Liberals Go Apoplectic Over Komen Foundation No Longer Providing Funds To Planned Parenthood

Personally, like Rush Limbaugh and Neal Boortz, I tend to avoid the abortion debate, mostly because it is not one of my core political interests. That said, watching Liberals go apoplectic, bat guano crazy, and spin like a neutron star is one of more core blogging interests, and this story has sent them over the edge, proving once again that a. they’re nuttier than a peanut farm, and b. they really loves them some abortion!

Washington Post – Why Komen defunded Planned Parenthood[1]

Well, they didn’t really “defund” PP, because PP gets lots of money from other sources, including the Central Government.

The Associated Press reports[2] that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation’s leading breast-cancer charity, will cut off its funding to Planned Parenthood affiliates, where the foundation has traditionally paid for preventive screening services.

According to the AP, the move will mean “a cutoff of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, mainly for breast exams.” Planned Parenthood confirms that Komen is the first, and only, organization to cut off funding since the Congress began debating the issue in earnest last winter.

And there we get the talking point about “breast exams”, which is apparently the only thing PP does. Why’d Komen cut support?

Komen said it could not continue to fund Planned Parenthood because it has adopted new guidelines that bar it from funding organizations under congressional investigation. The House oversight and investigations subcommittee announced[3] in the fall an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s funding.

That’s why. And that’s all the WP article says. Providing funds would be against Komen’s guidelines. Makes sense for them to hold off. And Liberals go crazy!

The comments at the WP keep going strong, over 550, and most are in the vein of the above.

It continues like that across the left-o-sphere, at the DU, and in the comments at the blogs and Old Media articles. Liberals always say they are against war and strife, want to solve “climate change”, and want the world to have a Coke and sing kumbaya because killing is bad, yet, stand up for abortions at the drop of a hat, wrapping it in all sorts of disingenuous language, even though 91% of pregnant women who visit Planned Parenthood have abortions[9].
