Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation - #3626 - Foundation 'Clarifies' Grant-Making Policy - Citizen Link

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOESN'T EVEN PERFORM MAMMOGRAMS, THEY REFER. WHERE DOES THE FOUNDATION'S MONEY REALLY GO? SUSAN G. KOMEN SURRENDERED, IS THIS WHERE YOU WANT YOUR MONEY TO GO?
Just days after earning nationwide applause for severing its ties to Planned Parenthood, the breast cancer charity group Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced Friday it has revised its grant-making policy in a way that will allow the abortion megaprovider to remain eligible for funding. After top board members resigned in protest and more than 50 liberal members of Congress complained, Komen founder Nancy Brinker issued a statement saying the group “will amend the criteria to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political.” ..........The Komen Foundation left unaddressed its other reason for the short-lived announcement that it would no longer fund Planned Parenthood: The abortion seller does not perform mammograms. Instead, it takes the money Komen provides and refers women to other clinics; until today, the Komen Foundation thought it would be more fiducially responsible to fund mammogram providers directly. It is truly unbelievable that the nation’s largest abortion provider has been able to take what has been considered one of America’s most well respected and beloved organizations and demonize it overnight for simply making their grants results-oriented. Planned Parenthood is putting their abortion ideology above the health of women,” said Jeanne Monahan, director of the Family Research Council’s Center for Human Dignity. “What happened this week was nothing short of a Mafia shakedown campaign by Planned Parenthood against the Susan G. Komen Foundation,” he said. “Planned Parenthood told the Komen Foundation ‘Either give us money or we will destroy you.’ They were aided and abetted in this hostage-taking by the mainstream media.“At this point, pro-lifers should cease their support of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We know there are five more Komen grants to Planned Parenthood in the pipeline,” he concluded. “If any more come up, we will know we have lost and Planned Parenthood has won.”  Read entire article........
