Now, Susan G. Komen has apparently bowed to purely political pressure from abortion activists and seemingly reversed course. Well, actually, all they really said was they would allow Planned Parenthood to continue to apply for grants. I suppose whether Komen will actually fund those grants remains to be seen.
Komen had previously explained that they had decided to redirect their Planned Parenthood funding to those who actually provide mammogram services (Planned Parenthood does not). This would have provided women with better and more efficient breast cancer screening services.
We can only hope that Komen does the right thing and continues to focus exclusively on how best to address breast cancer concerns without pandering to the purely political abortion activists and their bloated sacred cow (Planned Parenthood).
