Susan G.Komen Reverses Decision

(Las Vegas) In a sudden change of heart the Susan G. Komen foundation reversed it’s decision to pull grant funding from Planned Parenthood. The breast cancer organization said it would not fund any group under investigation. Planned Parenthood is under investigation by a Florida congressman who wants to know if federal dollars were used for Planned Parenthood’s abortion services. Annnette Magnus of the Southern Chapter of Planned Parenthood told KXNT that the organization has plenty of backers. “We notified supporters that this was going to take place and instead they (Komen Foundation) reversed the decision which we’re very happy about.” Magnus also mentioned that 97% of what Planned Parenthood does is preventive. “Things like breast exams, pap smears, mammograms in some instances. We also have men’s services, things like testicular exams to make sure men don’t have cancer.” Komen released a statement stating”the preseumption that the changes made in our funding criteria were done for political reasons or to specifically penalize Planned Parenthood. They were not.”

    Komen kept more than 80% of all donations for itself. Komen was little more than a Right Wing money scam, ripping off donors across the political spectrum. Good riddance!
