About a zillion people were pushing me to post about the news item that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation stopped giving money to the merchants of death at Planned Parenthood (originally set up to kill of black people).
Something about that story bothered me and I was also super busy and didn’t get to it. Now I see that “Komen” has reveresed its decision and will, in fact, give money to the merchants of death at Planned Parenthood.
“Komen” apparently was on the receiving end of a mighty whipping. Private institutions are no longer permitted by death merchants and their familiars to dispose of their money as they please.
At this point, I want to quote Ed Peters from over at his fine blog In The Light Of The Law:
I feel sorry for Komen, they seem like a nice bunch of people pursuing a worthy goal. But now Komen stands as an object lesson for other non-profits: run with the likes of Planned Parenthood for a spell, and just see what happens when you try to go your own way.
Qui cum canibus concumbunt cum pulicibus surgent.
At the same time, Nancy Brinker who runs “Komen” worked for and with Planned Parenthood. No? And because of the controversy, donations to both are up, right?
