Is the Susan G. Komen foundation pro-choice? I have heard they are abortion supporters

Komen does not have an official stance on abortion. The Planned Parenthood decision was not well explained. Their intention was to fund the clinics directly that PP refers their patients to. However, it is up to each individual Affiliate to decide if PP meets their grant criteria if/when they should apply for a grant. Most Affiliates have never received a grant request from their local PP clinic. When they do fund PP, they money is given to them in the form of vouchers to third-party clinics so that patients who need further testing after a clinical exam at a PP clinic can receive that testing (ie. mammogram, ultrasound, biopsy).

The Susan G. Komen has never supported abortion. This is a Cancer foundation organization helping woman throughout the world get through and battle with breast cancer ♥

This is silly. everyone is pro choice and everyone is pro life. You are either for or against abortion. And in regards to "their" views, that doesn't reflect the views of their staff and donators. The issue that Susan G. Komen is for or against abortion should not be a deciding factor on whether or not you should donate to them. Things like where your money goes in regards to funding for research and awareness should be.

They provided money to Planned Parenthood to allow people that couldn't afford breast exams the chance to have them. Leave abortion out of it and focus on the great things this organization has accomplished and continues to do.

People think SGK supports abortion because they also support Planned Parenthood - there are a lot of other, HEALTHCARE-related things PP address that SGKF happens to also support instead of abortions, i.e. breast exams.

The Susan Komen foundation is about finding a cure for cancer, not about abortion issues! Again this is about finding a cure for cancer!! Not abortion issues!!

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, the world’s largest breast cancer charity, has always been fairly conservative. Its founder, Nancy Brinker, is a major Republican donor; in 2000, she was a George W. Bush “Pioneer,” raising at least $100,000 for his campaign, and Bush later appointed her ambassador to Hungary. Still, until recently, it wore its politics lightly. “The fact that Komen is led by a Republican has never really translated to the way it’s been perceived among women in this country,” says Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), who has chaired many Komen events. “It’s been perceived as a nonprofit doing good work.” That changed on Tuesday, when the foundation announced that it would no longer fund breast cancer screenings by Planned Parenthood. The money at stake wasn’t much, less than $700,000. But its withdrawal sent a signal that Komen has taken sides in the Republican effort to discredit the country’s largest provider of reproductive health care.
