How shocking to see the Susan G. Komen Foundation give $650,000 to Planned Parenthood last year, the largest provider of abortions (more than 300,000 in 2010), with annual revenues exceeding $1 billion. At an average of $500, that translates into about $164 million of revenue per year. These donations were expected to fund breast cancer research.

A few years ago, I entered a local restaurant wearing my pink
ribbons and denim in support of Geweke's Pink October fundraising
efforts. The young man behind the counter expressed his pink ribbon
fatigue, admitted he simply did not "get it," and stated he did not
know what the fuss was all about.

The Soroptimist International of Lodi recently selected Theresa
Larson as the Making a Difference for Women Award. This award
acknowledges women who are working to improve the lives of women
and girls through their personal or professional activities. Their
efforts help to promote the issues that are important to the
Soroptimist organization. Honorees are women who have worked in
extraordinary ways to benefit women and girls. The program enables
local Soroptimist clubs and the Soroptimist organization to thank
these women and encourage others to explore ways to assist women
and girls. The program begins on the club level, where the type of
recognition varies. Award winners at the club level are eligible
for additional awards at other levels of the organization.
