Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood

Petition against the Susan G. Komen Foundation's decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood's breast cancer screening programs.

What I wrote:

As an obstetrician-gynecologist, I have seen first-hand the devastation of women's cancer, and the importance of screening and early detection and treatment. Your actions are short-sighted, and, at best, cowardly. At worst, they are misogynistic for contributing to the forces that would deny women reproductive freedom. I will never donate another dime to your organization, and I will find other ways to support cancer research, screening, and treatment. Furthermore, I will always support and stand by Planned Parenthood.
