… Breaking News: Koman reverses decision on Planned Parenthood grants
A short lived victory with an utterly disappointing and predictable end.
Why, SGK Foundation, why? You should have stuck to your guns. You’ve lost all credibility now. Neither side will ever trust you again. It’s a shame, really. You did do legitimate good. Alas, no more.
However, my thinking falls along the same lines as Elizabeth Scalia’s. We share the same suspicions.
She notes; “This Komen/PP story is really interesting — regardless of whether some are arguing that Komen is caving while others say they’re being clever — the big story here is the tag-teaming of press and government to quickly destroy anyone who dares try to leave their plantation. The vehemence of the press and Sens. Boxer and Murray yesterday was almost rabid.
They used Komen as an example and sent a profound message: don’t go against us, or you’re dead. This is institutional aggression that cannot bode well for us. This is bullying meant to frighten, intimidate and finally silence. ”
SGK donated just a little over half a million a year annually to PP, their funding was a pittance in comparison to the millions pledged annually from other sources. Oh, and then there’s the THREE MILLION in donations they’ve collected since they leaked the story of being “defunded” by those big bad meanies at SGK.
In the meantime, I bet they’re hoping we forgot about the HHS’s assault on Catholic’s religious freedoms. We haven’t. SIGN THE PETITION.
