Susan G. Komen will never, ever, ever get another cent from me.
NEW YORK (AP) -- The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is halting its partnerships with Planned Parenthood affiliates - creating a bitter rift, linked to the abortion debate, between two iconic organizations that have assisted millions of women.
The change will mean a cutoff of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, mainly for breast exams.
Planned Parenthood says the move results from Komen bowing to pressure from anti-abortion activists. Komen says the key reason is that Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Congress - a probe launched by a conservative Republican who was urged to act by anti-abortion groups.
Komen has made it big. Pink on everything almost automatically means another penny in their pocket. They've pinked out everything possible, right down to the shoelaces on NFL player's cleats. Now they're desperate to protect their status, and instead of spreading out the funds to needy women they're emulating the very worst of this decade's philosophies: "Fuck the poor, research is for the rich."
So there you have it. In order to protect their precious market share the Komen foundation and cunts like Elizabeth Thompson have sold their sisters out. Now it's not about breast exams, not about preventing cancer when it's most curable, it's about their public image. Now that they won't have anything more to do with icky Planned Parenthood they can openly schmooze with the Pro-Life bunch, hold hands and skip merrily off into happy-pink land.
So, from WoS, here's a big fat FUCK YOU to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Fuck your bake sales, fuck your walk-a-thons, fuck your pink ribbons. You won't get a single cent from me AND I'm going to lecture and spread the news to every one of my friends that you fuckers are as shallow as a coat of pink nailpolish on a cheap hooker.
Cancer doesn't play politics, but apparently you do. So fuck you.
