Komen fox trot brings full awareness of the partnership with abortion industry...bullied back into submission??

The Komen decision and retreat or not a retreat was the news on the blogosphere all yesterday. The MSM pretty much decided it was a full fledged retreat bowing under the intense bullying of the abortion industry and friends.  Jill Stanek had some inside baseball until her source dried up. Whether it was a retreat or a nuanced way to get the bullies off their back remains to be seen. 

I would say they have now made both sides angry. The abortion industry is happy because they have shown that they play hardball which is no surprise.  They want to scare off anyone who might be thinking of jumping off their abortion ship. We either sue you into the ground  or beat you to a pulp. Kind of like the abusive husband that forces you to stay with him out of fear of being beaten or killed.

But I agree that one thing has been accomplished. If there was anyone out there who was pro life and did not know of the unholy alliance between Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood they sure do now. And it also brought out that Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms but for all that $$ hands out brochures about breast self exams and does a topical exam. They refer you to health depts etc.  for further service is there is an issue detected. As I had said before this is something I learned at a women's luncheon years ago. This is worth giving 680,000/yr??? That's a lot of brochures Better to give the money to free mammography  mobiles across the country. This heightened publicity also brought new attention to the link between cancer and abortion something the industry that profits from abortion would not like you to know.

So Komen may have danced out of the way of the bully for now and it remains to be seen if this is a word game only and no new grants will be given to the abortion bully but the Komen branding has taken a hit and trust may have been lost of both sides of this argument. 

Case in point, when you decide to break up with the bully, you have to be willing to go the distance. Once he abuses you back into submission, the exit remains blocked. Run as though your life depends  on it.
