Some Former Komen Supporters Can’t Forgive, Forget

The decisions by The Susan G. Komen for the Cure charity to cut funding to Planned Parenthood, then reverse itself, have left many Komen supporters conflicted.

Dorothy Twinney, an activist who has raised thousands of dollars to fight breast cancer, says she was done with the organization after it announced plans to stop giving money to Planned Parenthood. The Plymouth, Mich., woman says she’s disappointed in the group, even after it reversed its decision.

Pro-life activists say they also felt betrayed by Komen. Some had urged members to donate to Komen after it pulled funding from Planned Parenthood. Then, when Komen reversed its decision, the groups had to ask members to withhold those funds.
