Komen admits Planned Parenthood funding cut was politically motivated, half backtracks on future funding

Komen revises funding policy – The Washington Post

“Our original desire was to fulfill our fiduciary duty to our donors by not funding grant applications made by organizations under investigation,” a Friday statement said. “ We will amend the criteria to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political. That is what is right and fair.”

“We will continue to fund existing grants, including those of Planned Parenthood, and preserve their eligibility to apply for future grants, while maintaining the ability of our affiliates to make funding decisions that meet the needs of their communities,” the statement continues.

The statement left some ambiguity, however, because it did not mention a second reason Komen has given for ending Planned Parenthood’s funding: That the group did not provide direct mammogram services but instead referred patients to other providers.

Rest assured, the forces that want to keep women ignorant and subservient will not rest until we return to the pre-choice era.  They do not care about collateral damage, in their eyes, millions of actual real women could die and it would still be worth it to control the rest.
