This really does amuse me:
America\’s largest breast cancer advocacy group has been forced to make a self-abasing retraction of its plan to cut funding for Planned Parenthood following a huge outcry against the decision.
Yes, yes, I know the politics. If you\’re against breast cancer then you\’re in favour of all sorts of wimmins\’ stuff like abortion and freebie contraceptives.
The thing is though, if you were really against breast cancer then you\’d be in favour of all women bringing one pregnancy to term and then breast feeding. For that\’s actually one of the (if not the) greatest risk factor for breast cancer: not having brought to term and breast fed.
So the slogan shouldn\’t be about female choice or anything like that: should instead be you can only kill one if you\’re already got one.
Something of a difficult sell I agree but logic over politics can lead you into some very strange places.
