Komen for the Cure Ditches Planned Parenthood
Susan G. Komen for the Cure has made the decision to stop providing grants to Planned Parenthood. The grants which totaled roughly $680,000 last year and $580,000 the year before, went to at least 19 Planned Parenthood affiliates for breast-cancer screening and other breast-health services.
Planned Parenthood says Komen caved in to anti-abortion bullies. Komen says that Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Congress, a probe launched by a conservative Republican who was urged to act by anti-abortion groups, and they just changed their rules to not grant organizations under investigation.
It saddens me that once again women have become pawns in a political game and that women will not be able to get cancer prevention screenings because of some grandstanding congressional jackass who has an axe to grind.
