Susan G. Komen: Shilling for Big Abortion

Now that the breast cancer bosses at the Susan G. Komen Foundation have collapsed under the insidious pressure placed on them by the Big Abortion lobby of the oh so tolerant Left, I offer up some summarizing thoughts on this ugly liberal gang bang by Mark Steyn, political commentator extraordinaire.  Apparently, it’s a Pro-Choice world for everyone except those who choose other than the progressive party line.

Komen was a generous patron of Planned Parenthood, the “women’s health” organization. The Foundation then decided it preferred to focus on organizations that are “providing the lifesaving mammogram.” Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms, despite its president, Cecile Richards, testifying to the contrary before Congress last year. Rather, Planned Parenthood provides abortions; it’s the biggest abortion provider in the United States. For the breast cancer bigwigs to wish to target their grants more relevantly is surely understandable.

But not if you’re a liberal enforcer.  Sen. Barbara Boxer, with characteristic understatement, compared the Komen Foundation’s Nancy Brinker to Joe McCarthy: “I’m reminded of the McCarthy era, where somebody said: ‘Oh,’ a congressman stands up, a senator, ‘I’m investigating this organization and therefore people should stop funding them.'” But Komen is not a congressman or a senator or any other part of the government, only a private organization. And therefore it is free to give its money to whomever it wishes, isn’t it?  Dream on.

Komen could not be permitted to get away with disrespecting Big Abortion. We don’t want to return to the bad old days of the back alley, when a poor vulnerable person who made the mistake of stepping out of line had to be forced into the shadows and have the realities explained to them with a tire iron. Now Big Liberalism’s enforcers do it on the front pages with the panjandrums of tolerance and diversity cheering them all the way.

After 72 hours being fitted for the liberals’ cement overcoat and an honored place as the cornerstone of the Planned Parenthood Monument to Women’s Choice, Komen attempted to chisel free and back into the good graces of the tolerant: As Nancy Brinker’s statement groveled, “We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women’s lives.”

Congratulations! Planned Parenthood certainly raised Nancy’s awareness. I wonder what color ribbon that comes with?  Black and blue?  Orange County Register

Cecile Richards, the white woman who runs Planned Parenthood, makes approximately $400,000 a year not counting benefits.  And other top executives at this abortion mill make over $250,000 a year. Ka-Ching! Ka-Ching!  Yep, sucking fetuses out of women’s wombs is a nice little racket for these non-profit entrepreneurs.

But we must not forget that these highly paid white women at Planned Parenthood, who are clearly some of the privileged few inhabiting that Occupy demon division known as The One Percent, aren’t in it for the money.  Certainly not.  They’re altruistically providing a needed service to all those poor Women of Color that we keep hearing so much about.  Interesting though that an organization founded by a racist white middle-class lady by the name of Margaret Sanger, who believed that African-Americans were “socially undesirable people” whose numbers needed to be decreased by all means possible, is still basically run by a bunch of we-know-best middle-class white women condescendingly caring for poor minorities by ‘mercifully’ exterminating their unborn offspring, and I might add, making a damn good living out of it to boot!

Ah, the labyrinthine motivations of American liberalism.

  1. While I’m not a fan of Planned Parenthood for their abortion, I do know that the group does a lot of good for the poor. Three of my best female friends wouldn’t be able to afford health check-ups or birth control without them. And two of the three only go to Planned Parenthood locations that don’t do abortions.

    However this just makes me sick. Forcing a PRIVATE organization to give you money through temper tantrums and lies. Right, how DARE a private company decide to spend their money in the way they believe is ethical. All that matters is if they tow the politically correct line.

    This is a letter was in the Denver Post’s Op-Ed page this morning. It is from a truly brainwashed woman from Centennial, Colorado, a Denver suburb. It is really amazing that she found it in her heart to take yet another stab at Sarah Palin, whose character assassination by the Liberals will only come back to haunt them.

    “Even though Komen has backed down, I doubt they will be looked at in the same way. Even if I were in a position to give them money, I would not. They have tarnished their image, and I would doubt there is a rag big enough to get rid of all the dirt.
    It is reasonable to wonder if any of Komen’s money is covertly funneled to the Republican Party since their willingness to jeopardize women’s health is at odds with their purported mission, but mirrors the Republican Party’s odd crusade against women and those that provide them help.
    Women today are fighting for their rights and, as a result, one woman, I imagine, can clearly see the Dark Ages from her porch.”
    Suzanne Langland, Centennial

    It is beyond me that women want to be the responsible party for the abortion barbarianism. Face it; they really want to be men (to men’s approval). Isn’t that why we are all “guys” now? I may be a lesbian, but I’m happy being female and “one of the girls”.

    • Ms. Langland is a silly liberal who equates Planned Parenthood and abortion with ‘women’s rights’. As long as Planned Parenthood is getting taxpayer dollars (50% of their revenues) to perform abortions, these ‘women’s rights’ are being paid for on our dime. And instead of talking about ‘women’s rights, it’s high time we started talking about women’s RESPONSIBILITIES.

      And to your point, Perry….how come these women who seek out PP for abortions (at about $500 a pop), can’t seem to find their way there to pick up some birth control? This is women’s liberation?

  3. GT says:

    As a pro baby birth black male, I’ve always found it striking how the black female is the least criticized group in terms of their behavior and the natural consequences it yields. Even Muslims, the group that most elites and the politically correct will shy away from when offered an open mike and a chance to offer sincere and truthful commentaries (mercy killings, Sharia law, terrorist profiles) will lob a token rebuke before they ever say anything truthfully negative about the black female.

    I’m bemused at how the white lights of condemnation fall on the abortion providers (whom I abhor personally) rather than the black female who offers up her unborn for death. With patches, IUDs, the pill, TMA pills and drop off at local Fire department as legal practices for dumping the unwanted baby, she still gets knocked up at a higher rate than the general female population and has way more Planned Baby Death visits than any other demographic.

    Scrutiny? Rebuke? Condemnation? Insectus Cricketus.

    Supply and demand people. If the demand to kill the kids legally didn’t exist, then neither would Planned Auschwitz for Babies.

    • Your point is well taken. Ultimately, the responsibility for any abortion is with the woman who is seeking it. And for those women hoping for advice or counseling, they won’t find it at Planned Parenthood–they don’t present options to women, they present abortion, it’s their big money maker. And as James O’Keefe’s sting operations have shown, they could care less about the women who come to them. What they care about is their ideology of population control and the curtailment of the breeding of the lower classes.

      You’ve hit on a taboo topic, but you are correct.

  4. Gutsy says:

    Both Mark Steyn’s and your commentary have illustrated yet another dark corner of our “culture.” It now seems taken for granted that Organized Abortion is the secular Left’s equivalent of organized religion. To question the absurdity of abortion as women’s “health care” in the same league as the genuine threat as breast cancer is now seemingly beyond the pale . We live in dark times.

  5. Sharon says:

    This makes me so fucking mad I have to leave the iOS and go take some deep breathing someplace. Oh, very good blog, and quoting Steyn — sums it all up quite well.

  6. Perry Palmer says:

    I am a runner and I used to run in the Komen Runs for the Cure. I found that there is too much money to be made selling pink tee-shirts, ball caps and ribbons. I won’t buy any pink item that has a ribbon on it. Komen, I think started out with its heart in the right place, but saw how much could be made with the pink hype that the foundation lost its way. With the amount of money Komen Foundation has had donated, a cure for cancer would have been found. The whole thing makes me think that, what would happen to all the foundations if cures were really found? It’s kind of like the computer virus scanner that is the virus.

    • You are so right–these outfits have become big business for a handful of enterprising folks. They make a fortune selling all the schlock and paraphernalia and they’re also selling a sense of hope, community, and pro-active control. And I think that’s a good thing, but sadly, as you said, it’s turned into a racket where running for the cure seems to be a road without end.

  7. Perry Palmer says:

    I can’t help but think sometimes that men are really the ones behind the “feminist movement”. Convincing women that all the sex you can possibly have is a good thing. It’s the same as “all the food you can eat” is a good thing; all the booze you can drink is a good thing. When women held the reins in sex, due to consequences, men had manners, were considerate and maybe had other interests. But in this “anything goes” world where sex is the number one topic and Viagra and Cialas are advertised in the sports pages and sporting contests, as in Score, Score, Score, men and women have become so sexed out that sex availability has warped the human spirit to the point of a real lack of caring about anything except the next orgasm.

    Heterosexuals have been so insanely jealous of the gay lifestyle (sex without consequence) that now that they have it, there are no manners, no kindness, no consideration, just “me, me, me and my greed and pleasure”. Heterosexuals look like slobs who don’t care.

    I’ve known I was “different” since I was about eight years old; that difference was I was and still am a lesbian. When you’re watching the goings-on in the heterosexual world from this side, you can see what gigantic mistakes they are making. Straight women are now acting just like men; even saying “they are spreading their wild oats”. Women don’t have wild oats to spread.

    Planned Parenthood aborts babies with the guise of being so helpful to women. They should be called, “Barbarians to Go”. What’s really sad is that women are the ones that want to be so proud in the fact that they call it women’s health. Baloney!

    I’ve said this before, “You can judge a society by the way it treats its animals.” attributed to Ghandi and others. Isn’t that rich? Why can’t we judge a society by the way it treats its unborn humans? If animals were treated the way many societies treat unborn babies, the protests wouldn’t end.

    If my gay friends read this, they would call me a traitor; but really they are Barbarians, too.

    • Well said, Perry. The sexual devolution has turned women into promiscuous drones with no genuine respect for their bodies or their babies. And sex is never without consequences, whether it be hetero or homo: the more aimless the sexual encounters, the more emotional/psychic damage, and the more vulnerable we become to every exotic sexual disease that nature can devise.

      And since the Komen Foundation only gives anywhere from 20% to 30% of its revenues to actual cancer research, I hope this controversy plunges them into financial irrelevance.

    • Gutsy says:

      Perry’s comments ( on the mark!) remind me of what one male reviewer said of “Sex in the City”: that it clearly was written by heterosexual guys who made the female characters talk like horny heterosexual guys; that women don’t naturally talk like guys in a HS or college locker-room.
