Indiana Right to Life statement on Komen Foundation decision to resume funding for abortion business Planned Parenthood

February 3, 2012

Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter issued this statement today regarding the Komen Foundation’s decision to continue funding for current Planned Parenthood grants:

“We are profoundly disappointed at the Komen decision to continue funding for the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood. We do not believe it is in the best interest of the Komen Foundation, breast cancer research, and the lives of women to engage in partnership with an organization that has abortion at the core of its business, and that refuses to inform women of the numerous studies showing an elevated risk of breast cancer as a result of induced abortion.

It is our understanding that Komen events in Evansville, Terre Haute, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne have not provided any local funding to Planned Parenthood over the last several years. We will work with these Komen affiliates to assure that this will continue to be the case, and that they will encourage the national Komen Foundation to deny any future grant applications from Planned Parenthood on the national level.”
