The breast cancer charity Susan G Komen for the Cure will no longer be awarding grants
to the abortion provider Planned Parenthood. This is a sad story because it has injected the culture war into charitable giving in a way that will have terrible long term consequences. But Komen’s decision was inevitable and correct. You might call it a “morally necessary termination.”
Logistically, Komen is no great loss to Planned Parenthood. They donated $700,000 last year, a grand total of 0.058 percent of Planned Parenthood's annual revenue. This is nothing compared to the $360 million that the US government gives the organisation every year (33 percent of their total budget). By the way, many branches of the Girl Scouts are donors, too – something that Democratic Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi describes
as a “very valuable” relationship. Indeed it is. In return, Planned Parenthood has distributed a pamphlet among Girl Scouts called, “Happy, Healthy and Hot.” This section seems particularly valuable
: “Play with yourself! Masturbation is a great way to find out more about your body and what you find sexually stimulating. Mix things up by using different kinds of touch from very soft to hard. Talk about or act out your fantasies. Talk dirty to them.” Will the Girl Scouts be designing a badge for this, I wonder?
