Susan G. Komen for the Cure has quietly resumed funding for Planned Parenthood, two months after the leading U.S. breast cancer charity set off an angry and debilitating debate about abortion rights by cutting off funds to the prominent women's health network.
The Dallas-based Komen foundation said on Friday that its local chapters have awarded grants to at least 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates for breast-cancer screenings and breast-health services for the fiscal year that began on April 1.
The grants are comparable in number and dollar value to what Planned Parenthood received last year, when $680,000 in Komen funds helped about 170,000 women, many of them living on low incomes in areas with few healthcare options.
The resumption of grant funding represented a milestone for efforts by the two well-known women's organizations to rebuild their relationship, at a time when Komen faces new financial challenges after angering donors by first cutting funding for Planned Parenthood and then reversing its decision.
Komen fundraisers have struggled to hit donation targets this year in several states including Louisiana, Texas, Arizona and New York.

Premeditated murder is not a right.
O gee who didn’t see that coming?
I’m done with Koman and I’ve told them as much as well.
They seriously didn’t seem to care.
The Liberal holy grail that is abortion trumps all!!
I didn’t even have to ask my wife before she stated that we’re done giving them any money. It’s interesting in that she is not anti-abortion, but she does not tolerate political correctness.
(And she’d easily outdo the Obamaloon in any intellectual pursuit...she has degrees in subjects the idiot in charge couldn’t even spell.)
I did my own research on the web and found out that since 1965, the breast cancer rate in Japan increased by 65%, and by 150% in the US.
This time period corresponds to the introduction and widespread use of the hormone pill, or The Pill.
... and the brains deposited there of innocent children.
No way, no how, will any member of my family support that organization, or eat at any restaurant (e.g., Jersey Mike's Subs) that supports them.
And I will quietly resume no buying anything with a pink ribbon on it.
I’ve been avoiding those silly pink ribbons even before this controversy. Though it sounded like a good cause, I dunno, I just hate anything that seems “faddish”, much like those stupid red ribbons for AIDS awareness.
Now that they have caved to the death ghouls, I will actively avoid any product with those pink labels, ribbons or anything referring to Komen.
