Komen Foundation Backs Down And Apologises To Planned Parenthood

From NPR: Komen Foundation Now Says It Will Continue Grants To Planned Parenthood:

The Susan G. Komen Foundation just announced it will be providing grants to Planned Parenthood for that organization to use in basic screening and educating women about breast cancer.

…In the statement from CEO Nancy Brinker, Komen also says “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.”

Thanks to Ben Radford and Julia Lavarnway for the news! Despite the fact that it may very well mean that they may change their mind about applications for grants in the future…
