This week the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation, the breast-cancer-research advocacy group, cut its grants to Planned Parenthood, in a thinly-veiled effort to appease right wing anti-abortion groups who want to rob women of their right to choose. Or maybe not so thinly-veiled, given that the new Komen VP, Karen Handel, is a right-wing pro-life Republican who pledged to eliminate all state funds to Planned Parenthood when she was running for governor in Georgia.
This animation was made one year ago this month, in reaction to Republicans pushing 3 radical anti-abortion bills in the House they control that seek to strangle women’s rights and freedom in any way they can. They proposed raising taxes, redefining rape and incest, allowing hospitals to refuse to save a woman’s life and other convoluted and cowardly end runs around the legal right of women to determine their own fate. It looks like the right wing extremists have gotten one step closer to their goal with this Komen decision, unless we fight back.
