Inside story on Komen split from Planned Parenthood – Jill Stanek

Inside story on Komen split from Planned Parenthood – Jill Stanek.

Click above for a bit of inside scoop on the “divorce” of Susan G Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood. Jill Stanek predicts that Komen is totally finished with funding  planned parenthood, and one reason is that the latter organization took their “divorce” to the press, as a means of punishment.

Pharmer would be more enthusiastic about Komen foundation if it were really interested in addressing all the means to prevent and cure breast cancer. It seems to have become one of those bloated “non-profit” behemoths which burn a good portion of the funds which could have gone directly towards productive research and interventions.

Some charitable organizations begin a program of self perpetuation, to bring about job security for the employees.

The decision by Komen foundation to ditch planned parenthood likely had more to do with decreasing controversy,  increasing income, and less to do with ethical reasoning.

The Komen statement that it does not fund  embryonic stem cell research is likely fueled by public awareness  that such efforts have  produced no positive medical results. Geron, the former industry leader is also bailing out, and moving more resources to adult stem cell work. The statement put forth by Komen claims that it never funded embryonic stem cell research, though it has had prior association with institutions which were carrying out such research.

More on planned parenthood punishing Komen for defunding them.  PP is using this event as a fundraiser and as a threat to other corporations which stop giving. Imagine what will happen if the girl scouts bail on them!  Moral of the story, don’t get started with planned parenthood.

The Early Embryo is Growing and Differentiating, but Gingrich Doesn’t Think It’s Alive Yet

Gingrich Breaks from Some in Anti-Abortion Community on When Life Begins – ABC News.

Newt doesn’t want to give up on embryonic stem cell research, yet, although the front running private research company, Geron has done so. It would be nice if he and the rest of the  candidates could commit to cease wasting public funds on  unethical research which has consistently failed to produce results.

The candidate probably does not want to get into the issue of the morning after pills and the birth control pills, and he’s willing to display ignorance of developmental biology in order to avoid this.  Gingrich might be afraid of losing the birth control pill users by acknowledging   that the life of a sexually reproducing organism begins when it really does.

He was also able to suspend logic, accept the fraud of global warming,  and sit down with Nancy Pelosi in a warm and fuzzy  Environmentalist Whacko ad.

The entire  government could start by acknowledging reality.

Rather than being mis-branded as “contraceptives” the various  hormonal B.C. products  should be called   ‘birth control drugs’, and carry the tag  “This product has multiple mechanisms of action,  and  might  (or is likely to) operate by stopping the life of an early human embryo.”
