POLL: Do You Support Susan G. Komen's Decision to Defund Planned Parenthood?

The cancer group says it doesn't support organizations that are under Federal investigation, but Planned Parenthood says Komen is bowing to anti-abortion pressure. What do you think?

On Tuesday, the Susan G. Komen Foundation decided to cut off funding to Planned Parenthood after it learned that Planned Parenthood was under federal investigation.

In a massive response, supporters of Planned Parenthood  have raised $650,000 in just 24 hours--almost as much as the pulled Komen funding.

Planned Parenthood contends that Komen is bowing to anti-abortion pressure.

According to the Washington Post: "Komen also hired a vice president last year, Karen Handel, who had previously advocated for the group’s defunding in her run for Georgia governor."

Who do you support? Should Komen have pulled their funding? Is Planned Parenthood better off?

Take our poll and let us know. Feel free to add additional thoughts in the comments section.

Indeed, Debbie. Someone needs to speak up for those babies that are being killed. We will never be silent as long as the killing continues!

@Curtis, you are so virtuous . . . unless . . . you are one of those "pro lifers" who want to save the unborn yet are also pro-war, against healthcare for all, and support the death penalty?

Maria, I hope you don't feel pained by critics who don't have the courage to include their full names, as you have. I can't count all the times I have seen anonymous comments accusing others of falsehoods.

Events happened quite quickly. Funding to PP was restored. Did your comment reflect that, or are you for Komen funding PP?

Good grief, Earl, could you be more self-righteous about something completely meaningless? Personally, I don't think it's smart to use your full name, but to each their own. And no, no one was "accusing [her] of falsehoods," simply pointing out she's 100%, unequivocally, wrong and spreading junk facts to further her uneducated agenda. That's all. Too bad Komen realized how dumb they were being. Guess God won't be blessing them anymore, according to Maria.
