Karen Handel to speak in Rochester

February 13th, 2013, Promulgated by Monk

The Women’s Care Center is sponsoring a talk by Karen Handel, author of the bestselling book Planned Bullyhood.
The Center has served thousands of Rochester women involved in unplanned pregnancies since 1990.


For Immediate Release:

Author and Former Susan G. Komen Executive to Speak Feb. 21
Karen Handel to discuss the controversy between Komen and Planned Parenthood

ROCHESTER, N.Y.—Karen Handel, former senior vice president of public policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure and author of the book Planned Bullyhood, will speak at 7 pm on Thursday, Feb. 21 in the Coleman Chapel inside Murphy Hall at St. John Fisher College.

Handel will discuss her experiences surrounding the controversy between Komen and Planned Parenthood. In Planned Bullyhood, Handel provides an inside look at the politics behind the decision of the two organizations to part ways, those closely involved with the decision, and how Komen eventually folded—giving in to Planned Parenthood. She details how Komen—an organization known for supporting women’s health and being at the forefront of the battle against breast cancer—has been nearly destroyed, with its brand in grave peril. Handel will also address the tactics that she believes Planned Parenthood used to attempt to subert the pro-life movement in today’s society.

Tickets are $15 for the general public, $10 for senior citizens, and free for college students who present a college ID.
All proceeds will go towards supporting the work of the Women’s Care Center.

    Great… Thanks for sharing. I hope there is a good turn out!

    In all the years the center was operational, they got not one dime of support from the DOR. Instead, the diocese gave their support to Birthrite. The woman’s center was Catholic. Birthrite was not. I think the reason for no support was that the Woman’s Center was opposed to contraception. Over 20 years of sticking it into their face.

    Richard, I’m on the Board of the Women’s Care Center. To be honest, Bishop Clark has been generous in donating personal money just about every year. Can’t say the same for the DOR.
