There was a reason I cautioned against donating to Komen until they proved they wouldn’t support Planned Parenthood again. See Breaking: Komen announces that Planned Parenthood eligibility for funding will continue.
Regardless of where this ends up, their Netflix-style leadership has been horrible. That alone is a reason to avoid them for now. They should have known more about PP before they started funding them. Breaking off relations with a group whose primary purpose is destroying human life is bound to be messy. Now Komen has managed to alienate both sides.
Will they be refunding all the donations that pro-lifers made yesterday? That would be the honest thing to do.
First, I don’t care if killing innocent human beings is only 0.00001% of your business model. If it is more than zero then I won’t support you. Same thing for systematically hiding statutory rape and sex trafficking.
Just dig a little deeper on those PP stats. Clients obviously get multiple services, as 1 out of 9 got an abortion. So the figure is at least 11%. Women are 400 times more likely to get an abortion than to be referred for an adoption.
And as Abby Johnson (former PP director) will attest, they get a lot of pressure to increase abortions (as opposed to getting pressure to pass out condoms or do pap smears).
And where does their revenue come from? PP doesn’t pay these salaries based on how many condoms they give away, they get it from performing 329,455 abortions. (P.S. They are the 1% so I hope the Occupy Crowd protests them.)

I’m with Kevin DeYoung:
So for whatever useful purposes they may serve on ocassion, I’m not ashamed to admit that of all the things I don’t trust in the world two of them at the top of the list are statistics and Planned Parenthood.
