten Buckets for the Cure? Seriously, those helmet haired humanitarians in charge of the Komen Foundation lost their way the second they thought it would be a good idea to raise breast cancer awareness with pink buckets of KFC chicken.
Of course, some good is coming out of their right-wing, anti-choice, red-state wrong-headedness, because almost half a million dollars has been donated directly to Planned Parenthood in the past twenty-four hours alone.
If you can, please donate.

It’s unfortunate that in the end, despite the overwhelming amount of support in the midst of this, it’s the women that potentially have breast cancer who suffer. It a shame that at the end of the day it can’t just be about helping solve a problem, the best way possible.
