Komen Foundation Defunds Planned Parenthood
The breast cancer research foundation Susan G. Komen for the Cure has announced that it will no longer provide grants to Planned Parenthood for breast cancer screenings services. The Komen foundation had been providing Planned Parenthood, an abortion provider, with significant grants since 2005. The grants have been rescinded due to a new rule the Komen foundation adopted preventing them from funding organizations under congressional investigation. Planned Parenthood is currently under investigation for how it spends and reports money. Read the full story here in the New York Times. You can thank the Komen foundation for the work they do to promote women's health in a way that no longer supports the destructive work of Planned Parenthood by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
