Subject: Tell Susan G. Komen: Appoint a new board!

Dear Friend,

The fight to defend Planned Parenthood is never over. But yesterday we won another victory when Karen Handel, a Tea Party politician and senior executive at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, resigned.

After Susan G. Komen for the Cure reversed its decision to defund Planned Parenthood, CREDO members called on the organization to fire the Tea Party politician who engineered the attack.

Nearly 50,000 signed the petition and hundreds made phone calls to the Susan G. Komen foundation's headquarters in Dallas, Texas. And that was just days after 400,000 CREDO activists took action in the wake of the organization's attack on Planned Parenthood.

Every time Planned Parenthood is under attack, CREDO and its members are there to mount a fierce defense of the organization. Not only is CREDO the biggest corporate contributor to Planned Parenthood. But our CREDO Action members respond by signing petitions, making phone calls and showing up at protests and rallies every time Tea Party Republicans try to bring the Planned Parenthood down. It's thanks to your continued vigilance that together we are making a difference.

Now it's time for the board members that enabled Handel's campaign to defund Planned Parenthood do the same. The best way to save the Susan G. Komen foundation is to replace the board members who put Tea Party politics before women's health with donors, volunteers, and cancer survivors who have made the organization a global leader in the fight against breast cancer.

I told Susan G. Komen: Appoint new board members who will prioritize the foundation's mission of doing everything possible to fight breast cancer over Tea Party politics. You can sign the petition and get more information at the link below.
