Fight Like A Girl

For now, the final word on the Susan Komen/Planned Parenthood debacle goes to the inimitable, 80-something-year-old Helen of Margaret and Helen, who is some pissed. She is "tired of pink razors," and feels confident she speaks for millions of women "when I say that from now on if you push us, we will push back."

"Exactly what women’s health clinics did they think we women were using for years before we started racing for a cure? Did they think that the millions of us who had gone to Planned Parenthood ....weren’t aware of the services we were provided? Trust me. When you go to a place and have a doctor poke around your hoo-ha, you pay attention."
