Public Pressure causes Komen to drop plan to cut Planned Parenthood grants

After several days of controversy and a host of resignations, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer charity has decided it is reversing its decision to cut breast-screening grants to Planned Parenthood.
The Koman organization received such a backlash from supporters of Planned Parenthood and also insiders in the Komen foundation that the only option was to reverse the initial decision.
“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,” a Komen statement said..
“We will continue to fund existing grants, including those of Planned Parenthood, and preserve their eligibility to apply for future grants.”
