I got pretty worked up about the whole Komen-Planned Parenthood smackdown, and I haven’t really cooled off yet.
The more I read about what went on behind the scenes and about the woman Komen hired to be in charge, the angrier I get.
Then there was the non-apology “apology,” which basically said: We’re sorry Planned Parenthood told you what we are up to. We’re sorry we got caught in a blatant lie about our policy. We’re sorry you got mad. We’ll let Planned Parenthood have money for the rest of this grant cycle, but by the time the next rolls around we’ll have figured out how to disqualify them. Quit bitching about us. If you don’t stop bitching, women will suffer.
If you want to read an excellent rallying cry, go read Margaret and Helen. I mean it, really.
