Komen cuts Planned Parenthood funding

The Susan G. Komen for the cure was going to cut its $680 thousand for Planned Parenthood that would give uninsured and poor women breast care and mammograms.

The Susan G Komen Foundation said it didn't give money to foundations that are under investigation.

Rep Cliff Stearnes R Florida is trying to determine if Planned Parenthood used taxpayer money for abortions.

But there was so much public criticism that the Susan G. Komen foundation decided to give Planned Parenthood their money.

CEO of the Komen Foundation, Nancy Brinker, said on Friday, "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."
