Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood
Article: Why the right hates Planned Parenthood - Salon.com
First of all, Susan G. Komen is a corporation. They do what corporations do: make money, market their brand, curry favor among the powerful. So, people should consider that fact starting out. Next, as was clearly stated, the Komen Foundation has a Senior Vice President who is staunchly against Planned Parenthood. Plus, Komen has clearly caved into the right.
We now see how Komen has crossed over into becoming a political organization. So, anyone contributing to them, or interacting with them should know that they are joining an organization that is anti-abortion. And, in being against Planned Parenthood, they are also now anti-women's health. Irony? Yes.
