We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives.
. . . Our original desire was to fulfill our fiduciary duty to our donors by not funding grant applications made by organizations under investigation. We will amend the criteria to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political. That is what is right and fair.
IMHO, much too little and far too late. The damage has been done, and it's irreparable.
De-fund the Komen Foundation
Morning everyone! In light of the "breaking news" that Komen has reversed its decision: PLEASE WAIT TO CELEBRATE.
The official statement issued was that they will "honor existing grants" (which only means they won't demand the already granted money back) and that PP is free to apply again in the future - to which Handel already stated publicly yesterday that even if they apply again, they are unlikely to give them anymore grants due to much of PP's mammography services being referrals to off-site radiology labs and that they are, quote: "moving away from 'pass-through' services."
