Meet Karen Handel, Senior Vice President of Public Policy FAIL. It’s just malicious gossip that Handel promised to end funding for Planned Parenthood well before the Stearns congressional hearing began. Gossip like this:

“I will be a pro-life governor who will work tirelessly to promote a culture of life in Georgia. … I believe that each and every unborn child has inherent dignity, that every abortion is a tragedy, and that government has a role, along with the faith community, in encouraging women to choose life in even the most difficult of circumstances. …since I am pro-life, I do not support the mission of Planned Parenthood.” [Signed, Karen Handel]

[She] “promised to eliminate funding for breast and cervical cancer screenings provided by” Planned Parenthood, according to Jezebel.

  1. Bless you. I’d seen that tweet earlier and kept thinking I should post about it.

      As far as I can tell, she’s in like Flynn, Jo. The Komen Foundation–I understand that CEO Nancy Brinker is Susan Komen’s sister–has been deliberately subverted, taken over by right-wing extremists.
