The movie “Pink Ribbons“, which explores breast cancer fundraising by groups like Susan G Komen, is being released tomorrow. Komen’s decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood has been in the works for some time now; one top Komen official quit over it in December.
As Dave suggests, the Komen Foundation had to know “Pink Ribbons”, a decidedly negative take on the breast cancer fundraising industry, was coming out this week. At first blush it would seem like the worst possible time for them to make the public aware of their decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood, given the absolute certainty of a widespread negative response… or is it?
Why would Susan G Komen wait until this week to make this announcement? Because it would be irresponsible not to speculate, have at it in the comments.
Meanwhile, here’s the trailer for “Pink Ribbons”, coming soon (tomorrow) to a theatre near you.
UPDATE: Haha. A girl and her Photoshop go horribly wrong.
