To-do: Thank Komen for dropping Planned Parenthood

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Feb 01, 2012

Austin Ruse of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute has written to all the readers of his Friday Fax with an action item that’s well worth passing along:

Yesterday it was announced that the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which is the largest global funder of breast cancer research, has defunded Planned Parenthood. This is an amazing victory for pro-lifers who have asked Komen for years to stop funding the abortion giant.

The announcement was made yesterday and the Komen office has received more than 2,000 emails denouncing the decision. We need for the Komen people to hear from pro-lifers.

I ask you right now, no matter where you are in the world, to email the Susan G. Komen Foundation and thank them for defunding Planned Parenthood.

Please stop what you are doing right now and write to and say (in English please): "Thanks for defunding Planned Parenthood!" That is all you have to say! And it will make a huge difference.

Do it right now. Do not wait. Write right now to and say (in English) "Thank you for defunding Planned Parenthood."

Many thanks for your help. This is really important. They have taken a brave stand and we have to stand with them.

Amen to all that. You can be sure that Komen is being pounded with criticism from Planned Parenthood advocates. Let’s make sure they hear our side as well, loud and clear!
