It should come as no surprise that Planned Parenthood is angry about this loss of funds. They are a well structured organization and have collected 45,000 signatures at their on-line petition which reads,
"Don't cave to Republican extremists. Reverse your decision to defund breast cancer screenings for poor women at Planned Parenthood clinics."
|This logo is from Planned Parenthood's site which has already collected 45,000 signatures. Have you sent your e-mail in support of Komen's decision yet? * email@example.com *|
This is where you come in. Have you contacted Komen to let them know you approve of their decision? If not, send them an e-mail to communicate your thoughts. Please send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org in support of the decision to end funding of Planned Parenthood. They need to be encouraged for their decision. Personally, my family has not supported anything with a pink ribbon for many years. Now we are able to financially support the noble cause of eradicating breast cancer again.
Our parish's pro-life group was advised via e-mail today by Brian Gibson of Pro-Life Action Ministries to e-mail and NOT to call Komen. Let's flood their inbox with notes of support and encouragement for their decision! Also, please continue to pray for the leadership at Komen Foundation as they still deny the link between abortion and oral contraceptives with an increased risk of breast cancer.
