Regarding the recent stories about Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation and Planned Parenthood:
In my opinion, the Komen foundation doesn’t have the moral right to take money donated to it to fight cancer and donate it to an organization doing something else, regardless of how meritorious that organization’s work might be.
Like most people, I’ve always understood that the Komen foundation is dedicated to fighting cancer, particularly breast cancer.
If contributors to Komen want to support Planned Parenthood, as well, that’s fine; they can give their money directly.
Komen isn’t the United Way and shouldn’t try to be.
