    Komen Foundation reverses funding decision of Planned Parenthood - CNN.com


    (CNN) -- Faced with a deluge of opposition that included pressure from lawmakers and internal dissent, one of America's leading breast cancer advocacy groups on Friday reversed itself on a decision that would have cut off funding to some Planned Parenthood projects.

    "We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives," the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation said in a statement. "We will continue to fund existing grants, including those of Planned Parenthood, and preserve their eligibility to apply for future grants, while maintaining the ability of our affiliates to make funding decisions that meet the needs of their communities."

    The group's earlier decision not to renew part of its longstanding partnership with Planned Parenthood, which operates hundreds of family clinics that perform abortions, triggered strong emotions across the country. It provoked objection even from some of its own affiliates...

    Komen really lost. Too bad. Anyone who donates to Komen donates to Planned Parenthood. It's time to stop believing they are interested in breast cancer when they are really just another front group for abortionists.

    Fortunately those that did donate because of the opposition are now asking for their money back.

    Komen gets the award for the worst public relations fiasco in modern times. They pissed off the left, they pissed off the right, they ruined their own fundraising.

    Meanwhile, they helped Planned Parenthood raise 420M dollars - and reminded everyone that Planned Parenthood does a LOT more for women's health than provide abortion services.

    Oh for fuck's sake! Did I really type 420M? 420K, not 420M. My apologies.

    It was the amount they raised in the 24 hour period after the Komen announcement. I can't recall where I read it.

    Komen damaged themselves FOREVER because of this. They raked in a ton of money by standing up for breast cancer treatment. Now the donor want their money back and future donors will withhold money from Komen in the future.

    Good job.
