2012-02-03 04:46:54 “bitterly disappointed that Planned Parenthood was using Komen’s decision to raise money” – WTF else should they do???

2012-02-03 01:54:10 @joelhousman I’ll be moving to the east bay, I’m told they get more actual heat, which I’d like.

2012-02-03 01:53:24 @gzicherm I’d like them better if they’d just be honest: “We get more money from the pro-life than pro-choice crowd.”

2012-02-02 18:35:00 @fitzage Those who are stopping their funding of #komen are largely giving it direct to PP instead, looks like.

2012-02-02 18:20:49 @fitzage PP is very often the only option. Those who kept saying on FB that there were other options need to make usable lists of them.

2012-02-02 18:11:31 @fitzage Research is great and necessary. But it doesn’t help an uninsured woman who needs a screening TODAY.
