One of the easiest telephone calls I would get as spokesman for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops was the call about Komen. Easy in the sense that the issues were clear. Susan G. Komen for the Cure gives money to Planned Parenthood. If you don't want your money to be given to the nation's largest abortion provider, don't give it to Komen.
Criticizing major players on both sides, former Susan G. Komen for the Cure vice president Karen Handel has written a blistering insider's account of the prominent cancer charity's decision to halt grants to Planned Parenthood and its swift retreat in the face of an intense, widespread backlash.
Criticizing major players on both sides, Karen Handel, former vice president of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, has written a blistering insider's account of the prominent cancer charity's decision to halt grants to Planned Parenthood and its swift retreat in the face of an intense, widespread backlash.
The president and the founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure are stepping down, the nation's largest breast cancer foundation said in announcing a major leadership shake-up. The high-profile departures come amid continuing fallout from Komen's decision earlier this year to briefly end funding for Planned Parenthood.
The vice president of public policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure who backed the breast cancer charity's move to strip Planned Parenthood of funding resigned Tuesday, saying the now-abandoned decision "has unfortunately been turned into something about politics."
Supporters are rallying around Planned Parenthood after renowned breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure decided to cut breast screening grants to the reproductive health organization.
The renowned breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure faced an escalating backlash Thursday over its decision to cut breast screening grants to Planned Parenthood. Some of Komen's local affiliates are openly upset, including all seven in California, and at least one top official has quit, reportedly in protest.
Nancy Brinker, the former U.S. chief of protocol, has kept a promise to her late sister for three decades. Ms. Brinker has raised the profile of the fight against breast cancer to a global cause with annual fundraising races and dinners like the one hosted by the ambassador of Kuwait and his wife last week in Washington.
Last week, Komen's founding CEO, Nancy Brinker, announced she was stepping down.
As for her changed role, Ms. Brinker said she assumed the chief executive's duties at the request of the foundation's board in 2009.
