Well, that was certainly quick. No sooner had Susan G. Komen for the Cure cut funding to Planned Parenthood than the brow-beaten organization reversed course. What happened?
“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,” a Komen statement said.
Komen said it would change the criteria “to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political.”How ironic that Komen would provide the world's foremost abortion proponent--perhaps provider as well--with funding in order to save women's lives. Though Planned Parenthood isn't exclusively to blame to blame for the estimate--to paraphrase Victor Laszlo, even it can't kill that fast--the world is missing 163 million girls and women who were aborted over the past three decades.
Perhaps Komen's group hadn't heard about gendercide. In a 2011 book entitled "Unnatural Selection," Mara Hvistendahl explains how it came about that 112 boys are born for every 100 girls worldwide, even though the biologically ironclad ratio is 105 to 100 in nature.
Western actors like the Ford Foundation, the United Nations and Planned Parenthood... pushed sex-selective abortion as a means of controlling population growth. In 1976, for instance, the medical director of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Malcom Potts, wrote that, when it came to developing nations, abortion was even better than birth control: "Early abortion is safe, effective, cheap and potentially the easiest method to administer."On the question of whether Planned Parenthood is investigation free, you might enjoy this video of Lila Rose and Laura Ingraham discussing revelations about the organization with community organizer, Sally Kohn. If that whets your appetite, perform a Google or YouTube search on "Planned Parenthood sting" to see some of the various criminal activities that the government gives PP a free pass on.
Back to the Komen group's recent loss of nerve, Planned Parenthood was mad that it was losing funding. The denunciations and website hackings commenced--fast and furiously as Attorney General Eric Holder might not say.
James Taranto captured what happened pretty well, I think.
Planned Parenthood's bitter campaign against Komen--aided by left-liberal activists and media--is analogous to a protection racket: Nice charity you've got there. It'd be a shame if anything happened to it. The message to other Planned Parenthood donors is that if they don't play nice and keep coughing up the cash, they'll get the Komen treatment.
There's one crucial difference, however. In a real-life protection racket, the victim never pays voluntarily. The threat is present from the get-go. By contrast, Komen presumably was not under any duress when it made its grants--and it could have avoided all this nasty publicity by never dealing with Planned Parenthood in the first place.
Thus smart prospective donors--especially ones that are apolitical, like Komen--are getting the message that supporting Planned Parenthood is a trap. Give once, and you will give again--or else you will pay.
Forewarned is forearmed. Here's to praying that Planned Parenthood's strong-arm victory is Pyrrhic.
Before ending this post, I should mention that there is lots of evidence--suppressed evidence, just like evidence against global warming; Hark, I detect a pattern--linking breast cancer to abortion. That's what makes all of this especially noxious. An organization dedicated to eradicating breast cancer is funding a cause of breast cancer. Go figure.
How much hypocrisy and deceit can a good noman take? Regardless, ideological women (aka, feminists) have a seemingly infinite capacity for dishing it out.
