Today has been a shitty day on the War on Women™ front, as detailed by ABL and Emily. What with Tennessee deciding to up the intimidation of doctors who perform abortions and the women seeking abortions themselves; a Dick in Alaska suggesting that a pregnant woman seeking abortion should need the permission of the baby’s daddy in order to receive one to relieve his mind; a Proud idiot in Arizona saying that a pregnant woman seeking an abortion should have to view an abortion before having said abortion, and; anti-choice terrorists firebombing the office of Pro-Planned Parenthood Texas Senator Wendy Davis, it has been a shitty day to be the owner of a vagina.
But, it’s not all doom and gloom, Angry Black Readers. I have two small pieces of good news in the War on Women™. First, some news on our old nemesis, Komen for the Cure. Remember when we banded together and caused such an outcry, Karen Handel, VP of Propagating Bullshit resigned so she could nail herself to cross? Well, the latest news on the Komen Foundation is that two top execs have resigned and that the Foundation is in disarray. They aren’t sure how much they’ll be able to fundraise since their image took such a hit with the pulling funding from Planned Parenthood fiasco, and a number of local Komen affiliates have reported that they haven’t been able to reach their goals, either. For example, Jamie Leopold, the executive director of Komen South Arizona reported that its race only raised $200,000 of the $700,000 goal. We did this, Angry Black Readers, by uniting and raising a loud roar over the initial debacle.
