One of the most talked-about stories this week has been about the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation's earlier decision not to renew part of its longstanding partnership with Planned Parenthood. The foundation has now reversed its decision, much to the applause of some of our readers.
This reader, who said he is a doctor, wrote that he supported this decision.
RationalDoc: "As a primary care physician, I am proud of the Komen organization for their correct decision to continue to support the preventive women's health services that are provided by Planned Parenthood. Too many misinformed people mistakenly demonize Planned Parenthood, as 98% of the services they provide are preventive health services including cancer screening and birth control for women, often lower income women with limited access to health care, and only 2% of their services are abortion-related, and no federal money is used for that small part of what they do. Planned Parenthood prevents unintended pregnancies, thereby reducing the need for abortion, a more positive impact on our attempts to reduce abortion than anything the vigilante anti-abortion people have done. In fact, many of the anti-abortion people are also against sex education in schools. Go figure."
Another reader said they were wondering about the system in place for health care service funding.
lalizzie: "While I disagree with the Komen foundation's original decision to repeal funding to Planned Parenthood, it is totally within their rights as a nonprofit to decide which causes it would like to fund. This whole fiasco also begs the broader question; should we be relying on nonprofit organizations like Komen to fund public health services?"
But this person said the decision is within Komen's rights.
weissdog: "Yet another example of how abortion is politicized. Why shouldn't Komen be able to support what and whom they want? They are not a taxpayer subsidized organization and are not a government entity. Why does anyone other than their leadership have any say here?"
This reader said Planned Parenthood helped their family.
eagleyes4u: "Planned Parenthood saved my mother's life with an early breast-cancer detection, she's with us today because of their amazing Doctors and medical staff. I'm so angry at Komen for injecting politics into woman's healthcare! When will these religious zealots stop injecting their extreme views on the rest of us and our bodies! Planned Parenthood continues to serve communities with essential life-saving services and I will forever be grateful for there existence. As for Komen I will no longer donate, work or walk for them ever again."
Many readers wanted to talk about the politics of abortion, and this reader said they don't believe in it and then explained why.
Opethfan: "There's always going to be two sides to a discussion. I'll just keep believing in myself and my personal decisions. I don't believe in abortion. It's wrong at every level. Yes, it's your body but that doesn't give you the right to kill. Use double protection if you're going to sleep around. Take some responsibility for the wrong choices you are making. What's the difference in killing a baby at the fetal stage and killing a baby at birth, or thereafter? There really is no difference."
Some commenters mentioned that they felt birth control is OK, but abortion is not.
MindLikeWarp: "Birth control is perfectly fine. No human being is created. Once a human being is created, terminating it is murder."
Some called for a gentler tone of discussion.
Stoshie: "I am against abortion. But I am not arrogant, angry, or intolerant enough to force my views on anyone else. I also know what Planned Parenthood does, and it goes far, far beyond just providing abortions. Those ignorant fools who think that is all Planned Parenthood does are too stupid to make relevant comments about Planned Parenthood."
Others wrote that they opposed to the contribution scheme in general.
TinMan57: "They won't see any donations from me. One charity should not be donating to another. Just morally and ethically wrong!"
But some thought they wouldn't have contributed to Komen anyway.
OvernOut: "We give to organizations that support persons with neurological disorders, so neither of these groups. I thought SGK was too big, anyway, and took funds from other worthy causes. I'm starting to think the same about the 'red dress' stuff, too. These organizations are all about 'branding' or selling pink and red stuff, not actually helping people in need."
This person was very happy about the decision.
artichokes: "Thank goodness Komen Foundation reversed it's decision. Why is it that for the last 50 years conservative bible thumping white men try to control women 's rights? Women must stand strong for their personal choices. Dear conservatives, I make my own life choices, not you! Planned Parenthood is helping women with their health issues. Leave the organization alone!"
