(Orlando, FL) In a stunning move, three days after making a decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood, the Associated Press today reports that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation today “apologized” and announced it was reversing their decision. After receiving a letter from U.S. Senators, including pro-abortion advocates John Kerry, Al Franken, and others, Komen reversed its decision to stop funding the largest abortion provider in the country.
John Stemberger, President and General Counsel of the Florida Family Policy Council released the following statement today:
“We are deeply disappointed to learn that the Susan G. Komen Foundation has reversed its previous decision and will now continue funding the largest provider of abortions in the America. Planned Parenthood is also a corrupt organization that has been embroiled and exposed in a web of fraud, deceit, and human trafficking. This hasty political move will continue to tarnish the noble mission, image and funding of the foundation and its work. A majority of Americans are pro-life and most will have nothing to do with the organization as a result of this move. We will continue to respectfully appeal to the Komen Foundation to follow through with its original decision to not fund groups under criminal investigation. Planned Parenthood is currently under investigation for Medicaid fraud in Texas and California, for fraudulent reporting and illegal abortions in Kansas, and under federal Congressional investigation. Komen’s credibility and reputation will never be the same as long as they continue their joint venture with Planned Parenthood. Komen should stay focused on saving lives, not supporting the nation’s largest abortion provider.”
