Komen Reverses PP Decision

After three days of controversy, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer charity says it is reversing its decision to cut breast-screening grants to Planned Parenthood. “We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives,” a Komen statement said. As first reported by The Associated Press on Tuesday, Komen had adopted criteria excluding Planned Parenthood from grants because it was under government investigation, notably a probe launched in Congress at the urging of anti-abortion groups. Komen said Friday it would change the criteria so it wouldn't apply to such investigations/Associated Press. More here. (AP file photo of Nancy Brinker, founder and CEO of Susan G.
