Sanctity of the Uterus and its Fetus vs. Breasts?

Hi! Now that I have your attention, I have a little quiz for you! It's only two questions and then you can get right back to staring.

Please study the images below.

Q. Which cancer-ridden breast belongs to a Pro-Choice woman?

Okay, since you can't tell from the mammograms, try this one: 

Why did Susan G. Komen for the Cure make this (see below) unavailable, or harder to get, at Planned Parenthood Clinics?

A. Pro-Choice women don't deserve the Cure or even the prevention. They deserve to get breast cancer and lose their breasts. 
B. Poor women, who may or may not be Pro-Choice, don't deserve the Cure or the prevention and and heck, they might deserve to get cancer and lose their breasts. 
C. Breast cancer is a disease that shouldn't affect god-fearing, faithful Pro-Life women, but Pro-Life women who can only afford to go to Planned Parenthood (that hellish place!) probably deserve it for going there for their pap smears and birth control. Because Planned Parenthood is like Sodom and Gomorrah. 
D. ANY women who go to Planned Parenthood probably don't need, I mean deserve, Clinical Breast Exams or the Cure. They've just got baby-killing on their mind. Who cares about breasts?
E. All of the above.

What? You got a problem with that? Seems like you're not alone.

I say that you can take it to the boards, people.

You can start with Facebook where I posted the following:

Breast Cancer has no political agenda. Planned Parenthood clinics prevent unwanted pregnancies not just end them, and often are the only clinics that poor women can go to for regular exams and birth control. This decision strikes at the heart of healthcare. Politics has no place in the early prevention of cancer.

You can blast it to the top of your lungs on Twitter.

And finally, you can write to Karen Handel, the architect of Susan G. Komen's downfall from the Righteous Women's Organizations List:

Karen Handel
Susan G. Komen for the Cure
5005 LBJ Freeway, Suite 250
Dallas, TX 75244

Let her, and SGK's Board of Directors know what you think of breast cancer being a political disease. Let her know what you think about cutting breast exams for poor and uninsured women.

Is your fetus-bearing uterus more important than your breasts?

You've heard of Sophie's Choice? Now you've got Karen's Choice.
