Don't Let Them ACORN Planned Parenthood

by
Abby Zimet

A lucid look at Komen’s defunding of Planned Parenthood and what it's about - not simply breast cancer or abortion or even women's health, but a broader right-wing effort "to destroy progressive organizations, particularly those that make the increasingly rare effort to combine public service with public advocacy," and, in this case, "destroy one of the few progressive organizations that makes an everyday impact on the lives of millions of Americans." Also, what you can do about it.

Update: Komen backs down.
