Stinky stuff on Komen's shoe not rinsing off

It's amazing that one false move could erase a decade or more of goodwill in a matter or a day or two. But that's what's happened. Stunning, really.

Most of the board and officers will probably be gone by Valentine's Day. That's what one gets for "playing it safe" in the internet age.

Comments (39)

Nothing false about it, a noble decision. Planned Parenthood is a teriffic organization, they could even be better without the killing. Komen is about life, not death.

What kind of a screwed up country relies on charity to fund the diagnoseis and treatment of cancer anyway?

Allan, even more screwed up is to kill off unborn children who could been born healthy and put up for adoption.

Well, there goes the crappy pink ribbon campaign. What was once considered a symbol of hope will now be considered a symbol of shame. Corporate sponsors will vanish. Who would want their company name affiliated with a scandal like this? SGK=Epic Fail.

Komen's made its bed, with the tighty-righties in it. Now it will become a much less effective organization, with a much smaller budget. Enjoy.

Tell me again, why can't folks donate directly to Planned Parenthood?

How many unwanted/abandoned/abused children have you adopted, Mcinor?

Why can't folks donate to Planned Parenthood?

They can, Mayor Bloomberg announced he is matching donations up to $250,000. He already donates $200,000 a year I believe,
and donations poured in today coming close to replacing the lost $700,000.

Who knew the Pink Ribbon folks were donating to kill the unborn? ONE has to admit PP KILLS like a well paid, funded machine.

Here in Nrthern Nevada where the Komen Foundation has a large, well-attended charity walk every year; this is having hardly a ripple. Of course it might have something to do with the fact that voters here are about evenly divided among Democrats and Republicans; with a large group of independents.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that Komen was giving the money to PP to fund mammograms, and then when they learned that PP doesn't do mammograms (but were instead referring the women to other providers), they pulled the funding.

If that's true, then Komen should have done their homework before giving the money.

And if that's true, I'd like to hear that side on the nightly news also, as it completes the story.

Once again, the scramble to cover their butts with ever-evolving stories as to why they pulled funding from PP tells the real tale.

First of all, to those anti-choice posters above, according to Komen, it has nothing to do with abortion. It was allegedly because of new rules that bar funding to groups under federal investigation. But, whoops! They seemed to have forgotten about that money given to Penn State.

And now, a full day later, we hear the story related to us by Michelle. To which I'll add: If that story is true, why'd it take so long to come up with it?

Since the "debacle" funding for both organizations is up. Komen just reported a 100% increase in the last two days.

Well if Komen's donations are up really up 100% (yay! more money for outrageous salaries and overhead) then it looks like this is working out well for both sides isn't it?

Planned Parenthood is like a roach motel. Not only does it kill millions of unborn children for great financial profit, but apparently once you start donating to them you can never stop. That seems to be the lesson that the thugs supporting Planned Parenthood want to send. So far they've harassed the Komen foundation and hacked their website. ( BTW, Planned Parenthood does not do breast exams or mammograms, they refer them out to doctors who are not in the killing business.)

Komen's CEO makes nearly $460,000 a year. Pretty tidy.

Some stats about PP's execs:

President Cecile Richards $353,819
Chief Operating Officer Maryana Iskander $288,886
Chief Financial Officer Maria Acosta $263,443
VP of Medical Affairs Vanessa Cullins $257,115
VP of General Counsel Barbara Otten $251,379
VP of Public Policy Laurie Rubiner $248,438
VP of Operations Karen Ruffatto $247,932
VP of Affiliates Lisa David $245,322

According to ALL’s report, the average annual salary of a PP affiliate CEO is $158,797. Twenty-two (27%) made over $200,000 in 2010. The top dozen were:

PP North Texas, Dallas, TX (salary of previous CEO): $324,381
PP Mar Monte, San Jose, CA (Linda Williams): $315,950
PP Illinois, Chicago, IL (salary of previous CEO): $302,014
PP Hudson Peconic, Hawthorne, NY (Reina Schiffrin): $296,908
PP Northern New England, Williston,VT (Steve Trombley): $292,297
PP Orange & San Bernadino, Orange, CA (Joe Dunn): $278,i871
PP Treasure Coast, West Palm Beach, FL (Lillian Tamayo): $275,238
PP MN, SD & ND, St. Paul, MN (Sarah Stoesz): $268,710
PP Heartland, Des Moines, IA (Jill June): $265,389
PP Southern New England, New Haven, CT (Judy Tabar): $264,766
PP Great Northwest, Seattle, WA (Chris Charbonneau): $259,405
PP League of MA, Boston, MA (Dianne Luby): $256,474

Pretty tidier, what's your point?

We have just gotten a peek into Pandora's box.

On the other hand, cc, Komen pays for first-class air travel for Nancy Brinker and one other executive; Planned Parenthood Federation doesn't pay for first-class travel for anyone.

These outrageous salaries are now the issue for me. No more donating to either, as I did before this revelation.

Right, because people that are in charge of a NATIONAL or STATEWIDE nonprofit organization should make - what, $50,000/year...is that low enough? These people are CEOs - how little should they make? Well, most of them are women, so they should settle for less, right?

As someone who has worked in nonprofits for my whole professional life and paid for a graduate degree and makes less than $50,000/yr let me say that you seriously disappoint me. Just because some of us work at nonprofit organizations does not mean that we take a vow of poverty.

If you had an advanced degree and 20 years experience in your field would YOU settle for making less than $50,000/year (not as a CEO, but as a manager)? Well many people do...and many of us should be better compensated for the work we do, even if it is at a nonprofit agency.

I am shocked by the ignorance shown by the comments here.

For starters how about the fact that ONLY 3% of Planned Parenthood's work is abortions. They are not an abortion mill, they are a health organization that primarily treats women with a focus on PREVENTING and treating STDs and unwanted pregnancies.

Enjoy your "pro-life" rants and judging how much people should make without regard to the scope of their job/work...this post/thread is sad to see on this site.

Really...is this the same site that hosts buck a hit day?

So much for the "noble" decision...

Three days after pulling its funding for cancer screenings from Planned Parenthood, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation on Friday apologized for the decision and announced it is reversing course.

Politics had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. Bwahahahaha!

I am shocked by the ignorance shown by the comments here.

Me too--"shocked" as in the line from the film "Casablanca"

It's worth asking this question again: what kind of screwed-up country relies on private charity for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer?

Why would anyone give to an organization founded by a proponent of eugenics ?

Since all the tired, old saws about PP are being trotted out, I feel the need to reply with the obvious...

Why would anyone give to an organization founded by a proponent of eugenics ?

Because they are the largest family planning services provider in the U.S. serving over five million clients a year, 75% of which have incomes at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level. If you want to prevent unwanted pregnancy and therefore, the incidence of abortions, supporting PP makes logical, real-world sense.

Some of our founding fathers were racist slave owners. Shall we throw out the Constitution and our system of government because of that? Times change, tankfixer.

Or how about letting Komen tell you why they support(ed?) PP themselves? From: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/02/01-9

~~~~~~
Nationwide, Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses provide nearly 750,000 breast cancer screenings annually, offering risk assessments, breast exams, breast health information and education, and diagnostic and surgical referrals. Over the past five years, Planned Parenthood health centers have conducted nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams with funds from Komen, out of a total of more than four million clinical breast exams performed nationwide by Planned Parenthood clinics. Komen grants also supported more than 6,400 out of 70,000 mammogram referrals made by Planned Parenthood. These are affiliate-to-affiliate grants between Komen and Planned Parenthood sister organizations at the state level.

A large share of the clients served at Planned Parenthood clinics are low-income African-American and Latina women. The National Cancer Institute identifies lack of access to early and effective screening for breast cancer (and hence lack of early treatment) as a primary reason that African-American and Latina women die of breast cancer at higher rates than the general population. In fact, Komen itself recognized these links in a 2011 statement lauding its relationship with Planned Parenthood:

While Komen Affiliates provide funds to pay for screening, education and treatment programs in dozens of communities, in some areas, the only place that poor, uninsured or under-insured women can receive these services are through programs run by Planned Parenthood.

Komen further stated:

These facilities serve rural women, poor women, Native American women, women of color, and the un- and under-insured. As part of our financial arrangements, we monitor our grantees twice a year to be sure they are spending the money in line with our agreements, and we are assured that Planned Parenthood uses these funds only for breast health education, screening and treatment programs.

As long as there is a need for health care for these women, Komen Affiliates will continue to fund the facilities that meet that need.

Worst 4th quarter call in history.

A trick play, with a fumble, recovered by a lineman, and three laterals to running backs, run in for a touchdown...and called back for a sideline penalty JUST before the clock runs out because no one was watching the clock.

NO TROPHY WILL BE AWARDED TO EITHER TEAM !

It's worth asking this question again: what kind of screwed-up country relies on private charity for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer?

Posted by Allan L. | February 3, 2012 10:57 AM

One that has lead in medical technology breakthroughs despite its already heavily socialized healthcare systems. A government that has given us the idiotic food pyramid and taxes us for corn subsidies and now wants to tax us more for the soda pop made with the cheap subsidized corn because its bad for us. Then there is the horrid record of the VA and how it treats veterans...

I've long not been a fan of Komen and not because of the PP connection. They're overly commercial and I question how much cash goes to actual research along with promoting the notion that breast cancer is the biggest scourge of cancer victims. I'm also tired of seeing pink ribbons everywhere (medicine bottom tops?) and being guilt tripped by cashiers at super market checkouts to "round up" my bill for a donation (Safeway, and not just for cancer groups).

Times change ?
PP is still killing black babies...

JS, thanks for the Fox News pablum about medical science and the VA, but the little bit of it that isn't outright false is irrelevant.

tankfixer:

How many unwanted/abandoned/abused black babies have you adopted?

PP is still killing black babies…

Let's cut off access to life-saving health care for mothers and sisters, because it is provided by an organization whose abortion policies, legal as they are, offend us. More evidence that, for these geniuses, the "right to life" is extinguished by birth.

"REalitybasedliberal -

So if I understand your point correctly, if I don't adopt a black baby then I have to be for killing them?

Alan -

No one is cutting off life saving health care to mothers and sisters, we'll just give it to another charity (say a Catholic hospital) that doesn't fund abortion. Oh, and half of all those babies killed at PP would have grown up to be mothers and sisters.

Maybe in amongst all the feigned concern about medical care for the poor, you can spare some for the women maimed and killed in botched, back room abortions before Roe v. Wade. They were mothers and sisters too.

But this thread has really jumped the shark. Remember, Komen said this had nothing to do with abortion. You can't have it both ways.

Evidently radical Islam is not the only faith that does not take apostates lightly.

Deviate from Liberal orthodoxy and the ululating jihadis will cut you down without mercy.

The most important thing is that the work of the blessed Margaret Sanger (pbuh) be continued.

Hopefully the entire board of the Komen foundation will not be beheaded. But they must be expelled and replaced with people of the faith.

I think they should block and discourage condom distribution and then cut support for young pregnant ladies.

Yeah. Great policy.

"There is a striking kinship between our movement and Margaret Sanger's early efforts. She, like we, saw the horrifying conditions of ghetto life. Like we, she knew that all of society is poisoned by cancerous slums. Like we, she was a direct actionist — a nonviolent resister. She was willing to accept scorn and abuse until the truth she saw was revealed to the millions. At the turn of the century she went into the slums and set up a birth control clinic, and for this deed she went to jail because she was violating an unjust law. Yet the years have justified her actions. She launched a movement which is obeying a higher law to preserve human life under humane conditions. Margaret Sanger had to commit what was then called a crime in order to enrich humanity, and today we honor her courage and vision; for without them there would have been no beginning. Our sure beginning in the struggle for equality by nonviolent direct action may not have been so resolute without the tradition established by Margaret Sanger and people like her. Negroes have no mere academic nor ordinary interest in family planning. They have a special and urgent concern." -- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1966)

Having scraped Handel off their pink shoes, will Komen recognize that it has no soul, that the work it claims to do can be done better by others?
