Connie Schultz writes that poor women will be the victims of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation’s decision to cut ties with Planned Parenthood, in her column, Komen Caves To The Far Right — And Poor Women Pay:

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation has severed its ties with Planned Parenthood.

    This is a perfect example of bully tactics having the desired effect. Of course the probable result of this action represent the ever present short-sighted thinking so prevasive in todays politics. These troglodyte’s with their smug celebration of marching backward are indeed a curse upon on body politic not to mention common sense. Blocking breast cancer screenings for perhaps millions of lower income American women can’t possibly have a positive result. It is painfully obvious that this decision to hold back funding is purely politial no matter what kind of spin they attempt to put upon that decision. It is ugly and just plain wrong. I hope that the women of country get mad as hell and let those so intent upon destroying women’s rights speak out clearly come next November. It is clear that far too many men are just oblivious to what is taking place in this country, or perhaps they believe it does not concern them. I certainly that is not the case, but action, or inaction, speaks volumns.
