Susan G. Komen's VP Indicates Her Real Motives In Awful Twitter Retweet

Karen Handel, a former GOP candidate who ran on a pro-life platform, shows her true colors. She just happens to be Susan G. Komenís Vice President of Public Policy now.



Planned Parenthood offers cancer screenings as a significant portion of its services. Taking away funding for those services leaves not only Planned Parenthood vulnerable, but the women who rely on them. Susan G. Komenís official story is that the defunding is non-political, but what their Vice President retweeted tells a different story. Share this if you think so, too.

the blatantly politically-motivated decision of Komen was the attack.

Because both Brinker and Handel are destroying what Komen represents.

I don't think Susan G. Komen likes her name being abused in name of politics. Republican politics.

44. You do know Susan G. Komen died in 1980, right?

And Brinker, her SISTER, created the Foundation to honor her memory, and help stop breast cancer.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_G._Komen

Susan Goodman, later Susan Goodman Komen, was born in 1943 in Peoria, Illinois. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33. She died of the disease at age 36 in 1980. Komen's younger sister, Republican Ambassador Nancy Goodman Brinker, who believed that Susan's outcome might have been better if patients knew more about cancer and its treatment, promised her sister that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer. To fulfill that promise, Brinker founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in Komen's memory in 1982

to start support Planned Parenthood. Without the everyday people the organization will die. The republicans are trying to kill this organization. We must start defending womens issues. These issues will effect our granddaughters. If these republicans have their way they will take even your right to have any type of birth control away.

5. United Way Contributions Can Be Directed to Planned Parenthood - Some May Not Know That

I deliver my annual UW contribution to PP using this convenient payroll deduction method and supplement it with other donations. I made an additional contribution when the fight with Indiana threatened PP funding and will do so again now that SGK has terminated funding. I have never contributed to the SGK organization so I can't terminate any donations but I'm sure many will. How did they not understand their position on this would cost them dearly from both a financial and reputational perspective. They start this damn fight and then accuse PP of making political hay out of it. What idiots.

I know many women who have participated in that event. They are all educated, pro-choice women. I imagine that a majority of the walkers and runners feel similarly. Yeah, they can continue doing it with conservatives and apolitical types, but their numbers will drop dramatically, I'm guessing.

How about CLIF? ie CLIF and Luna Bars? They already give money to women's health charities, are a huge name, and also are not controversial in any way (that I know of).

I am sure that their loss in the organization will be someone's gain.

The only positive thing I see from this scandal is finding out 'other' organizations out there, similar to SGK, without the corporate machinery in high gear; willing to sell their soul for monetary gain.

It won't even take a backtrack. A few months down the road when the foundation gets assistance from any company that doesn't openly hate women, gays, and birth control Fox will do a "story" that exposes it, and that lot will lose their minds and abandon them immediately. Even if it's just a rumor or completely nonsensical, the effect will be the same.

23. They have a lot of money, and so they work to control its flow. That's what they can do.

Just like the catholic church taking over fucking hospitals and denying access to anything they don't like. They don't have constitutional authority to deny us, just yet, though they're working on that too. In the meantime, they can just corner the market on all the outlets capable of providing services their imaginary fucking sky monster doesn't like. If humans get hurt in the process, so fucking what? They don't care about neither women nor fetuses. That's all bullshit. They care about their own souls, and think their god will be mad at them if they don't fight for his supposed cause. This is about them, and them alone. The actual effects on actual lives of actual humans do not fucking matter.

(Noting that not all RTs are endorsements - some are just to share regardless of agreement, but people typically note "RT is not endorsement" in their profile if they do that. This was endorsement and was deleted shortly after she did it. She knew she fucked up).

55. My website has 4 million hits a month. I will NOT be running the event notice for their next race.


I was literally about to load it when I heard the news about what they did to Planned Parenthood, and instead of posting, hit "delete."

I've helped this group in the past get many people signed up who read about them on the magazine I publish, but not anymore.

74. Are those those shady organizations that tell women that abortions cause breast cancer?

Those religious organizations that pretend to offer pregnant women "options" but instead browbeat rape victims into giving birth, while telling poor women that abortions cause cancer? Great.

We see the utter failure of letting the private sector provide health care and health research.

60. Man, I gave these people money last year.

This is bullshit. This year, I'm cutting a check to PP instead.

Edit: I guarantee she's going to be polishing up her resume this week. Really? You're in public relations and you're so stupid you open your trap like that, on a sensitive political issue?

65. Well she just undermined what little credibility Komen had on this. So if Komen

doesn't fire her for this she has no hope of recovering any credibility.

70. Karen and Jade are both old enough to know

that if you take a 2x4 to a hornet's nest, you're going to get stung pretty badly.

Stop whining about being stung.

71. I'm so glad you got that screen grab--now it's scrubbed

by those lying sacks of liquid crap at SGK. The headline in the LA Times this morning is "Komen says it's not about abortion." Yeah right. Cry me a river!

p.s. Thanks for the post, GodlessBiker.

83. Handel has no one to blame but herself

She has destroyed SGK all by herself, and her right-wing nuttery. The people that hired her should be ashamed of themselves. She's a grade A nitwit.
