    ...In the last few weeks, the Komen Foundation has begun notifying local Planned Parenthood programs that their breast cancer initiatives will not be eligible for new grants (beyond existing agreements or plans).
    Remember, Cecile Richards is the woman who thinks seeing a baby before having an abortion is "abhorrent."
    Planned Parenthood is trying to blame the Komen decision on political pressure, but really, it's most likely the unethical actions of Planned Parenthood, such as promoting underage sex trafficking, had a bigger impact.

    Or maybe Komen cut funding based on the fact that Planned Parenthood actually doesn't provide mammograms.

    Good for them.

    If you want to support them there are Christ centered pregnancy centers around. We have one in our area that has really helped a lot of women, and they have even opened a branch in another town.

    Komen Gave More Than $569,000 To Planned Parenthood In 2010 which is why my wife and I have refused to contribute. Everytime they would call soliciting I would explain exactly why they were not getting our dollars. Maybe enough of us did that to make a difference.

    For them to have been donating to Planned Parenthood was ludicrous since abortion dramatically increases the incidence of breast cancer. Study after study has shown this. Cancer research is a wonderful cause and would suggest anyone interested check out where the money goes first.

    If Planned Parenthood didn't provide mammograms, what did they provide? Manual breast exams? That's it?? That's their sum total of breast cancer fighting capability? Please - that shows their real focus - babies. Attacks on babies - not taking care of women's health.
