Komen Splits w/Planned Parenthood

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.
