This blew our minds when we saw it, so to celebrate the release of The Amazing Spiderman, we just had to share: way back in the 1970s, Marvel Comics teamed up with Planned Parenthood on a comic book that pitted Spiderman against a villain who was out to give teens the wrong information about sex. And we all know there’s nothing that Spiderman hates more than the spread of medically inaccurate information! Check it out.
The Decemberists are deeply troubled by Komen for the Cure’s recent decision to cut off funding to Planned Parenthood, a vital resource in the battle against breast cancer. Providing cancer screenings to low income women is integral to the prevention and defeat of breast cancer and it is unconscionable that Komen should politicize this very important issue by bowing to the fear campaign being waged against PP by the right. We’ve decided to redirect the proceeds of the Team Jenny t-shirts and buttons away from Komen for the Cure. 100% of the net profits of these items will be instead donated to Planned Parenthood’s Breast Health Emergency Fund
Please help to support this essential institution. And, if you’ve supported the Team Jenny effort in the past, please write to Komen for the Cure via their site or via twitter (@komenforthecure) and let them know that undermining women’s health for political reasons is unacceptable.
That warm, fuzzy feeling you get when your favorite band supports low income people and the services Planned Parenthood gives them.
Help support Team Jenny and The Decemberists as they give money to Planned Parenthood for the life saving breast exams and mammogram referrals they give by buying the Team Jenny shirt.
