  •  The polite response is: "I don't care what (6+ / 0-)

    justifications you employ, I only care about the end result. Unless and until you restore funding to Planned Parenthood, I will not contribute to SGKF or participate in any of its fundraising activities, and I will discourage my friends and acquaintances from doing so."

    And it should be followed by the action weaponsofmassdeception set forth last night:

    ... a contribution to Planned Parenthood with request for gift card to be sent to Karen Handel, SGKF Senior VP.

      the founder of the organization, Karen Brinker, will still be at the helm and her choice of BOD members won't change.

      I believe the Walk is coming up soon and this is another example of how tone deaf right-wingers truly are.  From what I've read today, entire teams are defecting and Planned Parenthood is receiving donations which (according to HuffPo article) at 3:40 p.m. amounted to $400,000.

      When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin

      They are being vicious by hurting 10,000's of poor people. Never give money to Komen. It is run by right wing Texas Republicans who have decided to betray thousands of pro-choice supporters and ratchet up the divisions in America by hurting poor people. Let them fund their own damn organization. Let them go out of business.

        precisely where they are going. They started a firestorm and are about to be consumed by it. Our role is to throw gasoline on the fire.

        They could have kept this going forever, or until academic research that had nothing to do with discovered a  cure.  Their contempt for the people they profess to help betrayed them.
