Tell the board of Susan G. Komen: Don't throw Planned Parenthood under the bus!

Please consider signing the attached petition to protest the actions of the Susan G. Komen organization. I find this very upsetting. Regardless of your political views, in my opinion, this is another attempt to Divide and Conquer Women and our rights to quality and educational health care. I can no longer support the Susan G Komen foundation and while I didn't now Susan, I find it impossible to believe this would have been her wish or her sister's wish.

Signed and shared.

I had a Komen postdoc fellowship as a postdoc for 3 years.

Signed and shared. I hope they changed their minds but in the meantime there are so many great runs, swims, rides, tri's, climbs .... that help the cause I think it'd be great if athletes send a copy of registration for other events, your rider number ... "Don't throw Planned Patenthood under the bus and I run!"

So just starting a list like this one for the Breast Cancer fund:

There are worthier breast cancer charities in any case IMO. Trek mentioned the Breast Cancer Fund. Breast Cancer Action is another one. Then we can donate directly to PP.

And you could swim and send a letter with your ear plugs.

I'm so angry about this I don't know what to do with myself.

Komen is the fund I have named in my will, they are the ones I donate to every year, I support others who do their runs/walks/races. No more.

I called my lawyer to have that section removed from my will, they will never see another dime from me. Politicizing women's health is reprehensible.
