Susan G. Komen For The Cure

JWA's Greatest Hits: Why I no longer support Susan G. Komen

It is with a heavy heart and an angry mind, that I have raised and donated my last dollar for Komen.

Susan G. Komen halts partnership with Planned Parenthood

Today we learned that Susan G. Komen For The Cure, the nation's leading breast cancer charity, is ending its partnership with Planned Parenthood in a move that will result in a major loss of funding for breast exams at Planned Parenthood. Last year, Komen grants totaling roughly $680,000 were distributed to at least 19 Planned Parenthood affiliates to fund breast exams and other breast-health services.
