Why Did Komen Stop Funding Planned Parenthood?… They Don’t Do Mammograms. Period.

Now we know…
There was a simple reason why the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure stopped funding the Planned Parenthood abortion group.
They don’t do mammograms.

But this hasn’t stopped the democrat-media complex from attacking the women’s group.

LifeNews reported:

During a conference call with reporters this afternoon, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure CEO Nancy Brinker and President Elizabeth Thompson revealed the main reason why the Planned Parenthood abortion business lost its funding. It doesn’t do mammograms.

“It was nothing they were doing wrong,” Brinker explained. “We have decided not to fund, wherever possible, pass-through grants. We were giving them money, they were sending women out for mammograms. What we would like to have are clinics where we can directly fund mammograms.”

She added, later in the day on Twitter:, saying the money “will be invested in programs to serve low-income, uninsured and underinsured women.”

“Our Board approved new grants standards to improve direct services to women,” she said. “New grants standards strive for grants that provide direct services and outcomes. We have to put metrics, outcomes and measures to our grants so we can translate the science we’ve funded over 30 yrs. We will continue to provide services to vulnerable populations with care, treatment and screening.”

“We’ve decided not to fund pass-through grants. What we would like is to have clinics where we can directly fund mammograms,” she added.

    7 weeks ago, I had a lumpectomy as I have breast cancer. The hospital I went to for the mammogram had a breast cancer dept and it was all funded by AVON cosmetics. Maybe the Komen foundation should get in touch with AVON.

    I don’t trust Komen.

    Quite a reasonable reason there for why pass-through funding of PP was stopped. Reason and logic is not a part of the Progressive DNA, the agenda is to be shoved through no matter what.

    That is, of course, your prerogative. I, on the other hand, trust PP even less than you trust Komen.

    Komen has become just another big greedy corporation, IMO. Would love to see the salary and wealth that Mrs. Brinker enjoys courtesy of your donations. For all of the BILLIONS of dollars that have run through this foundation, has there been any significant discoveries to help fight breast cancer? One would expect some groundbreaking treatments from all of the years and the dollars. Has the mortality rate decreased significantly?

  • Blackbird

    And for that they have 22 Senators, Joe Biden, Moveon.org and the entire liberal smear and destroy machine pointed straight at their faces and opening fire. I can not imagine how this could possibly end well for them to attack an organization that is as well known and loved within their own circles with this much overkill. As far as I can tell this is simply the enemy making a terrible unforced blunder. If we are lucky even the sheep will start to notice how indiscriminate they have become with their character assassination machine.

  • Blackbird

    I guess at the end of the day the only people liberals hate more than those that refuse to come onto their plantation are those that try and leave. Some things never change.

  • RKae

    Gee, one would think a good reason for Komen to strop funding Planned Butchershop is because abortion is a cause of breast cancer. But no, we get “It was nothing they were doing wrong.”


  • Sasja

    Our area hospitals provide free mammograms at certain times during the year. Never would I have thought to go to PP to get access to this procedure.

  • Patty

    The Susan B. Komen foundation has helped many women, I am quite sure of this. But when I found out they funded Planned Parenthood I was surprised and mad. Saving lives from breast cancer is admirable. Abortions aren’t. So, this is how I am thinking of this whole thing.

    I do feel a bit better but really is odd, now, at this time they stop funding. Something more is going on and I do believe that one possibility would be abortions cause cancer. It could be true.

    Planned Parenthood Ad Defends Obama Admin Religious-Employer Contraception Mandate

  • skeptical

    Most cancer screenings are done without mammogram equipment.

  • Patty

    Seems Pelosi, Obama and Bloomberg are big supporters of Planned Abortion Parenthood.

    Who would have thought? (sarc)

  • Patty


    Same here

  • Tjexcite

    When you compare Mitt to the billionaire former republican now Mayor of NYC who is the most conservative. The one running or the one who donated 250K to Planned Parenthood.

  • porthuronpunk

    I’m confused. Is this action taken by Komen, George Bush’s fault or is it because Komen is racist/homophobic/anti-immigration? With PP and it’s supporters attacking Komen, does that mean PP now supports breast cancer? It is so very hard to keep up with the twisted logic of progressives and their causes.

  • Patty

    Planned Parenthood donations in light of Komen are UP 100%

  • Patty

    Doesn’t seem to matter now what Komen does….they got their money in donations by others who want to see abortions the going trend in America.

  • RedstateRed

    This will come as a shock, but not only do they not perform mammograms, Planned Abortion Parentood’s president lied about it.

  • Patty


    Right, and funded Abortions have not been taken out of Obama care. That may not be a surprise either.

    When some denied God then they will lie, cheat and steal to get what they want. Seriously, has any of the liberals ever done what is normal and good for anyone?
