Komen Splits w/Planned Parenthood

A prominent cancer-treatment foundation is ending its work with Planned Parenthood, a decision Planned Parenthood called "deeply disturbing and disappointing." The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation has broken off a partnership through which it provided cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood clinics, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. Planned Parenthood blamed the political controversy over abortion. “We are alarmed and saddened that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation appears to have succumbed to political pressure. Our greatest desire is for Komen to reconsider this policy and recommit to the partnership on which so many women count,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America/Sam Baker, The Hill.
