Susan G. Komen Foundation No Longer Funding Planned Parenthood

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, one of the largest nonprofits fighting breast cancer, announced yesterday that they will no longer give funding to Planned Parenthood. In response, Planned Parenthood accused the foundation of giving into political pressure.

Planned Parenthood is currently under investigation for allegedly using federal dollars for abortions, and anti-abortion groups have recently targeted Komen for its connection with Planned Parenthood.

Support from Komen—including the $650,000 they granted to Planned Parenthood last year—has helped at least 170,000 women receive breast cancer exams in the past five years through the organization.
