    services are wide ranging. Less than 1 percent are abortions. So what we see here is a group willing to stop support for 99 percent of what a group does because of 1% they don't agree with. That is just stupid.

    And, as Lowes saw when they pulled advertising for a TLC show about American Muslims, the group that got them to do this was one person. They didn't represent the "community" as a whole and they had a lot of egg on their faces.

    My gut is that will happen here. That there are us here. A lot of moderate soccer moms. Others that will find this very offensive. Maybe they don't voice their opinions that often, but they will now and Komen's will be walking back this stance 24/7. I am almost surprised it hasn't already happened.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      abhorrently hateful.

      I think your gut is right too about the egg on their faces for the lousy way they handled and are handling this.

      Let's see how events unfold.  Can hardly wait to read another press release from SGK with their hem-in-nah, hem-in-nah, hem-in-nah walkback.
