Komen vs. Planned Parenthood


Susan G. Komen for the Cure is cutting off its financing of breast cancer screening by Planned Parenthood. http://t.co/mVpW61MmWed Feb 01 12:43:00 via Twitter for Android

So now I'm off to look for a charity that spends less of its revenue suing other charities and more on cancer research. In the meantime, instead of donating to Komen  for the jeans day at work like I've done in the past, that money will go to Planned Parenthood.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the only A+ rated Cancer charity at CharityWatch.

Komen may get a boost from Catholics and other anti-abortion groups, but I suspect their net result is going to be a steep decline in contributions as a result of this decision.
