Fierce political battle has exploded over the last 44 hours between the country's leading breast cancer group.
And Planned Parenthood.
The Susan G.
Komen foundation for the care which is the charity behind the pink ribbons you -- all over the place.
Million dollars a year for breast cancer research.
A Planned Parenthood will not be seeing a dime of that on -- go forward basis.
Planned Parenthood claims that is because there is a new pro life executive at Coleman who doesn't like -- abortion services.
But the komen foundation has released this video statement from its founder and the sister of Susan G.
About their decision.
Some might argue that our standards are too exact date but over the past three decades people have given us more than -- their money.
They've given us -- trust and we take that very seriously.
Regret -- -- this strategic shift will affect any number of longstanding partners.
But we have always done.
What is right for our organization.
For our donors and volunteers.
We will never bow to political pressure.
We will always stand firm in our goal to end breast cancer forever.
We will never turn our backs on the women who need us the most.
As if organization is now barring.
Support for organizations who are under government investigation no matter who those organizations are and in this case that includes Planned Parenthood.
Joining me now to discuss -- sandy -- -- a vice president of family packed federal and a fire Fox News contributor and -- adhered to move Green former Hillary Clinton advisor.
And -- Fox News contributor.
Thank you both so much for being here this you know and I think this raises a lot of tough issues.
And the Susan G.
Komen foundation is getting slammed.
For doing this because while they say it's because they don't they no longer want to give money to any group that's under government an investigation.
It turns out that ad of the 2000 groups they donate to.
This new edict affects one group.
And that's Planned Parenthood let me start with you -- your reaction to the decision.
I think it's a fabulous decision it doesn't make any sense at all foreign organizations that's dedicated to saving women's lives.
To give so much money to an organization that takes the lives of so many little tiny women.
Because that's a Planned Parenthood does is an abortion provider -- the largest abortion provider in the nation they do nothing to prevent breast cancer they don't even do mammograms.
In fact an undercover investigation which is the reason congress is investigating one of the reasons.
Thirty Planned Parenthood were contacted for mammograms and breast cancer screening and -- Don't do -- they refer you to another entity they're taking money from Susan G.
Komen under false pretenses.
That's not all neck and they do some of the most they have but an website call -- wire where they instruct kids in the most explicit sexual instruction.
In yet they have the good housekeeping stamp of approval.
-- in the nation because people don't really understand what they're doing.
They get tax dollars they call themselves a charity.
Planned Parenthood has some very serious ethical problems Susan G.
Komen made a great decision and I hope women -- to me today.
Will pick up there -- look on the line and don't take -- Susan G.
Komen isn't courageous decision and it's the right decision.
You know I know you see it.
Absolutely and I start.
At it from a personal place my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.
Thank goodness she had great health insurance and it was caught early.
And I applaud her as a breast cancer survivor every day.
But I also know that there are countless numbers of women.
Who do not have health insurance who do not have the resource is that my mom did.
To have their cancer detected early.
And the only place that they can turn to has been Planned Parenthood so when I hear -- say that they don't do breast cancer screenings.
I can only say let's ask the 750000.
Women who have gotten breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood.
Is it that if -- countless wedding and that they don't do -- -- that they do you know help patients and they they they checked breasts to see if there's tumor lump or something correct.
-- The brass to find tumors or lumps and and they counseled the women and and provide.
The absolute direction in which to take care.
But there needs in that time when you when you get that diagnosis and and having -- there with my mom once you got the diagnosis it was the worst day of my life.
And at the end of the day Megan.
-- it doesn't care about politics any family any person in America who has dealt with cancer knows it doesn't care about politics.
And the fight for -- here.
Should not either so it is it's come and it's -- I I just can't even understand how groups that claim to be pro life.
Would put on that you know chopping block.
Countless numbers of women poor women who have a lot of -- that it can cause.
To go on the floor flat even on diagnosis this is not -- -- general I think RE mile city and it's not acceptable.
-- -- I'm sorry about your mother but do you really think that you were the only person in the world who had a mother or sister diaper and test -- breast cancer you think that.
Millions of us who believe the life is precious have not suffered from breast cancer have friends.
-- Planned Parenthood takes thousands of dollars millions of -- and Susan G komen for.
Examining breasts and sending people out for a mammogram it's a hoax what they really do in the -- -- -- abortions and you know that.
So this is all a scam and it's a deception for women to think that.
You don't pay all this -- going to Planned Parenthood -- feel a lump in my did that I can go someplace with a whining.
Yeah I didn't women in America have visited a Planned Parenthood center one out just iPad and and have used yell at nine out of ten -- -- only -- and for health care come on now let's take it and it -- -- -- -- -- since -- -- really about a -- -- really let's talk about breast cancer blitz I can't let out early detection.
And can we not so I look at it at the end of the day if you're a Democrat Paula republic yet it's not unlike -- -- you are pro choice let me -- you can be diagnosed with cancer.
If you still can't just -- let me have ended as the only place you can go to that Planned Parenthood does and that -- -- -- -- -- -- -- appreciate -- -- again.
That the organization as you.
Hurd says this is not about Planned Parenthood abortion services that they say to common foundation that we are we have -- Restrict our grant process because there's too many -- lot of money and too little money to give.
And plan -- with the new organization rules say if you're under investigation you can't get the -- That's we heard the founder saying that the detractors say the folks who are supporting -- parted say a woman named Karen Handel.
Was hired as the vice president public policy at common.
Last year she has been very open about not supporting -- Planned Parenthood and when she ran for office in -- last year she said she would eliminate state funding.
To Planned Parenthood when she got there do you believe sandy -- -- -- you sandy do you believe that the decision is as the common foundation claims.
-- related to the abortion services at -- You know I wouldn't have anywhere you know -- to take them at their word I would say if I had to say what I think I think Susan G.
Has been like many other organizations and the sister who runs that they have been -- they think Planned Parenthood is this wonderful organization and they're just trying to help.
They didn't understand they were being to see Planned Parenthood does.
Zero they do breast exams and send you out they do nothing to prevent breast cancer Susan G.
Komen isn't out.
They should be applauded for that and their money should be better spent.
I need a 32 answer but -- they've already made up plant I'm Bernard reportedly the money people have been -- it inspired to donate.
Two to fill the gap -- and that the answer people's sport prepared and noted correctly people supports indeed coming -- their directly.
There has been a tremendous groundswell of supports to play parents -- -- Breast cancer.
-- health emergency fund and everyone should go.
Women who care about this women who have health insurance but also understand.
That our fellow women do not many of them do not should go the Planned Parenthood dot org and continue to support this organization that.
Is the last time line.
For many low income women I was -- alright yeah yeah.
Yeah -- for -- exchange that happened in America.
