Late yesterday afternoon the news broke that the Susan G Komen Foundation had decided to halt all donations to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. As you can imagine, pro-lifers quickly began to celebrate and pro-abortion activists were shocked.
For year, we in the pro-life movement have been calling for not only the United States Government to defund Planned Parenthood, but also for corporations and organizations like Susan G Komen to halt donations. Over the years we have seen victories with corporations like Target and Harley Davidson pulling funding because of public boycotts and pressure from the pro-life movement.
Last night’s announcement is a huge victory for pro-lifers, babies and for women everywhere as many have wanted to support Susan G Komen but could not in good conscience because of their support of Planned Parenthood. Now that the donations have stopped and we are open to supporting Susan G Komen, we must also thank them even louder than we scolded them.
It is easy to be loud and protest things we are angry about, but I believe we need to be even louder in our praise and thanks so they know we are supporting their decision.
We have made it easy for you to thank the Susan G Komen foundation by putting together a simple web site to use and promote –http://thankskomen.com/
Please visit http://thankskomen.com/ and let them know how happy we are with their decision to defund Planned Parenthood and then share this site with everyone you know.
