…for cowardice, an anti-choice slap in the face to poor women—and lawfare against other charities.

How many donors know that their money—a million smackers a year—is being used to persecute small local charities that have dared to use the word “cure” in their names? Since when can you trademark a common English word?

In the US, apparently you can—or at least use a lot of legal muscle to claim you can. Luckily, some charities are standing up to this anti-choice corporate bully.

Not one more cent for the pink ribbon prats who want to prevent women in poverty from getting mammograms: donate to Planned Parenthood instead.

More here and here from the folks at DAMMIT JANET!.
