I don’t think in pink.

BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW THAT OCTOBER IS DOWN SYNDROME AWARENESS MONTH. 92% of unborn children diagnosed with Downs will be aborted….’pink’ can take a break from focusing on women’s breasts, which is part of the sexualization of our girls and women, and refocus ‘pink’ buying power on those that support the lives of our sweet unborn. I, and MANY others are taking a stand this month by NOT BUYING ANYTHING SWATHED IN PINK.

KEEPLIFELEGAL

I HATE PINK. It’s as if the entire world has been bathed in Pepto for the month of October. Football players, refs, coaches and entire stadiums are Pepto-ized. Women in pink t-shirts hand out pamphlets to football fans entering the stadiums. Car dealerships and other businesses are Pepto-ed. But let me tell you how I really feel about it…

Everyone has been touched by cancer whether personally or a family member. But that is not a defense, that is an observation. There is no excuse to inundate the American public with PINK when all other cancers are hardly mentioned and NEVER championed like breast cancer. Isn’t that…odd?

Did you know that September is Prostate Awareness Month? NEITHER DID I…..because I didn’t see a wave of blue prostate cancer ribbons and t-shirts anywhere. According to the Center for Disease Control, prostate cancer affects 152.7 men per 100K, breast cancer affects 121…

The Politician’s Questionable Prolife Definition of….prolife.

During the 2012 elections, Republicans questioned why abortion was not prevalent and Democrats wondered why it was so prevalent. Seem a bit bipolar? You’re right, it is – and trying to sort this out for moderates to understand was exhausting. There is this seemingly thin line that some career politicians stand on to appeal to prospective voters, but core issues like abortion have been blurred to get there. It’s as if they become somewhat androgynous so that no one is offended.

The most popular candidates this past election (that we know of) that actually took a stand was Todd Akin of Missouri and Richard Mourdock of Indiana. Their principled prolife views were not accepted by and large, leaving moderates wondering if they were ever prolife OR liberals thinking they’ve outed them in the public square. As mixed up as that sounds, it is evident that more often than not we will never be blessed with a total prolife candidate without the rape/incest exception. How do we take our lumps after the elections? One at a time. Here is one such lump: Ohio Senate President Tom Niehaus.

Recently, Ohio Senate President Tom Niehaus had the nerve to say ‘We have been the most pro-life legislature in my memory’ not only struck down a vote on the Heartbeat Bill AGAIN, but effectively discounted its potential to go before the Supreme Court to challenge Roe v. Wade. Niehaus said he was ‘threatened’ and ‘bullied’ to get a vote on the bill….how does a so-called prolife Senate President NOT vote on the most lifesaving piece of legislation in his career? However, I am happy to see that the Senate President Pro Tempore Keith Faber is a strong supporter of the Heartbeat Bill. Will it get the vote it deserves next year? I pray so.

Both Niehaus and Senator Peggy Lehner said that the Heartbeat Bill could have the ‘potential to undermine all of the good work the right-to-life community has done’ – I’m not understanding why that should be a factor since this bill could (could, not would) nullify other passed legislation since this one will set the precedent of NO ABORTIONS when the heartbeat is detected. “It’s not personal, Sonny. It’s strictly business,” Michael Corleone would say….sounding strikingly familiar from Mr. Niehaus to the Heartbeat Bill’s supporters. It’s always personal…always.

It is also documented that Mr. Niehaus accepted the Komen Columbus Public Service Award even though Komen supports Planned Parenthood….I would not call that ‘prolife’ and in fact would call that working both sides of the political fence. Do the math – other recipients of Komen’s award was Rep. Joyce Beatty (D) and Former Governor Ted Strickland (D) who campaigned with and for Obama.

Are there fundamental Prolifers in politics today? I believe that there is on the State level. Have we completely understood that the only way we can eradicate abortion is getting through ‘the system’? Can politicians fundamentally support prolife and still vote for the ‘common good’ loophole of rape/incest exceptions to quiet the moderates and some liberals to get a foothold? But until then, abortion continues to kill off future voters and taxpayers and we wonder why the economy is freaked out. Go figure. While I believe in total Personhood for our unborn children, I am also mature enough to understand that we have to pick at Roe until we can get in front of the Supreme Court.

The fight is never over or quiet. Even the local NARAL reps have said, “We don’t believe for a second that this threat is over – perhaps delayed, but not over.”

I couldn’t agree more.

I don’t think in pink.

I HATE PINK. It’s as if the entire world has been bathed in Pepto for the month of October. Football players, refs, coaches and entire stadiums are Pepto-ized. Women in pink t-shirts hand out pamphlets to football fans entering the stadiums. Car dealerships and other businesses are Pepto-ed. But let me tell you how I really feel about it…

Everyone has been touched by cancer whether personally or a family member. But that is not a defense, that is an observation. There is no excuse to inundate the American public with PINK when all other cancers are hardly mentioned and NEVER championed like breast cancer. Isn’t that…odd?

Did you know that September is Prostate Awareness Month? NEITHER DID I…..because I didn’t see a wave of blue prostate cancer ribbons and t-shirts anywhere. According to the Center for Disease Control, prostate cancer affects 152.7 men per 100K, breast cancer affects 121 per 100K (2004-2008). So why are we do we see just Pepto most of the year, not just October?

Breast cancer non-profits rake in about 6 BILLION per year. Too much money is spent on awareness at the expense of research and we are no closer to a cure than we were 20 years ago. (http://www.marieclaire.com/world-reports/news/breast-cancer-business-scams)

The government has segregated the population, separating men from women, to bring their agenda forefront – the GOP’s SO-CALLED WAR ON WOMEN. They have made us the poster child for socialism and continue to kill at least 2000 preborn girls per day in the United States through abortion.

Now, I don’t want to hear about how you or someone you know was touched by breast cancer and that makes this Pepto bath okay. It does not. Breast cancer survivors and victims are being used and abused by the government’s abortion/reproductive health agenda. Planned Parenthood is in cahoots with Susan G. Komen for additional funding for abortions – because interestingly, PP does not have mammography equipment to detect breast cancer:

“The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation reversed its decision and continues to fund breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood health centers….The outpouring of support online for Planned Parenthood and women in need of breast cancer screenings has been nothing short of astonishing, and because of it, the Planned Parenthood Breast Health Fund has received more than $3 million from thousands of people across the country in only three days.” (www.plannedparenthood.org)

And, “Ask your health care provider, health department, or staff at your local Planned Parenthood health center about where you can get a mammogram in your area.” Astonishing, Komen said….3 MILLION in three days they raised….I am astonished that so many women are THAT deceived by Planned Parenthood and this pink agenda they helped create.

Let me say that again: Planned Parenthood does not have mammography equipment to detect breast cancer. Stop giving your money to someone that is using it for something else, like the scheduled murder of unborn children.

Getting back to the pink agenda thing…the nifty pink t-shirt you wear and the pink ribbon on your car is not going to cure one bit of breast cancer. But what you have done is buy into the merchandising part of fundraising – find out where you money really goes before you spend it.

We are so out of balance at this point in history. Consider this: Is a mammogram always the answer?

“A routine mammogram can find cancers that would never have become life-threatening, subjecting women to painful and toxic treatments they never actually needed.” http://articles.latimes.com/2009/aug/17/health/he-breast-overdiagnosis17)

Now, the flip side to that is a woman I knew that was a nurse. She went for her scheduled mammogram and it detected nothing. Very shortly after, she did a self-exam and found a tiny lump that the mammogram did not. She endured a painful double mastectomy. So don’t tell me that getting mammograms is the only way to detect breast cancer in women. I was taught at an early age to always do a self-exam once a month. But we are a desperately spoiled people these days and expect a magical machine to find what is wrong with us so that we don’t have to do anything.

My challenge to you is this: Don’t promote pink, promote LIFE by encouraging women to do self-exams and going to real doctors, not practitioners.

Komen: Evil begets evil.

Why are you so surprised about Komen backing out? Interestingly, there is no reason why Komen and Planned Parenthood should have ever hooked up; senseless. I’m still trying to figure out why this whole Komen phenomenon ever happened in the first place. To my knowledge, there is still the American Cancer Society – if you feel burdened to give money to benefit a cure for cancer, rather than giving your money to baby killers.

So, why did Komen get so big? Major corporations support Komen, such as:

American Airlines, Ask.com, Caribou Coffee Company, Caterpillar, Crayola, Dell, Dots, Evian, Energizer, Ford Motor Company, Forever 21, Georgia-Pacific, Hallmark Gold Crown Stores, Igloo, Hewlett-Packard, Kitchen Aid, La Madeline, Liberty Mutual, Lowe’s Companies, Major League Baseball, Microsoft, NBC Today Show, Nestle Purina PetCare Company, Nordstrom, Old Navy, OPI, Oreck, Otis Spunkmeyer, Pandora Jewelry, Pepperidge Farm, Payless ShoeSource, Redken, REMAX, Sally Beauty, Stein Mart, Walgreens, Yoplait….and my personal favorite…..ZUMBA.

So, each and every one of you that “Zumba’s” at a church, is supporting Planned Parenthood.

That is a partial list. Click here to find more companies and corporations that support Komen who supports Planned Parenthood who kills unborn babies.

Math doesn’t lie. Unborn babies are dying because someone is paying for it.

Girl Scouts, Susan G & Planned Parenthood

When you think of a Girl Scout, you think of camping, cookies and crafts…not learning about stone labyrinths, world peace, global warming, yoga, avatars, smudging incense, Zen gardens along with feminist, communist and lesbian role models….GSUSA upholds a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on sexuality. Nice.

Girl Scouts of the USA makes no attempt to define or interpret the word “God” in the Girl Scout Promise, either.

But here’s the best part…the Girl Scouts of America supports Planned Parenthood. Yes, PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

Much like the lauded Susan G. Komen foundation, their charters and/or councils do support and financially support Planned Parenthood. They make it sound like a bubble of activity but it’s much larger than that.

According to STOPP International, they found relationships between Girl Scout Councils and Planned Parenthood (PP):

  • Any troop in the council inviting PP to speak.
  • Having scouts attend PP events to earn a badge.
  • Co-sponsor Planned Parenthood event.
  • Co-sponsor, with PP, a third-party event.
  • Promotion of a PP event or event with PP participation.
  • PP execs/board members serving on GS board.
  • Giving award to PP executive.

So next time you leave the grocery store and a cute pig-tailed 10 year old looks up at you with freckles and blue eyes and asks you to buy her cookies, say NO! I will not buy cookies that fund abortions!

CRIPES!! You can’t even buy Girl Scout cookies anymore!
