Komen wrong to support Planned Parenthood

I have to scratch my head why the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundationwas funding Planned Parenthood in the first place ("Komen's attack on abortion rights," Feb. 2). With some research suggesting an increased rate of breast cancer among those who have abortions , it seems that funding Planned Parenthood would actually be at cross-purposes with Komen's mission. Sort of like the American Cancer Association sending cash contributions to the cigarette companies. The Komen Foundation should reconsider their recent reversal, stand their ground, and promote women's breast health by stopping all funding to Planned Parenthood immediately.
