    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.

    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 impressions.

    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.

    I 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.
