Planned Parenthood has helped millions of American women get access to basic health care. The Susan G. Komen Foundation is politicizing our health care system by defunding of Planned Parenthood's life-saving work.

I refuse to run in Susan G. Komen foundation events until they restore funding to Planned Parenthood.

      Planned Parenthood is one of the few organizations that supports women's health.

      The media has influenced a large body of people to believe that it functions as an "Abortion clinic" when the statistics state that their abortion services actually account for less than 3% of their total services.

      Most people aren't happy that this organization allows access to contraceptives, but that is a matter of religion!

      Women should be allowed to do what they want with their bodies.

      A majority of their services offered are STD testing, and treatment. Could you imagine what it would be like without Planned Parenthood?

      Because Planned Parenthood stands up for women's rights, I will stand behind Planned Parenthood.

      The full Board needs to resign. Until then I will never support them again. I'm tired of hate filled politics and that is what they played. I can't trust they won't do it again until the Board is replaces.

      It's about the women, not the imposition of abortion politics.

      You have politicized breast cancer and women's health. Your apology had no truth to it. Lies are not acceptable in leaders....especially when our donations pay your salaries.
