The Pink campaign is getting too sophisticated and commercialized.No one
is going to be helped by t-shirts and water bottles. Pink soup cans and pens
are just faux concern for women by corporations looking for another way to sell
their products.And they were sucked into the abortion debate as a
result.I would much rather donate to a cause that isn't so full of
itself. Now is a good time to shop around for a different charity that
isn't so big and powerful.
@MoJules Do you know what percentage of planned parenthood work is
abortion and how much of it is preventive care such as cancer screenings? If not
you may want to do some research, if you do you may want to stop spreading false
I do not wish to support abortion clinics. Maybe planned parenthood should
split into two groups, the one group be the abortion and birth control, the
other be for breast cancer screening. Oh, one problem, the latter would not
have equipment and also very few people use this organization for this purpose.
How many millions of dollars must the public continue to poor down the
bottomless pit for cancer research? The more money that is spent, the less
likely a cure will ever be found. Why? Cancer of any kind is a cash cow. Those
seeking a cure really don't want one to be found, even if it were by
natural means. Why? Money. Prestige. Careers. Stability. How unfortunate that
money is the true basis behind finding a 'cure.' How sad that so many
have been hoodwinked into believing that a cure is what is being sought after. I
for one am disgusted by the fear mongering tactics that these organizations use
to soak up the money for 'research'. Think for a minute, what if all
the monies donated for cancer research were instead placed in a public account
and then those monies were distributed evenly to every household as a
private/public health care account, we wouldn't need obamacare. The money
would be there for ONLY health care issues. We would have the right to choose
our carrier and not the government. Frankly, it's refreshing to see people
opening their eyes and refusing to be duped.
I was a longtime supporter, but no more. Komen knew the importance of Planned
Parenthood's cancer screenings, and that federal funding does not go toward
abortions, but they still made a purely political decision that did nothing but
harm women. I just don't trust them any more.
To Cats | 11:47 a.m. 4/22I will not support any organizatio that
contributes to Planned Parenthood.------------------------If you wish to be that short-sighted, that is your right. However, you should
know that I (and the majority of women) support funding for Planned Parenthood
(low-cost cancer screening, family planning counseling, contraception, etc.,
etc., etc.). I will not support any organization that plays politics with
women's health by denying funding to Planned Parenthood.
A message for society and those in the political arena?Doesn't appear
that women "will go off quietly" any longer.
I will not support any organizatio that contributes to Planned Parenthood.
