Dear Blog Followers:
This is an art blog and as such I strive to avoid topics that are controversial or that could be construed as political. However I take the recent decision by the Komen Foundation to defund mammograms offered by Planned Parenthood very seriously. My younger sister died much too early from Breast Cancer and it is appalling to see so many more women put at risk by this decision.
Please do whatever your own conscience tells you to insofar as decrying or applauding this decision but please do give the situation some thought as well as the overall impact on women and their health. My hopes are that you will let the Komen foundation know that you think it is an outrage – if indeed that is your conclusion.
Please take a quick look at this graphic (click on link) for some perspective. Thank you very much.
