I was going to write a post today about my new neurosis, but then something a little more important came up. And it makes me really sad, because we were JUST planning our three day walk for the fall.
So, unfortunately, as much as Susan G Komen does for cancer research, I can’t currently support them. Because the truth is Planned Parenthood is 100% for women’s health, in a total, full body capacity. With their comprehensive birth control plans they prevent more abortions than they give, with their pap smears and mammograms, they are preventing cervical cancer and giving women who don’t have insurance (or insurance that is not woman-friendly) the chance to nip breast cancer in the bud. And the people who don’t support that, I don’t support.
So, the amount of money that we were going to spend on the 3 day ($5600), I’m giving it to Planned Parenthood. We aren’t 100% sure how to go about that yet, but when I find out I’ll let you know. Because that’s where we stand.
