    that when ideology conflicts with profit making opportunities for the right wing, profits always win out. Apparently, SGK's board of directors were dumb enough to think that they could eliminate Planned Parenthood funding to satisfy the anti-abortion idealogues and it would just fly under the radar, and wouldn't interfere with their corporate sponsors "pink ribbon branded" money making machine. Since the backlash from pro-choice supporters and women's health advocates threatened to upset their money making apple cart, they they are now trying to smooth things over by getting rid of Handel. Their efforts are a day late and a dollar short. SGK's brand name has already been damaged, but I'm delighted that PP has gotten some money and well deserved attention for all the OTHER things they do, like pap smears, mammograms, etc. Hopefully, the attention has let the uniformed Fox News viewing public know that Planned Parenthood does a lot more than just perform abortions.
