daily beast reports:

Meanwhile, in the 24 hours after Komen announced its decision, Planned Parenthood raised $400,000 in online donations from outraged supporters. The Amy and Lee Fikes Foundation donated $250,000 to a new Planned Parenthood “Breast Health Emergency Fund.” Komen’s Connecticut affiliate publicly objected to the new policy, writing on its Facebook wall, “Susan G. Komen for the Cure Connecticut enjoys a great partnership with Planned Parenthood, and is currently funding Planned Parenthood of Southern New England. We understand, and share, in the frustration around this situation.” The Denver Komen affiliate said it planned to continue grants to Planned Parenthood despite the national policy.
