Pelosi on Komen/PP: "When Women Speak Out, Women Win"

Grinning like an imbecile about her "big victory," as she termed it, Pelosi nevertheless went on to threaten that the money just might not be flowing to breast cancer as it once did.

“We certainly will be able to support them as we have in the past,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. But the extent of the public backlash, she added, is “a question of what other people in the country think about it.”

I'm glad that this is a victory "for women." I'm not sure what to make of all those pro-life women I know, though. I guess the implicit, and sometimes explicit, message is that they're not really women.

Did Komen cave? It's unclear. I think they did, but it's hard to tell, because Komen is spinning in both directions.

As a Komen Board member told Life News, the reversal is not really so much a reversal as a clarification of Komen’s grants procedures, which will still impact Planned Parenthood’s future funding from the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Daniel Foster writes that it's pretty repulsive that Planned Parenthood is behaving like a mob "protection" racket. They seem to believe they are entitled to dip their beaks into any money stream that vaguely involves a woman's issue, even if they're not actually providing the services that would qualify them for a voluntary contribution.

They're not doing mammograms. Period. But they and their allies have got it into their heads that if they're "pro-woman," as they define "woman" (and as they define "pro"), they're just entitled to that breast cancer money.

And they're willing to actually threaten breast cancer treatment, prevention, and research over that.
