Rep. Moran Calls on Komen Foundation to Reverse Planned Parenthood Decision


    Washington DC – Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat, released the following statement following the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation’s decision to pull funding for Planned Parenthood:

    “The Komen Foundation’s decision regarding Planned Parenthood is deeply troubling. As an organization dedicated to eradicating breast cancer, it’s hard to understand how eliminating funding that provides hundreds of thousands of women with preventive screenings is in anyone’s best interest.

    “I call on the Foundation to reverse their decision and not let politics interfere with protecting women’s health.”
