Watch liberal MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell interview Susan G. Komen founder Nancy Brinker. Andrea barely lets Nancy speak. Then Andrea interviews two liberal pro-abortion Senators (Boxer and Murray).

The best part of the interview is when Nancy says the feedback Komen has received has been “favorable” to their decision (or words to that effect) — THIS IS HUGE! It means we’re winning the email war. Please email news@komen.org with the subject line “Thank You for Defunding Planned Parenthood!” and keep up the positive momentum.

Attacks on Susan G. Komen Reveals Planned Parenthood’s Real Face [Updated w/ Video]

How revealing this fight over Susan G. Komen’s defunding of Planned Parenthood is!

Wesley J. Smith asks exactly the right question:“Abortion Matters More Than Fighting Breast Cancer to Liberals?”

So it would seem. Various Democrats like Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) are boycotting Susan G. Komen over this decision. Howard Dean isencouraging corporate sponsors to punish Komen. Welcome to the real face of the pro-abortion movement: bullying liars. They immediately and viciously throw Komen under the bus simply for ceasing to give them money (and their seal of approval).

One of the main lies being pushed by pro-aborts is the claim that women will go without care now. Nonsense. Planned Parenthood never provided the services that Komen contracted through them in the first place. The founder of Komen, Nancy G. Brinker explains in a moving video released today (please click on the link and LIKE the video!) that no woman will experience a gap in Komen’s services. A friend with inside knowledge wrote to me:

…[Planned Parenthood does] not provide essential life-saving screening mammography. They instead refer women to hospitals for those services. But there’s no way of knowing how many women actually follow through and receive a mammogram, which makes measuring impact very difficult.

A better granting model would be to invest in grants with the actual service provider whenever possible, which is exactly what Komen has done with its new strategy…

In other words, Planned Parenthood wasn’t giving women mammograms in the first place, as LiveAction exposed some time ago. Komen simply chose to cut out the middleman (Planned Parenthood) and instead directly support hospitals that actually provide life-saving services.

All of which reminds us of another lie: that Planned Parenthood is about protecting and promoting women’s health. Sue Thayer, who worked for Planned Parenthood for 20 years, exposes that lie in the Washington Times today.

Jill Stanek has more of the inside story on what led Komen to make it’s decision. But as I wrote yesterday, we need to stay focused on two main things: thanking Komen and exposing Planned Parenthood.

Also, important to note: Komen has also promised to stop funding embryonic stem cell research centers, a promise I believe.

Let’s keep up the positive pressure on Komen and push back against the pro-abort lies. If Planned Parenthood thought last year was their worst they are in for bigger surprises this year!

UPDATE — Proabort activists hacked the Komen website yesterday, according to pop culture web siteMediate, inserting the phrase ”Help us run over poor women on our way to the bank.” What a stupid stunt. Women who are fighting for the end of breast cancer should be outraged.

“Planned Parenthood has a vested interest in making sure our teenagers are as sexually active as possible.   They want our kids to ‘need’ contraception and ‘need’ treatment for STD’s, and ultimately, to ‘need’ abortion.   If young people were to stop having promiscuous sex, Planned Parenthood would soon go out of business, and they won’t let that happen.   They must sell their ‘reproductive health services’ to the next generation if they are to stay profitable. Planned Parenthood says their mission is to provide help, information, medical care, and to protect women.   Bull.   Their ignoble ‘business’ is the corruption of our kids.   Their solvency is secured through the killing of children in the womb.   They profit off the diseases and heartache our children suffer because they have done exactly what Planned Parenthood wanted them to do in the first place:   have lots of sex.” — Jennifer Hartline

Facebook: “I’m Expecting” Status Added For Parents!

Last week Facebook introduced an exciting new feature – expecting parents can add an unborn baby they are expecting to their family connections on Facebook!

They can also add a photo, name, and due date for their not-yet-born child.

Even more exciting was the reason why Facebook added this feature – because parents were already trying to figure out some way to share this type of good news with their friends in an official way.

In other words, this wasn’t a political move by Facebook (though some will try to interpret it that way) — it was rather responding to something their users wants to see added as a feature.

I especially like that both mothers and fathers can add this feature to their page. After all, every unborn child has a mother and father.

Here’s how a spokesperson for Facebook described the change:

“Facebook [has] started providing the option to add an ‘Expected: Child’ as a way for users to more accurately express their identity.”

Actually, I would argue that this change more accurately reflects the identity not only of the parents, but also of the unborn child. Why do parents “expect” a child when they find out they are pregnant? Because they already have a child!

Jamie Frevele at The Mary Sue blog decided to be flippant about the news when she heard it:

Oh, yes: Now you, too, can announce the goings-on of your uterus or the uterus you love by adding “Expecting: Child” to your list of family members and friends. (Unless you are expecting an alien, dinosaur, or mythical fairy zygote. Those are not currently options.) And now, in addition to all those wonderful, darling fetus updates, there is an official recognition on Facebook for feti!

The problem is, Jamie, human mothers and fathers only conceive and expect human babies.

Funny how that works out, isn’t it?

(By the way, I wonder why Planned Parenthood, which loves to be “tech-savvy”, hasn’t welcomed Facebook’s new feature yet?? Considering they use the name “Parenthood” you’d think they’d want to celebrate people who are proud to be parents!)

If you know someone who is expecting and who might be excited about adding this feature to their Facebook page, here’s how to do it:

1. Click “Edit Profile” on your user profile page
2. Choose the “Family & Friends” tab and select “Add another family member”
3. From drop-down menu click on “Expected: Child”
4. Enter a due date and a chosen name for the unborn baby (or pick a nickname if a name hasn’t been chosen yet)

Voila!

What do you think of Facebook adding this new feature? Do you consider Facebook pro-life?

This is an old video and not relevant in a lot of ways but I still like this video because I agreed with her completely and because I still am ready to see Planned Parenthood’s funding getting axed because (although we’re all told otherwise) there are other community health clinics that offer services to low income women and don’t kill children.
