    Susan B Komen Foundation! So Sad to think all your good intentions will end in you being ok with abortions of innocent babies.Wow what would your sister think... I will not walk for this organization again or donate to it. I am a surviver of Breast Cancer 18 yrs going on 19. I was so proud walking for the Breast Cancer Cure If I'd of known what I know now I'd of never given a dime. I'm done if only the pro -life org. could have used that money to STOP Abortions. To the person who thinks abortion is a women's right, I wonder what you"d think if you were the baby being aborted

    Thank you for your reversal on your stance against Planned Parenthood!

    It's is clear that the Susan B Komen organization, which had been doing very good job in combating breast cancer, very foolishly allowed itself to be hijacked for political purposes by far-right Republican political extremists who care far more about advancing their own "back to the Middle Ages" social agenda than the do about combating breast cancer. The Komen board and management have done a grave disservice to their own cause thereby. It should never have been dragged into politics of any kind, and certainly not extremist politics, in this way.

    All this damage is direct consequence of another grave mistake by the board and management: hiring as Senior Vice President of public affairs. a failed candidate for the Virginia State Senate who is from the most extreme, gun-totin' far right of the Republican party, and is evidently misusing the money that pays for her salary -- money raised to combat cancer -- in an attempt to revive her failed political career.

    Oh, the power of women. Woman united to tell Susan B Koman you are wrong. Good luck with your reversal. Women will no longer walk, rather we will gather and shout, "Shame on you.".

    I strongly oppose abortion. This article said they used the money for breast exams, but I think that's why they are being audited. The earmarked money is going to abortions and they lied. Now @LAURA.... Did you really say lazy women need to keep their legs closed? It is NOT only the womans responsibility. It requires a male whom can just as easily use a condom.

    Way to go,SBKF. You managed to politicize women's health. No way I'm giving you a dime any more. Nor walking for you. And believe me, I"m not alone.

    Maybe Susan B. found out that the money she was donating was going to killing babies not breast cancer screening (their org. focus).
    Way to GO!! Do not back down- more people need to become aware of what goes on behind closed doors at Planned Parenthood! I think if we could send all our 4th grade girls on "tours" through most facilities we would see a lot less baby killing. Sure, they provide other services so they can remain in the good graces of the public, but their overall profit is in abortions. Please tell me... when is it "ALL RIGHT" to kill a baby?

    It these economics times, one must focus on what the priority is. Susan B. Komen priority is a cure for breast cancer. period. The origins of Planned Parenthood are dark and sinister. The disadvantage woman that they didnt want to procreate was the black woman. so the planned parenthood facilities sprung up in the black nieghbors. Please don't insult my intelligence like this is a good thing to eradicate a race by pretending you providing a service it needs when the ultimate goal is the destruction of a race. Defective contraceptions were provided. $$$ was provided. If you think Planned Parenthood is about a woman's right, look at how much money is transferring hands. GET REAL people. If it was about a woman's right, they would have taught women the games men play to get in the panties a long time ago.
