Komen Backlash

Three days of tumult,
an outpouring of criticism,
atrong public reaction
via social media.

“We want to apologize,”
said the Komen Foundation,
“for the changes made to our
funding for Planned Parenthood.”

That is what is right and fair.
That is a victory for women,
women who rely on this care,
women with breast cancer.

Reversing the decision
was the right thing to do.

I am outraged at the continued attacks on Planned Parenthood. Komen just happened to decide to change their policy about funding groups under investigation?  More likely, the change in policy was made specifically to target Planned Parenthood.
