    "mischaracterized" my (expletive deleted) - this was a focused decision made due to political pressure.

    Petition expressing dismay may be found here if you are interested:

    Funny hack.
    As a breast cancer survivor I revile the pink ribbons, feel-good non-profit fundraising (for...?), and pinkwashing. If people are going to "Walk" or "Run" somewhere, for some cure, they ought to be headed to the HQs of the major petro-chem firms.
    I understand PP is quickly making up for their loss from the Komen gravy train. PP is where we deliver health care? What a sick, screwed up country this is now.

    Right after I graduated from college and before I had a decent job, Planned Parenthood is where I got my healthcare. It was all I could afford.

    Did they reconsider because it was the right thing to do or did they reconsider because they saw their contributions dry up before their very eyes? In the future I will donate directly to Planned Parenthood and skip the "middle man".
