Manic Monday

Did you know the Susan G. Komen organization donates to Planned Parenthood? I sure didn't, until my husband emailed me the news story about how they're reducing their funding of it by around 10%.

Komen's ties to Planned Parenthood are well documented and figures from STOPP International show Komen chapters giving $711,485 from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2006 to Planned Parenthood affiliates.

And in numbers provided to the Associated Press, Susan G. Komen for the Cure spokeswoman Rebecca Gibson confirmed 19 of the 122 Komen affiliates made grants totaling $374,253 to Planned Parenthood during the 2005-2006 fiscal year.

Figures show Komen affiliates have given Planned Parenthood $3 million between 2003 and 2008 and $805,000 in the 2008 fiscal year.

Never mind the showing that abortions increase breast cancer risks. I guess killing those kids just makes more sense.

A January 2010 study called abortion a "known risk factor" for breast cancer and cited a study conducted by the prestigious Janet Daling group of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.

Daling and her colleagues showed between a 20 and 50 percent increased breast cancer risk for women having abortions compare to those who carried their pregnancies to term.

Interesting. Why would a breast cancer foundation support a thing that helps to create it?

ON ANOTHER NOTE, not political, or touchy!

An Appleton Wisconsin woman has been sentenced to 9 months in jail, and 4 years of probation, after planting a RAT in her lunch at a restaurant!

She pleaded no contest in January to a felony extortion charge and a misdemeanor for obstructing police. She planted the dead animal in her food April 17, 2008, before asking for the money in exchange for keeping quiet about the incident. She threatened to alert the media if the money wasn't paid.

She tried to extort 500,000$ the article said. Also that she was filled with delusions of grandeur.

At the urging of one of their cooks, restaurant owners Bob and Jessica Doller kept the rat after the extortion attempt. Insurance investigators sent it for testing and determined that it was a domestic white rat that had been cooked in a microwave. The restaurant doesn't use microwaves.

Turns out she had bought the rat a few days previously.

I remember that finger fiasco in a cup of Wendy's chili. It really negatively affected the business (but darn that chili is good, I kept getting it!).

Some people are just pathetic.
