Live Action Applauds Komen Defunding of Planned Parenthood; Cites Investigations

In response to the news today that the Susan G Komen foundation has ended their financial grant contributions of nearly $700,000 annually to abortion chain Planned Parenthood, Live Action President Lila Rose made the following statement:

“We applaud Susan G. Komen for its pro-woman decision to end their financial support of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion chain. After a slew of scandals at Planned Parenthood, and the opening of a Congressional investigation, Komen is wise to distance itself from the corrupt abortion giant. In just the last year, Live Action’s undercover footage revealed Planned Parenthood workers in 7 clinics aiding and abetting the sex trafficking of young girls, and Planned Parenthood falsely claiming they provide mammograms to women. In reality, our undercover investigation revealed that not a single Planned Parenthood clinic even has the equipment to do a mammogram. Komen realizes that their money to detect, prevent, and cure breast cancer is better spent elsewhere.

“Planned Parenthood misleads women and the public about the services they provide; but it is clear that behind a thin veneer of “preventative services,” their real focus is abortion. In just the last year, Planned Parenthood was the leading abortion chain in the world, committing over 300,000 abortions, which now account for over 40% of its clinic revenue. Together, we stand with Komen and reject Planned Parenthood’s corruption and extreme abortion-first ideology.”
