    Nah, we have the opposition to stem cell research, etc, etc, so we are losing ground to the rest of the world in health care thanks to Republican opposition to anything that doesn’t line the pockets of the 1% with cash.

    The 1% can fly to Britain for the care (secretly) nudge,nudge,wink,wink,know what I mean!

    The limit on stem cell research, and cutting the funding, was a true abomination indeed. Saving eggs is more important than saving lives. The foundation DID back pedal this morning so hard I think Lance Armstrong’s hamstrings were pulled by their blowback!!

    This, unfortunately, isn’t over.

    More than 50% of the country want abortion stopped. Planned Parenthood is in the abortion business. So, many people don’t want tax dollars or their donations to go for abortions. Pretty easy to understand. Komen made the mistake of doing the right thing and then reversing it due to pressure from the loud minority. Komen will lose support over backing down. Someday we will look back and wonder how we could have ever killed babies.

    WRONG: NO Federal tax dollars go to support abortions. The Hyde Amendment guaranteed that.
    WRONG: Komen did NOT do the right thing; they followed a deliberately political policy (led by a Bush drone and advised by a former Bush Administration member) and removed funding from an organization which spends 3% on abortions and the rest on supporting women’s health — especially those who have no money.
    WRONG: “the loud minority?” Try the loud MAJORITY! PP immediately got millions in support, including from Mayor Bloomberg. By the way, did you know PP was funded by Nixon and GHW Bush? Did you know that Goldwater’s wife FOUNDED the Arizona chapter of PP? Of course not.
    Learn the facts.

    This is just a silly remark.

    I can tell that your intentions are good, but you miss the deeper point. First, only about 3% of Planned Parenthood activity involves abortion. One may object to this on ideological grounds, but the fact is, that much more good is accomplished through the counselling and health services provided by that organization. Overall, it supports life, it supports quality of life (which is quite important, but often ignored by “right to lifers”). I would also disagree with your “more than 50%” quote. I think there are many of us (including me) that would not chose abortion under normal circumstances, but we don’t support forcing that choice on others. There may be moral issues with it, but they are personal and people who have abortions are the ones that will look back on it and wonder if it was right later in life. PP counselling helps avoid many abortions, a fact that isn’t well publicized. Also, if society makes abortion illegal, women will get them anyway through illegal outlets that create even more death than legalized abortions.

    @gbrucewilson and the rest: there are more abortions in countries with governments that ban abortions. It is a fact.Koman’s board of right-wing nincompoops wrongly decided that their political agenda was more important than the health and well-being of millions of women who rely, on a monthly basis, for their health care from Planned Parenthood. So millions of Americans fought back instantly, with their money, support, and thru social media to send a message that was undeniable: the subjugation of women for political gain will not be tolerated anymore. And the fact that this woman who started it all is a failed politician from GA who makes a six-figure salary doing so makes it all the more heinous.

    @Tom – “First, only about 3% of Planned Parenthood activity involves abortion.”

    What do the spend the rest of ‘their’ (donated and tax) money on, then? Lobbying?

    It is established that Planned Parenthood doesn’t do mammograms. Do they do anything breast-cancer related?

    komen is hardly a charity. only a tiny percentage of what they took in goes to breast cancer research. Planned parenthood made out like a bandit. they brought in 3 million in two days in contributions from people outratgged at komen, dwarfing what komen held back.

    then and only then did komen do THE RIGHT THING and reversed their decision and said they’d give the grant to planned parenthood after all. Ihope komen does not survive. they sue “competing” charities that also try fo find a cure for breast cancer.

    digusting people.

    in the meantime Planned parenthood will continue to provide comprehensive health care to women, thereby PREVENTING abortioins through contraceptives education and providing ESSENTIAL ABORTIONS to women who need them.

    God bless planned parenthood.
    God bless abortion doctors and the essential, lifesaving work they do.
    God bless Obama
    God bless the USA.

    What I find ironic about the compulsary-pregnancy bunch (AKA right-to-lifers) is that so many of them are also stridently opposed to birth control. Apparently the logic of cause and effect cannot penetrate their shuttered minds.

    And that so, so many of them bemoan and wail about government intrusion – yet are perfectly happy to suggest that said government refuse to recognize that women have the right to control their own bodies, even unto the often-stated belief that victims of rape or incest should be forced to continue pregnancies caused by such outrages.

    Only about 8% of Americans would ban abortion under any circumstances. Around 23% would allow abortion only with severe constraints, variable reasons, like rape, incest, health of mother, etc. It is only the "extremist’ religionists who have the narrowest view, and least degree of informed judgment on the matter. The vast majority in Pew and other polls, are against making abortion illegal, but DO HAVE concerns, as in providing contraception, and not making it the “primary means” of birth control.

    The projection by “religionists” of those supporting women’s right to chose as some sort of fetus drooling vampires, is as absurd as their argument for making women the PROPERTY OF MEN! THAT is the “biblical guidance” touted in repressive societies basing their argument on a book of myths. When MEN get pregnant, or get eaten by a giant “fish”, living inside for three days, then emerging unscathed, minds on either side MAY be swayed.
