Komen Cuts Planned Parenthood Grants Months After Arrival Of New VP, Who Is Abortion Foe
Over the past five years, the Komen organization has given Planned Parenthood health centers the funds to provide nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams to low-income and uninsured women. But now, amid pressure from anti-abortion lawmakers and organizations, Komen has made the decision to cut off hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to Planned Parenthood.
What do you think about this decision by the Susan G Komen organization? Does it change your opinion of the organization as a whole? Do you think the organization will lose donations (about 90% of which comes from the public) based on this change? Should one person's personal beliefs be able to take away a service which helps so many who are unable to get these screenings without PP?
