If there's a blow up or a controversy, it's always someone ELSE'S fault? Karen Handel, the former senior vice president of public policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, accused Planned Parenthood of extortion during an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Network. The charity faced a public backlash after the Associated Press learned that it was halting their partnership with Planned Parenthood because of recently adopted criteria prohibiting grants to organizations under local, state, or federal investigation. Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) had called for an investigation of Planned Parenthood to ensure that no public funds had been spent to carry out abortions. Its clear that Planned Parenthood proactively went to [the Associated Press], Handel said. On top of that, what is even more disturbing is the gross mischaracterization of the decision, the solid evidence that this was a premeditated, orchestrated attack on a breast cancer organization. Karen Handel: Planned Parenthood ‘orchestrated attack’ on Komen charity | The Raw Story This "woman" gets on the Komen board, pushed her anti-abortion agenda and the public doesn't like it, so OBVIOUSLY the PRESS soured the public on Komen's decision. How far out of reality do you conservatives live? No controversy. Pull funding for PP. Controversy. CONZ conclusion? The decision was not the cause of the controversy.
