This film urges us to look hard at what charities like Komen are really saying about breast cancer, those who have it and the companies trying to "pinkwash" themselves, insulating themselves from criticism.
Frankly, I am tired of this controversy. It's a private matter for women and those she chooses to share with. The laws in this country are not dictated by religious beliefs, no matter how powerful the beliefs of those running for public office.
It's been another bad week for the GOP, because of yet more Hail Marys: the Susan G. Komen for the Cure pink ribbon flap, defunding Planned Parenthood, and, consequently, the women of America reacting and Komen's decision eventually reversed.
Handel's continued presence as a leader at Komen threatens to undo all of the work they do on behalf of women and breast cancer awareness -- even if the effectiveness of that work is under legitimate scrutiny.
The Planned Parenthood flap will come and go in a couple of news cycles -- instructive, but ultimately harmless. But if the gains for women in the Affordable Care Act go down with the ship, it may take decades to get them back, if we can get them back at all.
