Fewer people registering for Susan G. Komen races
Result of polarizing groups
I read the article addressing the smaller field of runners in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. [“Fewer people registering for Susan G. Komen races,” seattletimes.com, April 19.]
I was also personally disappointed in the Susan G. Komen’s position on dropping funding for Planned Parenthood, as well as its flip-flop position several weeks later. It is very important in our society that we do not polarize groups or individuals based on race, economics, religion or social preference.
The article was spot on with its writing on the effects that have happened on the Komen organization. They took a position that is retrospect to the American belief that all people are entitled to rights and social benefits that our forefathers established when we created our Constitution.
Being born a Catholic, dealing with “Catholic guilt” and understanding the realities of our world and our country, Planned Parenthood, in my opinion, is a phenomenal organization that helps people in time and need.
