Susan G. Komen caved in to politics.
Within an article about SGK and Planned Parenthood I read this:
"At the heart of this issue is the shameful investigation of Planned Parenthood by House Republicans trying to score political points and appease their extreme right-wing base. Komen should not allow these sort of partisan games to put women across America at risk."
I am sick that SGK felt the pressure to back down.
It's their policy to withdraw support from any organization that is under government investigation ... and Planned Parenthood is under investigation.
Do your investigating Republicans.
As Senator Patty Murray said "Politics is again coming between women and their health care needs."
In the meantime ...
I will be lacing up my sneakers and walking another 60 miles in November.
I hope you will join me.
Susan G. Komen has made an enormous difference in the war against breast cancer.
I continue to support Susan G. Komen.
