Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Need Komen (or Taxpayer Money)

Komen drops grants to Planned Parenthood, Mike Bloomberg comes to the rescue:

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, responding to the controversy over a breast cancer advocacy group that cut off most of its grants to Planned Parenthood for breast cancer screening, said Thursday that he would make up a large part of the missing money.

Mr. Bloomberg, a billionaire with a long-term interest in public health, said he would give Planned Parenthood Federation of America a $250,000 matching gift — he will donate $1 for every new dollar Planned Parenthood raises up to $250,000.

Planned Parenthood has plenty of wealthy allies who are comfortable supporting the nation’s largest abortion provider, comfortable with its role as a mammogram middleman. I am not sure why Komen has to be demonized for its business choice
