Smart move for Koman

Komen cancer charity halts grants to Planned Parenthood


The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is halting its financial partnerships with numerous Planned Parenthood affiliates. The result is a bitter rift, linked to the national abortion debate, between two iconic organizations that have assisted millions of women. Planned Parenthood says the cutoff, affecting grants for breast exams, results from Komen bowing to pressure from anti-abortion groups. Komen says the key reason is that Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Congress — a probe launched by a conservative Republican who was urged to act by anti-abortion activists.
Comment: Koman is a good organization and this is a good move!
