AT LEAST YOU'RE DAMAGING ADULTS, NOT KILLING KIDS:

After Lying About Providing Mammograms, Planned Parenthood Outraged That Breast Cancer Charity Cuts Off Grants (JOHN MCCORMACK, 2/02/12, Weekly Standard) 

Last spring, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards went on CNN and claimed that if Congress cut off funding to Planned Parenthood "millions of women are going to lose access, not to abortion services, to basic family planning, you know, mammograms." But as pro-life activist Lila Rose documented in a video, Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms.  [...]

"Wherever possible, we want to grant to the provider that is actually providing the lifesaving mammogram," [Nancy Brinker, founder and CEO of Komen foundation] said. 


Komen's Planned Parenthood decision all about politics (Lori Stahl, 2/02/12, Washington Post)

Brinker, a longtime GOP donor who was ambassador to Hungary under then-President George W. Bush, received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama in 2009. She has cast Komen as above politics, saying its focus is women's health.

But the decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood comes shortly after Komen unveiled a new partnership that strengthens its ties to the George W. Bush Institute. The institute is the policy-making arm of Bush's presidential library, which is scheduled to open in Dallas next year.

Thanks, W!
