“I am extremely disappointed that politics is once again coming between women and their health care needs. Breast cancer screenings should not be a political issue, and I am very concerned that this decision by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation will cut women off from the health care providers they rely on for critical preventive care.
“At the heart of this issue is the shameful ‘investigation’ of Planned Parenthood by House Republicans trying to score political points and appease their extreme right-wing base. Komen should not allow these sort of partisan games to put women across America at risk.
“Thousands of women across the country depend on Planned Parenthood for breast cancer prevention, screenings, and education—and they shouldn’t have to pay the price for this misguided and damaging decision.”
