The lesson here is one to be noted, PP is well respected by the majority of women in the country as they see it as a provider of women's health to the women most needing help.

You can agree or disagree with the PP mission, but reality is there is a tremendous amount of support among woman for it as is evidenced in their relatively quiet yet significant fund raising capabilities, they generate in fees and donations approaching a $billion.

In my town, PP got like $17k to distribute self breast exam cards that you hang over your shower head. This is all they have gotten from Komen in the past several years, yet Komen raised approaching $1mm in this community alone. It will be interesting to see how that is affected.

Here is the Fact Check for PP if you want to know the low down:

Puget Ute icon NEW: The term 'contraception' includes 'the morning after pill' and 'abortion'. Catholic Hospitals are vehemently opposed to those practices, and there are plenty of other places to obtain those legal services.

SubstiUTE icon NEW: Except for many poor woman and those in rural areas PP is their only chance for cancer screening and general health care. That was a large part of the issue.

Maji Man icon NEW: Then Komen should do their own program, or put out an RFP for it, without the other PP baggage. (nm)

Puget Ute icon NEW: Most of the money raised on those S.G. Koman walks goes to stage the walks and to support the organization. If you want your dollars to be used efficiently to 'fight cancer', there are many better organizations who will gladly accept your dollars. (nm)
