Susan G. Koman halts Funds to Planned Parenthood

It always bugged me that Susan G. Koman for the Cure threw so much money toward Planned Parenthood when there are well-established (but ignored) links between abortion and breast cancer.

Today it was announced that the foundation is halting its grants to Planned Parenthood:

Planned Parenthood says the move results from Komen bowing to pressure from anti-abortion activists. Komen says the key reason is that Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Congress — a probe launched by a conservative Republican who was urged to act by anti-abortion groups.

The rupture, which has not been publicly announced as it unfolded, is wrenching for some of those who’ve learned about it and admire both organizations.

So far, there is only that AP report out there. Will update as more comes in.
