Komen’s funding for Planned Parenthood allowed the organization to provide nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams and referrals for more than 6,400 mammograms over the past five years. This is preventative care that saves lives.
But under pressure from anti-choice groups and Congressional Republicans, Komen pulled its funding. And now tens of thousands of women could be at risk.
In this Congress, we’ve seen an all out assault on women from the GOP, and this is just the latest fallout.
This War on Women must stop – women’s lives are at stake. Tell the GOP to stop playing politics: it’s time to put women’s health first!
