Snowe, Collins, Hutchison, Granger and Specter are are self-avowed pro-choicers, for what it's worth.

Gender might outweigh reproductive issues for Brinker, though, as four of the five have vaginas, and the fifth is a c^nt.

Yes, I'd agree with this though I would assume it's Party and gender as there are zero pro-choice Democratic women on that list. Ohhhhh right.

@laurel Yeah, this appears to just be a "pink" gun. Komen denies any partnership. Looks like everyone SMELLS BLOOD.!/komenforthecure/status/165535417209335810

But Komen does support pink handguns:
Everyone knows gay marriage is pro-breast cancer, even if more men die of it than of testicular cancer, so their institutionalized homophobia has to be legit, right? Otoh, fried grease with chicken from KFC is a Good Thing as far as this racket is concerned. You know what else promotes breast cancer? Contraception. Also, too sex education, and such. Not to mention Democrats and Occupiers. SGK has its work cut out for it as it heads for richly deserved oblivion.

I cannot get up from the floor where I feel off my chair laughing when I read, "Rep. Mark Foley (R-Boys Locker Room)." Thank you for bringing a little levity to this extremely issue.

Just because Komen caved to pressure in this instance demonstrates to me that they would rather follow in the foot steps of the evils of the Catholic Church. The recent actions of Komen demonstrates, just like the Catholic Church, the extreme right-wing leaders of Komen would rather support molestation and/or rape of children plus the systematic cover-up of such a heinous crime rather than funding in many cases a woman's life saving/screening health care.

Just imagine sitting in a boardroom and the question put forth is:
"Shall we award the next grant to Penn State or that group under congressional investigation, Planned Parenthood?"
