Susan G. Komen officials resign in protest

Several top officials of the Susan G. Komen Foundation have resigned in protest over Komen’s withdrawal of grant money from Planned Parenthood. Anger over Komen’s decision has already prompted enough new donations to PP to make up the loss. As for Komen, no amount of money can repair the damage they’ve done to their own reputation; the once-staunch supporter of women’s health sold out.

  1. Good for them and for taking a stand, and shame on the Komen Foundation for bowing to right wing pressure!

  2. I’ve *never* liked Komen, with their commercialized, profit-driven, predatory pink hysteria.
