Thanks, I plane on making my displeasure known and on giving double my usual donation to PP.

We participated in two walks in recent years (a daughter did the full walk, twice). I told them we would donate to PP directly in the future, under the category "improper conduct" in their comment/contact form.

I sent my donation to PP and signed the petition. I also emailed it to everyone I knew and put it on my Facebook page. Sent a strongly worded message to SGK as well. I am now rabidly and militantly pro-choice.

I'm sure you could send them a tweet or post on their facebook page as well.

An open letter about Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and Planned Parenthood


This year, as in the past, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is being criticized by some for funding a handful of women’s health programs run by, or with ties to, Planned Parenthood. I’m writing this letter to explain our position and to correct any misinformation you may have heard about this issue.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure exists for only one reason: to save lives and to end breast cancer forever. In the past 27 years, we’ve invested more than $1.3 billion to accomplish those goals through research and for programs that educate, screen and treat people in communities all around the world.

Early screening through mammograms and education are critical to end the suffering from this disease: 98 percent of women treated for early stage breast cancer, before it spreads, are alive five years later. The widespread use of mammography and heightened public awareness of breast cancer both contribute to these favorable statistics.

And while Komen Affiliates provide funds to pay for screening, education and treatment programs in dozens of communities, in some areas, the only place that poor, uninsured or under-insured women can receive these services are through programs run by Planned Parenthood.

These facilities serve rural women, poor women, Native American women, women of color, and the un- and under-insured. As part of our financial arrangements, we monitor our grantees twice a year to be sure they are spending the money in line with our agreements, and we are assured that Planned Parenthood uses these funds only for breast health education, screening and treatment programs.

As long as there is a need for health care for these women, we will continue to fund the facilities that meet that need.

re: #3 Naso Tang

I told them we would donate to PP directly in the future, under the category "improper conduct" in their comment/contact form.

I did the same. I told them that not only would all my future donations be re-routed to Planned Parenthood instead of SGK, but that I would no longer support their pink ribbon campaign and would encourage other women I know to boycott them as well.
