    Komen needs to stay out of politics
    Over the last two days I have listened to the uproar caused by Planned Parenthood over a contributor (Komen) pulling its support. I find Planned Parenthood’s reaction to the Susan G. Komen Organization’s decision to be deplorable! Planned Parenthood (through the use of the media) socially and politically manipulated (stole away, stifled, abused) the 1ST Amendment right to free speech of one of its contributors. Susan G. Komen Org. has without question the right to pull support from other organizations as they see fit regardless of their reason for doing so. Here is a classic case of “bullying” if there ever was one. I find it amazing that you miss this point!

    Who gets what?
    Wow, I must have been in the dark! I thought the contributions I made went to the Komen fund to fight breast cancer. I didn't know it went to other groups for their projects! Well that takes care of new contributions and I'll do a little more research in the future!
