In case you missed the happy news…

The Susan G Komen Foundation has pulled their funding to Planned Parenthood. It’s not like Planned Parenthood provides breast cancer screening or mammograms, so what exactly has Komen been funding all this time? Well, at least they are no longer doing it now.

More in the morning.

    Hurray! My mother in law is a breast cancer survivor, and has always asked us to NOT buy anything with a pink ribbon on it that is from the Komen Foundation.  This is excellent news.  Now can we work on getting rid of the “Save the Boobies” t shirts and bumper stickers?

    • Alexandra Molnar-Suhajda

      Yes, ditto on the save the boobies and ta-tas merch! It’s so vulgar!

    > will only remain in effect if the Congressional investigation into PP


    > against PP. If the investigation rules in PP’s favor, Komen will resume

    > funding of PP.
