Oh hey! Looks like the anti-choice folks found a new way to come up with their own set of “facts”!
What does it take to find a female candidate the SBA List will be willing to endorse? It turns out it helps if she knows little about policies affecting women.
I hope she at least got a good photo op out of the deal.
Dannenfelser explains to the Washington Post how, by calling it all “abortion providing” they’ve managed to get lawmakers to turn on family planning funding.
Despite his refusal to take their pledge, the SBA announces they will endorse Romney because he’s going to be the nominee anyway.
While a reversal of the decision is welcome, it also raises further questions. Komen denied yesterday that the de-funding had anything to do with investigations, even though their original memo said just that. Instead they claimed that the decision was based on “new metrics” and the desire to do “direct service” grants. Now, however, they are back to the “investigations” reason. And, Planned Parenthood can “apply” for future grants but who knows what that means now?
It seems that the Susan G. Komen Foundation did not think very carefully when making the decision to cut off breast cancer prevention grants to Planned Parenthood clinics. And Komen is becoming increasingly isolated as outrage grows.
Can you trust a breast cancer organization whose staff and board lie about medical science, including breast cancer?
Susan B. Anthony would be so proud!
The Susan B. Anthony List has put out their own new anti-Obama video.
