The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation has funded some 170,000 breast exams at Planned Parenthood in the last five years. But no more. And Komen ain't talkin' about it. Planned Parenthood has always been controversial in some sectors, and CNN reports: In September, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce began an investigation of Planned Parenthood over the organization's "compliance with federal restrictions on funding abortions."
In a letter sent to Planned Parenthood, the committee asked the group to provide information on how it segregates family planning from abortion services, as well as its policies on reporting cases of sexual abuse, rape and sex trafficking.
Just too much controversy for Nancy Brinker, Komen founder, to handle. More here: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/31/susan-g-komen-drops-funding-for-planned-parenthood/
