"How the Susan G. Komen Foundation Lost Its Way"  
"By cutting funding to Planned Parenthood, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has broken its promise. It's shown it values its anti-abortion agenda more than it values its anti-cancer purpose."

This is unbelievable. I am so very disappointed in them as an organization.

If you have the means, I hope you will consider making a contribution to Planned Parenthood so women have a better chance of surviving breast cancer, no matter their economic circumstances.

I saw this today and was appalled. I can't believe they're pulling something like this. Their money wasn't going towards abortions, it was going towards breast cancer screenings. When did it become ok to turn people's health into a political game??

This is what I'm saying!!! I worked in non-profit long enough to know that if the Komen Fdtn awarded grants to Planned Parenthood for breast screening, they are legally and morally obligated to use the money only as allocated.

By withdrawing all funding, you are correct, they are using people's health as a political ploy. And that is all kinds of wrong.
