Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a breast cancer charity has announced it will stop funding breast cancer screening at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. Officials cite ongoing investigations into Planned Parenthood as the reason.

U.S. senate Frank Lautenberg says, “It’s a sad day when a major women’s health organization puts partisan political ideology ahead of its promise to fight breast cancer.  Women’s health services are under attack by House Republicans, and women need strong advocates and reliable services more than ever.  Komen has cut and run from the millions of women who rely on Planned Parenthood for health services.”

Lautenberg adds, “Planned Parenthood is a strong and committed organization, and I will continue working with them to minimize the impact that this decision will have on the administration of breast cancer screenings and women’s health services.”
