The Pink Ribbon Joins the Republican War on Women

The Susan G. Komen foundation has pulled its funding from Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is often the only provider of health care services for low-income and underserved women. Komen’s support for Planned Parenthood has provided nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams and referrals for more than 6,400 mammograms in just the last 5 years. These cancer detection and prevention programs save lives, plain and simple.   Pressure from congressional conservatives and right wing anti-choice extremists is no excuse to stop saving the lives of poor American women.  Unless Komen foundation only supports a cure for "right" thinking individuals.  Is the Komen Foundation fighting breast cancer or advancing an extremist anti-choice viewpoint and enlisting in the republican war on women?  Our family has supported the Komen foundation for as long as I can remember, but no longer unless they change their stance. 

Fuse has a petition, tell the Komen foundation you stand with Planned Parenthood
