Catholic bishops prodded Komen to drop Planned Parenthood support

Catholic bishops prodded Komen to drop Planned Parenthood supportRSSFacebookMarch 16, 2012

A Reuters report claims that Catholic bishops “pressured” the Komen Foundation to end its support for Planned Parenthood. In fact, the Reuters story shows that several Catholic bishops had ended their support for the Komen Foundation because of its links with Planned Parenthood. Thus the “pressure” seen by Reuters was a withdrawal of voluntary contributions.
Earlier this year the Komen Foundation announced that it was ending its own voluntary support for Planned Parenthood. The result was an angry campaign, denouncing Komen for putting pressure on Planned Parenthood. Stung by the relentless criticism, Komen backed away from the announcement.
