Looks like Komen is still losing support:
Two years ago St. Louis participation in the annual [Race For The Cure] hit a record of more than 71,000.
Three days before Saturday’s 14th annual race, around 44,000 have signed up to take part.
Via AoSHQ, via LifeNews. The race managed to get participation up to 51,000 or so – still significantly less than last year’s – and the organizers have put a brave face on this, but I submit that this still at least hints at the possibility that Komen has successfully damaged its brand with pro-life women in its rush to appease professional pro-choice groups. Which is stupid, given that such appeasement clearly has not improved Komen’s participation and fundraising numbers… but God forbid that any group that ever contributed to abortion services in any way, shape, or form ever be allowed to shut down the spigot.
PS: A suggestion for anybody out there who went off on Komen for eliminating PP funding; less back-patting, and more cutting checks for Komen to make up for the loss in revenue. You broke it; you bought it.
Or… was it really about keeping minority birth rates down, after all?
