The nation's leading breast cancer charity is changing its decision to withhold funding from Planned Parenthood. Susan G. Komen for the Cure is reversing course after a flood of internet criticism the past three days. It had cut grants to the group, because it was under government investigation. The charity says that policy will now only apply to criminal investigations. Planned Parenthood is elated low income women can once again get help.
Amy Jacobson – Planned Parenthood: “To be honest, this is really a big thing for women because now women can continue to the really lifesaving cancer screenings that they need.”
Supporters of Planned Parenthood signed petitions and even donated three million dollars since the story broke, some of that from North Dakota and Minnesota.
