Fox News alert -- back to one of our top story today a dramatic about face from the Susan G.
Komen for the Cure foundation.
The breast cancer fund raiser cut funding to Planned Parenthood earlier this week saying it was because the group was the target of a congressional investigation.
Then came about fierce criticism of the komen foundation and Coleman went on the defensive -- its chief.
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 it the most we don't just talk about this -- we live it every day every single day.
In -- scurrilous accusations being hurled at this organization are profoundly hurtful to so many of us.
Who put our hurt solo and lives into this organization.
-- two hours ago.
They did bowed to political pressure from the look of it and now the funding to Planned Parenthood is back.
Joining me now sandy -- -- she's the vice president a family pack federal.
And you -- green who was the former president of the women's media center both.
Our Fox News contributors thank you both so much for coming back on what a difference a day makes right I mean this -- this is pretty stunning because you you heard her.
You know that that that that woman -- Susan G.
-- yesterday we will never bow to political pressure.
And that's what -- was trying to say was that this was not that political pressure wasn't the reason we were yanking funding from Planned Parenthood.
And yet -- today it does seem that that's what's happened here.
If the car turned upside down again -- and because that like that the letter from 26 senator.
Condemning Susan G komen for what they did saying that you shouldn't about a political pressure what what kind of a letter is that.
And I'm asking also what it -- that senators have.
Pressuring a private organization about how they spend their money when they can't even make a federal budget.
About the totally if they are being pressured in -- -- we are witnessing.
An absolute shake down of an organization that simply wants to save the lives of women with cancer -- -- And they've decided not to partner they had.
With Planned Parenthood the nation's largest abortion provider one organization is in the business of killing women.
One organization is in the business of trying to save their lives.
What is essential.
-- and then confusion that that the part of my gender I'm ashamed the emotion all the vitriolic the election.
That was displayed in the criticisms with Susan G.
Komen went saving women's lives in breast cancer research is not related.
To what Planned Parenthood does they are under investigation for very good reason with a very rational decision but -- rationality.
Ally and the threat that we thought yesterday I haven't at the U all the -- -- -- Planned Parenthood the so called fund raising email that -- up.
You can spend every minute of every day trying to force the rest -- -- -- -- by your ideology.
You can go after federal funds -- G -- but you know what you can't do you can't win you can't break -- everything better.
Well and end and it worked rebellion won't it work I wanna get you going at -- it worked because as Planned Parenthood that.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars donated in the wake of this apparently Susan G.
Komen got 100% of its donations.
You know from the week prior your reaction to today's -- -- Well the bottom line is -- and we should all be on the same side fighting against -- attack.
And there were a number of troops for many years that have been trying to politicize -- out and what we -- seen.
And outrage and support.
For an organization that -- women who lives and -- -- not emailing them vulnerable women can't get lets you talk let me finish.
Planned Parenthood is in the business of providing.
Breast cancer screening should be most vulnerable communities when you look at all especially African American women and -- You know -- who have higher write about Celebrex is landing in black candy let me finish you know.
Maybe yesterday used celebrated.
Women who are in the most vulnerable communities not having access to critical Brett can't tell reading leaving -- -- -- The world stood up and that we're not -- fact that.
People who care about cancer every family in America -- -- been so that can I have your hysterical why haven't I grabbed women mobile equipment if he didn't break him out -- -- I did not answer right on the -- indeed did not interrupt me because they're -- I'm -- happy if you're going to -- that -- at -- a class -- Against the type up politicization.
Of women's bodies women's health care this organization that serves one -- young women in America.
I you know yesterday at that 750000.
Limited gotten breast cancer screening if I want to correct my -- it's actually -- 170000.
They've gotten everything that we didn't have that garnered.
I'll get better and we know that I ordered all the idea that there are a lot of Earth Day is -- and we don't have an accurate and that hot -- I'm Mara called on rob -- for you -- The right cotton that come on let's not talk over each other it really irritate the viewers and it irritates me.
That the question I have for you is clearly Coleman you know -- -- What message does does this then do you believe two other donors.
Who contribute to Planned Parenthood because there is an interesting piece in the Wall Street Journal today suggesting the message really is.
You give you better be prepared to give forever because the backlash against you if you poll funding from a group as powerful as death.
Will be at back.
We have already been experiencing them and we we talk about as conservative as we talk about free enterprise in the free -- this is the opposite when we have.
We talk about politicizing I would like to see evidence.
That it there was people that the politicization that was pressuring Susan G komen for -- decision what we see in living color is.
A letter from twentieth -- senators we see this outpouring all these public statements threatening them.
I think this is very dangerous doesn't become as a private enterprise and they have a right to give their grants to anyone they -- but obviously they don't.
Because if they get there if they don't give their grants to people that.
Point six senators agree with -- these.
Women who are such staunch support supported the Planned Parenthood again the nation's largest abortion provider they will be punished roundly what -- -- -- -- Hillary -- or ran out of time and I like you're both sides about what -- -- the that the message here because if you would agree calling to give its funny to who whoever wants it doesn't have to get the Planned Parenthood.
And people who elect -- parent could donate to make up that loss Andy did.
So what message does this send out to other would be Planned Parenthood donors that.
You if you -- give once you better be prepared to keep giving forever.
-- -- and I think we have to keep in mind that for many years.
The national right to life groups.
Have been politicizing this and they have run a very attractive campaign.
Against Susan G.
Komen to get them to defund planned -- had.
So it started way before this but that is about political pass intended to reinstate the funding but at the end of the day what we have seen.
Is that this treasure the relationship.
That Susan G.
Komen had with Planned Parenthood and will continue to have with them to reach the most vulnerable communities they.
Heard from women they heard it from mothers and daughters and -- -- -- everyone who cares about a mother and a daughter.
And and they reversed that decision and backed a wave from the politics that had been put on them that the boycott in the -- until it.
Probably anti Canadian and probably I want to pretend that -- not been doing for years.
So now we can celebrate our mothers and got to celebrate till Tuesday -- -- plain -- Reynolds draining you know that I don't like Planned Parenthood -- Margaret Sanger targeted the black community for.
Eliminating an absolute a lot of bad that they have a little like Albania and I'm not -- -- here in the Latin latest.
We're grandma right now I know they're not on the rails terminated I got -- Leo yeah.
I realized that that they aren't they aren't suggesting that that that that the funding.
Let you know that one to the other can be separated out Reagan and human -- I came -- to -- experiment standing engine though even though that was irritating let me -- thank you so much.
-- -- -- listen it's an it's an issue people feel passionate about and I understand that none bigger viewers understand that sometimes people get.
Really passionate about it on the year anyway -- -- but to.
