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.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
