This woman won’t stop digging:
Karen Handel, the former senior vice president of public policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, accused Planned Parenthood of extortion during an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Network.
The charity faced a public backlash after the Associated Press learned that it was halting their partnership with Planned Parenthood because of recently adopted criteria prohibiting grants to organizations under local, state, or federal investigation. Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) had called for an investigation of Planned Parenthood to ensure that no public funds had been spent to carry out abortions.
“It’s clear that Planned Parenthood proactively went to [the Associated Press],” Handel said. “On top of that, what is even more disturbing is the gross mischaracterization of the decision, the solid evidence that this was a premeditated, orchestrated attack on a breast cancer organization.”***
“This was nothing sort of a shake down,” she said. “To watch what played out, and somehow an organization like Planned Parenthood to be held up as sort of the face of the women’s movement was stunning to me. There is clearly a real bias around this, that somehow the right to an abortion equals women’s rights, and I reject that. It is outrageous, absolutely outrageous.”
Handel ran for Georgia governor in 2010, but lost to Democrat Nathan Deal. Part of her political platform was ensuring no taxpayer funds were used by Planned Parenthood.
Emails that have surfaced since the controversy began show that Handel was in fact behind the decision, although Komen founder Nancy G. Brinker has repeatedly denied that.
How could this be a premeditated attack on Komen when Planned Parenthood was simply reacting to what the fetus fetishists like Handle were doing to them? Planned Parenthood was simply reacting to the fact that Komen cut off funding for breast exams.
Is every single member of the right delusional? Do any of them have any grounding in reality? And do they really have nothing other than victimhood? Karen Handel tried to screw Planned Parenthood, and it backfired on her and Komen. They are not victims here.
