SGK changes its stance on supporting Planned Parenthood.

They succeeded only in increasing awareness. Now many people will examine them more critically before donating. More importantly, Planned Parenthood's work in providing general healthcare and cancer screening has been well publicized.

ETA: SGK is now going to feel the rage of the religious right because they've back-pedaled. Somewhat incoherent anger being expressed here.

the thing is, when you come against spirits like Judas & Jezebel, you have to be willing to die. most of these corporations aren't willing to do that...

Um, what?

No man can serve two masters, and all that. They're just going to have to resign themselves to making someone mad, and suck it up.

They've made everyone mad now. And it's not as if they are the only game in town. The crazy thing is they knew there would be problems, but they thought they could keep it quiet. From a NYT article today:

“We didn’t tell anyone except Planned Parenthood,” Mr. Raffaelli said. “We wanted to keep it quiet. We didn’t intend for this to be perceived as a victory for anybody. The whole approach was to not issue press releases to do anything to hurt Planned Parenthood.”

Aw, it was PP they didn't want to hurt!
