Susan G. Komen Decision on Planned Parenthood Sparks Backlash

Hosted by

Since 1982, the Susan G. Komen Foundation has helped bring down breast cancer rates, in part with support for mammograms conducted by Planned Parenthood. Now, Komen has cut that funding, saying that it has done so because that group is "under investigation." The decision has sparked a backlash and, in reaction, Planned Parenthood received $650,000 from other donors in just 24 hours.
