Abortion opponents have praised Susan G. Komen for the Cure's decision to pull funding from Planned Parenthood, but they remain cautious on lending support to the breast cancer charity.
Eve Sanchez Silver, founder of International Coalition of Color for Life, told CNA that “God is served whenever funding is cut to the human abattoirs of Planned Parenthood.”
But Silver, who spent four years on Komen's Hispanic Latina Advisory Council before quitting over its funding of Planned Parenthood, says she is “cautious” and believes Komen “will most likely choose to continue funding” the abortion provider in the long run.
Under recently adopted policies, Susan G. Komen for the Cure will no longer fund organizations that are under government investigation. The category includes Planned Parenthood, the subject of a congressional inquiry over financial irregularities and possible involvement with criminal acts.
