"Komen has been struggling to repair its reputation since the public backlash over its decision, at the beginning of February, to pull cancer screening grants from Planned Parenthood because some of its clinics perform abortions. Komen ultimately decided to restore Planned Parenthood's eligibility for grants, but the public had already soured on the charity for focusing on abortion politics rather than detecting and treating breast cancer."
According to the left, the trpoubles of the Komen foundation are simply because Americans are not forgiving and still hold it against Komen for trying to defund Planned Parenthood. Unfortunately for the left, the facts tell a somewhat different story.
Komen's current troubles - including the resignations today - are a result of once again funding Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. The majority of Americans oppose funding abortions, as every poll shows. And now contributions to Komen are down big time - and that is directly attributed to donors not wanting to be pparty to abortions.
So yes, Komen is losing money fast. And execs are resigning. But it is not because of any far-left "outcry" by a handful of far-left loons. It is because most donors, like myself, had not been aware that our money was being used for abortions, and now that we know that abortions are being funded, we no longer support Komen. Period.
You can believe whatever you want, but the facts show that Komen is hurting because they DO fund Planned Parenthood.
