Looks like I'll be making my donations directly to PP for breast cancer screening.

Same here! PP all the way! They provide so much health care on a sliding scale. I fully support Planned Parenthood and will continue to do so. :)

PP appears to be reaping benefits from this decision. Planned Parenthood says Komen decision causes donation spike

Donors reacting to the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s decision to cut off funding to Planned Parenthood contributed $650,000 in 24 hours, nearly enough to replace last year’s Komen funding, Planned Parenthood executives said Wednesday.

The organization had raised more than $400,000 from more than 6,000 online donors as of Wednesday afternoon, compared with the 100 to 200 donations it receives on an average day, said Tait Sye, a spokesman for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. He said donations were still coming in.

On the local news they had 2 breast cancer survivors who had officially requested their donations back. People really are angry around here. We all know that this investigation is nothing but a political ploy.

Apparently they are reversing their decision! IF it had been a valid case, but it so obviously politics. Still, I know several people who have pulled out of the 3 day walk who are still staying out because they now wonder what Komen may do next.

After reading both if the articles, I won't be donating any funds to Komen in the foreseeable future. My funds will now go directly to PP.
