When Politics and Charity Collide

Last year the leadership of the Susan J. Komen Foundation got political with abortion and similar conservative views. The uproar then- and now- has apparently hurt in the long run as much as the short. This on Yahoo! News last week from the
New York Daily News:

Komen foundation cancels breast cancer walk in 7 cities
It is a shame to see a very successful charity get undermined when political ideology gets in the way of helping people. It is a good example of why Alcoholics Anonymous has as one of its guiding traditions that they not have opinions on any outside issues.
