    I say they are making a responsible decision,with the.misappropriation of funds by the obama admin,they want to ensure correct appropriation of their funding. Nothing wrong with that. They get my support.

    So now the leftists are attempting to dictate where an organization's charitable contributions must go to?

    Is there ANYTHING that you leftists don't want complete control of?

    If anyone is really serious about changing the Komen Foundation's mind, forget the petitions, contact them directly:

    Susan G. Komen for the Cure

    1 call is worth 1,000 names on an online petition, or 10,000 FaceBook "likes".

    Tell them that you will immediately cease any donations until they reverse their decision. You can always donate to all the other cancer foundations out there in the interim.

    Or if you're really, really serious, show up at their office. The addresses can be found from the link.

    1 personal appearance is worth 100 calls.

    AND....Another victory in the Republican's war on American freedom.

    And if by "entitlement" you mean something I worked for, earned and paid into my whole working life then I could not agree more. I'm fucking ENTITLED.

    50% of American women will have an unwanted pregnancy in their lifetime. The Republicans want the government to force these women to bring their pregnancy to term. Unwanted children are MUCH more likely to be abused.

    Therefore, Republicans are pro child abuse.

    And don't tell me an embryo is a human being. If it was, the thousands of frozen embryos in fertility labs in this country would have the right to own guns.
