Not long ago, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation made a principled decision to stop offering grant monies to Planned Parenthood because of their numerous ethics violations (and pending investigations). It was a logical decision as well, given the fact that Susan G. Komen for the Cure seeks to save human life while Planned Parenthood makes its money primarily off the practice of killing human life. The two organizations are seemingly diametrically opposed in principle.
But not a week after that decision, Susan G. Komen for the Cure reversed itself following the threats and onslaught of propaganda from the abortion lobby groups (not that abortion is all Planned Parenthood does, of course...ahem). It was a risky decision given that many Komen supporters had previously been unaware that the abortion giant was getting Komen money to begin with – and they were understandably disgusted by the revelation. Nonetheless, Komen stuck by Planned Parenthood’s side. And now they appear to be paying the price.
On the show today, I invited the Executive Director of the American Family Association of Indiana, Micah Clark, on to talk about a recent Indy Star report that Komen’s support has taken a nose dive in the months since the controversy began. It’s a sad story, but an important one to note.
