Give to Breast Cancer Action, not Komen

The Komen controversy about Planned Parenthood was just the tip of the iceberg as far as I'm concerned, and I am thrilled to link to an op ed on the subject in today's Los Angeles Times by Peggy Orenstein.  I won't repeat what Orenstein eloquently describes.  But while she urges readers to give their breast cancer-related donations elsewhere, she does not name names, and that I will do.

Send your money to Breast Cancer Action.  Its "think before you pink" campaign long predates the recent attention to Komen.  What's more, they fit Orenstein's criteria of a worthy group: not shying away from objectively reviewing the science of screening; aggressively pushing for more investigation into the causes of cancer, including environmental causes; and refusing money from corporations whose policies or products are not good for women's health.

With the rapid advances in knowledge, several techniques were used to create the vagina; however, Dr. Juta”s technique is one of a kind, “The Scarless Sexchange” wherein there will be no visible scar on the labia majora after the operation. Certainly, he is the only doctor performing a high quality SRS “Scarless Sex change” in Thailand today. With Dr. Juta, you can achieve a successful outcome both in appearance and function, and there are far lesser incidents of complications. The goal of Doctor Juta is to create female sexual organs that look as natural as possible and that allow as much sexual arousal as possible.
