Lila Rose Looking a Little Bit Like Joan of Arc

Komen cuts off funding to Planned Parenthood. Why? Congressional investigations. Why were there Congressional investigations? Lila Rose.

From the Washington Post:

"The Associated Press reports that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation’s leading breast-cancer charity, will cut off its funding to Planned Parenthood affiliates, where the foundation has traditionally paid for preventive screening services.

According to the AP, the move will mean “a cutoff of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, mainly for breast exams.”Planned Parenthood confirms that Komen is the first, and only, organization to cut off funding since the Congress began debating the issue in earnest last winter.

Komen said it could not continue to fund Planned Parenthood because it has adopted new guidelines that bar it from funding organizations under congressional investigation. The House oversight and investigations subcommittee announced in the fall an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s funding...."

We love Lila and her young associates. That's why we have a permanent link to Live Action in the right sidebar.

However, be careful before donating to local Komen affiliates. One of the commenters on calcatholic.com said that the locals are still allowed to give grants to PP, and that indeed, this is what is happening in Orange County.
