About Time: "Amid abortion debate, Komen cancer charity halting grants to Planned Parenthood"

The nation’s leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is halting its partnerships with Planned Parenthood affiliates — creating a bitter rift, linked to the abortion debate, between two iconic organizations that have assisted millions of women.

Planned Parenthood says it is because Komen is bowing to political pressure. Komen says it is because Planned Parenthood is under investigation.

Either way, I approve.


  1. Blessed be! But I'm afraid it's only temporary. Planned Parenthood won't be under investigation forever and when that is lifted I assume Komen will go back and support them. I hope I'm wrong.

  2. Maybe we should all donate to Koman and include a note saying we are now supporting them because they no longer support PP.

  3. Oh, good idea Debbie! I'm going to push that!
