this just in-- Komen reversed it's decision to dump planned parenthood.

What a difference a day makes! The Komen foundation got serious pushback from this move to dump funding for Planned Parenthood. donations of more than $1 million poured in to Planned Parenthood emergency cancer screening fund- and several staffers turned in resignations, saying Komen foundation values did not align with theirs.
It seemed the only remaining question was how long before the Komen foundation would reverse the decision…sure enough :
(CNN) — The Susan G. Komen foundation has reversed a controversial decision not to renew funding for some Planned Parenthood projects, the group said in a statement Friday.
“We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women’s lives,” the statement said. “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.”
Planned Parenthood said Tuesday that the foundation had “succumbed to political pressure” by cutting its funding for breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood amid increased scrutiny by Congress over how Planned Parenthood provides abortion services.

Besides that, they have this nifty pink/black gun promo....

The "Hope Edition" gun?


Looks like the Komen foundation shot themselves in the foot on these decisions !

I bet Komen never recovers from this bullshit.
I'd donate to PP instead, to insure their funding, even if Komen did a reversal, it's only because there was such outrage. They showed their true colors, and it ain't pink!
