They did WHAT?
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Foundation just announced that it will stop funding Planned Parenthood’s
lifesaving breast cancer screenings. Why? Because of political pressure from congressional
conservatives and anti-choice extremists.
Planned Parenthood is often the only provider of
health care services for low-income and underserved women. Komen’s support for Planned Parenthood has provided
nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams and referrals for more than 6,400
mammograms in just the last 5 years. These
cancer detection and prevention programs save lives, plain and simple.
Komen’s decision is an outrageous surrender
to anti-choice extremists. The far-right has
relentlessly targeted anyone supporting women’s health programs, and it's
It’s shameful that a foundation
supposedly dedicated to saving lives would bow to the far-right on a life and
death issue like breast cancer screenings.
At this critical moment, we must stand with Planned
Parenthood against these unconscionable attacks on women’s health. Sign
our petition to the Komen Foundation calling on them to reject anti-choice
extremists and resume funding Planned Parenthood!
