At any rate, there's little I can say that hasn't already been said very well by many other people - this is some fucking outrageous bullshit, it is demonstrating yet again that anti-choicers do not deserve the moniker "pro-life" because they don't give a shit about any kind of life other than the fetal kind, etc. What I can do, however, is make available some links I've seen in various places, so that if you had been donating to Komen, or were inclined to make a statement by starting your breast-cancer-fight donations with someone else because of this, you will have a list of alternatives. I know that Komen's vastness and extremely effective pinkwashing efforts have made them often the *only* visible target for people who want to give to this cause, and a lot of people wouldn't begin to know where to look for alternative orgs, so here you go. In no particular order:
- Directly to Planned Parenthood's Emergency Breast Care Fund
- African American Breast Cancer Alliance
- National Breast Cancer Foundation
- Breast Cancer Research Foundation
- Living Beyond Breast Cancer
- Breast Cancer Network of Strength
Special thanks to Bebinn on Tumblr, and the rest of the feminist Tumblr community for the various posts and reposts of links I saw today and from which I collected these.
