Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood

Susan G. Komen for the Cure has buckled under pressure from pro-abortion activists and slaughterhouse Planned Parenthood.

From FOX News:

Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced Friday it was reversing its decision to end grants to Planned Parenthood, after facing mounting pressure from pro-choice lawmakers and accusations that the breast cancer awareness organization had bowed to political influences.

"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 group said in a statement.

The statement from Komen founder Nancy Brinker and the Board of Directors defended the organization's intentions. The group has claimed all along that its decision was not a political one and that it was merely setting responsible standards for grant money.

"The events of this week have been deeply unsettling for our supporters, partners and friends and all of us at Susan G. Komen. We have been distressed at the presumption that the changes made to our funding criteria were done for political reasons or to specifically penalize Planned Parenthood. They were not," the group said.

Komen announced that it would change that criteria. Originally, Planned Parenthood was disqualified because of criteria that barred funding to groups that are under investigation -- Planned Parenthood is being probed by a Republican Florida congressman. Going forward, Komen will not count "political" investigations.

"Our original desire was to fulfill our fiduciary duty to our donors by not funding grant applications made by organizations under investigation. We will amend the criteria to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political. That is what is right and fair," the group's leadership said, adding that it would continue to fund Planned Parenthood grants and preserve the group's eligibility for future grants.

The move is sure to draw heated complaints from anti-abortion groups, which applauded Komen for its original decision earlier this week.

If anyone has any doubt that pro-abortion activists are ruthless and unforgiving, the events of this week should put those doubts to rest.

Komen not only reversed its decision but disgracefully grovels in its apology to Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion allies.

It's extremely unfortunate that Komen has decided to actually CHANGE ITS POLICIES just to satisfy the very vocal pro-abortion crowd.

Komen has lost all credibility. The group is in bed with the largest abortion mill in the country. It bowed to the almighty Planned Parenthood.

So much for caring about women's health.

I guess one way to prevent disease in women is to kill them in the womb.

Way to go, Komen!

Bottom line:

Komen = Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood = Slaughter of the unborn

When you see that Komen pink ribbon and its logo plastered all over products in department stores and on supermarket shelves, think of the group bowing to murderers.
