At least five high-ranking executives with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity have resigned in the aftermath of the organization's decision, promptly rescinded, to eliminate its funding for Planned Parenthood.
The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is halting its partnerships with Planned Parenthood affiliates _ creating a bitter rift, linked to the abortion debate, between two iconic organizations that have assisted millions of women.
The country is awash in pink for breast cancer awareness month _ and some women are sick of it.
Komen spokeswoman Leslie Aun said she could not speak to individuals' reasons for leaving, but acknowledged the effects of the furor among supporters.
She said her decision wasn't "predicated by any one event," but that actions by national headquarters affected her thinking.
