Former Susan G.Komen vice-president Karen Handel has decided to go on the warpath about the effort that Planned Parenthood supporters put forth regarding the Komen decision to remove PP from its grant list, then reversing said decision. This attitude should come as no surprise, given that Handel's position as a ardent pro-life proponent is well-known. What is reprehensible is her statement that "all of us should be saddened that an outside organization will put this kind of pressure on another organization around their processes and granting and how they do it and to whom they are going to grant". Why reprehensible, you ask? Because conservatives are known to utilize a similar tactic when they object to an advertiser on a TV or radio station. For instance, the effort to remove Ellen DeGeneres as the spokesperson for JC Penney because she is gay is exactly what Handel is railing against regarding PP. Handel doesn't like PP's overall mission, so removing the money is a worthy effort. Ellen is a poor representative for a "traditional family" store like Penney's, so taking her out is a worthy effort. Just face it Karen- your decision to leave Komen is politically motivated...and while I admire your sticking to your guns...don't try to make us believe this was anything but you stating that you don't like PP...so there.
