UPDATE:  The Komen Foundation caved under pressure and the bullying tactics of Planned Parenthood and changed their decision to defund Planned Parenthood.  This, of course, is terrible.  Planned Parenthood should not be able to use mob-style tactics to force a grantor to give them funds.

On January 31st, the news broke that the Komen G. Foundation (Race for the Cure) has decided to break monetary ties with Planned Parenthood and stop giving them money.  This is incredible news!!  Of course, Planned Parenthood has stepped onto their bully pulpit as usual and is pounding Komen for their decision. Since when does a grantee attack a grantor for ending donations?!

Pro-lifers need to stand with Komen and thank them for defunding Planned Parenthood!  It’s very simple to send a short email, thanking Komen for their important, ground-breaking decision.

Send them an email–right now–here:  news@komen.org.

You can also sign a petition, thanking Komen here:  www.istandwithkomen.com.

Please take the time to do this.  We know that Planned Parenthood is having their supporters email Komen by the thousands.  While it’s virtually impossible for Komen to change their minds (based on a new rule their organization adopted), they still need to know that we stand with them.  Komen adopted a rule stating that they will no longer fund organizations who are being investigated at a local, state, or federal level.  Congress has a pending investigation into Planned Parenthood, and several states have ongoing investigations as well.  Planned Parenthood is a very corrupt organization that is on its way to an end.
