GOP: Competing for the pro-choice 41 percent?

Following the results of last week’s election, here comes the inevitable renewed call to oust pro-life principles from the Republican Party platform.

I almost want to tell the GOP to go ahead. Are pundits really that stupid? Never mind the 2012 Gallup poll, which showed the percentage of pro-“choice” Americans at a historic low…

Do Republicans really want to compete with Democrats for the 41%, leaving the 50% to wander off to a third party? This would be our only option.

The real problem for the GOP establishment is its players fall into one of three camps: terrified of the pro-life issue, Pro-Life in Name Only, or anti-life.

Would that the Republican establishment were to embrace the pro-life majority of their party as tightly as Democrats have embraced the pro-abortion majority of their party. Pictured below is Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, one of many pro-abortion leaders who spoke at the Democrat National Convention. Click to enlarge….

Komen betrayed from within, Part II: The coincidences

Yesterday I described all the players who doomed Susan G. Komen for the Cure from within to lose against Planned Parenthood’s assault when it tried to defund the abortion giant.

Today I will list “coincidences” from Karen Handel’s book, Planned Bullyhood, and also from my interview with her, that give evidence of the Trojan Horse.

Komen betrayed from within, Part I: The players

For 29 years Nancy Brinker and Susan G. Komen for the Cure enjoyed the adoration of the masses. There is no better story than launching an organization to stop breast cancer at the request of one’s dying sister.

Brinker also enjoyed bipartisan political favor as a wealthy Republican who had received appointments from every GOP president since Ronald Reagan and also as a pro-abortion liberal who sat on the board of her local Planned Parenthood, was friends with CEO Cecile Richards, and had received the Medal of Freedom from President Obama.

So it may be no wonder Brinker’s leadership team was totally unprepared for the Left’s assault when they tried to defund Planned Parenthood. They likely had grown to believe their own hype.

Karl Rove, fair weather friend

I have received assurances from a source close to him that Karl Rove is pro-life.

Many may have already assumed this, since Rove worked a heartbeat away from the most pro-active pro-life president our country has seen since President Reagan, although those sleeping a heartbeat away from both, Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan, were pro-abortion. So osmosis is no guarantee.

But Rove did speak at the National Right to Life Convention in 2008, which gave him street cred.

That said, at best Karl Rove is a fair weather friend.

Before I get to Todd Akin and Caroline Kennedy, I want to quote from Karen Handel’s book, Planned Bullyhood, scheduled for release tomorrow.

WashPo notes outgoing Komen CEO’s large salary, ignores Planned Parenthood CEO’s larger salary

Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s founder and CEO is stepping down.

Nancy Brinker is joined on her fall on the sword by her president and two board members, all denying the Planned Parenthood debacle had anything to do with it.

It didn’t have to be this way. They could have stood strong in their decision to defund the United States’ largest abortion provider, but they couldn’t handle the heat.

Since then no one has been happy. While MSM consistently portrays Komen’s loss of revenue as a show of displeasure by abortion proponents, it is just as likely disappointed and previously unaware pro-lifers are now withholding donations.

Per MSM it could only be Planned Parenthood supporters withholding donations from Komen

The mainstream media is reporting that donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure have dropped substantially in the wake of its decision and subsequent reversal to defund Planned Parenthood.

According to MSM, this must be due to disgruntled Planned Parenthood supporters, for instance this March 23 CBS News story:

When Planned Parenthood tried to bully a corporate donor… and lost

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure would have done well to look back at Planned Parenthood’s history of nasty break-ups to get a better handle on what was ahead. Back in the pre-Internet dinosaur days 22 years ago, Planned Parenthood’s tactics may have been different, but its assault was just as grand when it […]
