Local reaction to Komen decision to restore Planned Parenthood funding

Local women’s health activists cheered the news that Susan G. Komen for the Cure had reversed its recent decision to no longer issue breast cancer prevention grants to Planned Parenthood. The breast cancer charity was harshly criticized this week by breast cancer survivors, members of Congress, and even their own affiliates in New England and elsewhere for playing politics with women’s health.

Komen -- which sponsors walks and races to raise money for breast cancer research -- initially said it halted the grants because Planned Parenthood was under investigation by Congress and the charity’s policy is not to issue grants to organizations being investigated.
