I don't believe this leopard so suddenly changes its spots. I was asked to do some probono work for this group about 10 years ago. I wouldn't do it.

You know the best part about you, Adam Wayne? You're like clockwork. I've always admired people that are predictable and don't let facts get in the way of their opinions. Stick to your guns, Wayne, no matter how wrong they are. Keep it up man. You're doing great.

To everyone else: Komen changed their views on life issues when they got a new Senior Vice President who pledged to get out of the abortion business. It's not a marketing ploy, it's a real philosophical shift. Komen hired her despite knowing her public stance to defund Komen.

Quote:New Komen Pro-Life VP Credited for Planned Parenthood Cuts
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 1/31/12 7:57 PM

The decision by the Komen for the Cure breast cancer group to stop funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business is making huge waves today and a little known decision to hire a pro-life vice president may be responsible for it.

In 2010 Georgia Republican Secretary of State Karen Handel decided to run for governor to replace outgoing pro-life Governor Sonny Perdue, who was term limited, on a platform of defunding Planned Parenthood.

“I am staunchly and unequivocally pro-life. I believe in the sanctity and inherent dignity of human life, and I will be a pro-life governor who will work tirelessly to promote a culture of life in Georgia,” Handel said. “I believe that each and every unborn child has inherent dignity, that every abortion is a tragedy, and that government has a role, along with the faith community, in encouraging women to choose life in even the most difficult of circumstances…. since I am pro-life, I do not support the mission of Planned Parenthood.”

Pressing for Planned Parenthood de-funding, Handel said, “During my time as Chairman of Fulton County, there were federal and state pass-through grants that were awarded to Planned Parenthood for breast and cervical cancer screening, as well as a ‘Healthy Babies Initiative’…Since grants like these are from the state I’ll eliminate them as your next Governor.”

Ironically, Georgia Right to Life refused to extend to Handel its endorsement — instead going with five of the other candidates seeking the nomination against her. Dan Becker, the Georgia Right to Life president who is a key leader in the personhood movement, told LifeNews at the time that “Handel proclaims herself pro-life; however, she does not meet the 21st century demands of being pro-life.”

Despite that, Handel received the endorsement of pro-life former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin and some pro-life advocates criticized GRTL for its decision.

After her loss in the 2010 GOP primary, Handel moved on to other things and, eventually, in April 2011, was named Senior VP for Komen.

“In her role at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Handel will be responsible for leading the organization’s federal and state advocacy efforts, including management of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Advocacy Alliance. Handel has been working with Komen as a consultant for advocacy since January,” Komen said at the time.

The pro-abortion side definitely thinks Handel’s involvement has something to do with the decision.

“Komen’s new Senior Vice President of Public Policy, Karen Handel, not only has a long anti-choice history, but pledged to eliminate grants for Planned Parenthood to provide breast and cervical cancer screenings when she ran for governor of Georgia in 2010,” complains ThinkProgress.

While Jezebel adds, “Karen Handel, who was endorsed by Sarah Palin during her unsuccessful bid for governor of Georgia in 2010, has been the Foundation’s Senior Vice President for Public Policy since April 2011. During her gubernatorial candidacy, she ran on an anti-choice platform, vowing that if elected, she’d defund Planned Parenthood.”

“How curious! A person with what looks like a personal vendetta against Planned Parenthood joins the ranks of an organization that provides funding to Planned Parenthood, and soon, that organization “defunds” Planned Parenthood,” it adds.

Money talks and donations to Komen are up 100% since the announcement. The bad news is Planned Parenthood also received record breaking donations after this news. The vitriol on Facebook is incredible. A City Counselor at the city that I grew up in is on the rampage saying things like "Go to Hell Susan Komen."

Then some supposed State Rep. posted a message about how he ran as a pro choice Republican against 2 pro life Democrats and when his family found out he was pro choice they said they were sorry they gave him any money and support for his candidacy but now he is worth over a million dollars so everything worked out for him. So I answered him back saying, "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but to lose his soul?"

These people are just satanic.

Yes, you are right WRC. It appears that my cynical view was way too optimistic.

Peter has the story, post directly above.

What a sad state of affairs when Catholics get all excited about this "change" in philosophy at a charity.  As if it is some kind of Pro-Life victory!!!

I think it is time for Pro-Life to get a life. At least we were spared the embarrassment of having to see Fr. Pavone kissing the pink ring at the Komen Foundation. Good thing he is still in the cooler.

But, you are quite the putz, WRC.  One time post since the drama is changing by the minute.

See you in Eastertide. 

p.s. Nancy Brinker and her sister Susan Komen, must have come from the only Jewish family in all of Peoria.

Well, the lady who was behind the short lived policy has resigned.

It lasted 3 days. Great free publicity and donation spikes for Planned Parenthood and Komen.

3 days in the tomb. Sounds familiar.

Welcome to the brave new world where the ressurection, (small 'r' for us, probably captital 'r' for them) of Planned Parenthood takes place. A dark world where it becomes more apparent by the day, that they have destroyed Christendom.

But, don't forget, if you plan on making the pilgramage to DC, to protest abortion, or the latest saga involving Obamacare, to please wear flowers in your hair.

Cue that tune from the summer of love written for those on the way to San Francisco.

But it seems we have raised a conservative movement in the Church that is nothing more than Pro-Life Activism.

I'm home sick today with half my children. Can't pray the Breviary and found myself rather bored.
