Brutal campaign against Komen should open eyes about Planned Parenthood

Catholic World News - February 10, 2012

Austin Ruse writes that the carefully orchestrated, overwhelming campaign of public pressure on the Komen Foundation, which led to a reversal of the foundation’s plan to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood, was a remarkably successful display of propaganda. The brutal efficiency of that campaign should open some eyes, he says:

Clearly, Planned Parenthood and its allies, even within the Komen Foundation, care more about abortion than in saving women’s lives. Let’s hope that folks who have not been paying attention now know the real truth about Planned Parenthood.

    It's a typical liberal tactic: come at us with so many initiatives at once that it is almost impossible to stop all of them. They might be trying to get as much done as possible in case they lose in November.

    Komen is now nothing but a pink arm of PP and their allies.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else not an incredible acceleration in attacks by the Culture of Death?

    Since when can the applicant for a grant demand that the grant be awarded and threaten dire consequences if it is not? Since Planned Parenthood, evidently. The ousted Susan G. Komen for the Cure vice president Karen Handel says it was a "shakedown" and she is exactly right. Now PP and the Obama Administation are trying to shakedown the rest of us to pay for contraception, abortifacients, etc. It's all one big campaign to control us, make us accept their perversions, and pay for them.
