Battered Foundation Syndrome II

The Komen foundation reunites with Planned Parenthood after trying to disassociate itself from the nation's largest abortion provider. My print column is up.

UPDATE: In the comments, Quadmom writes:
Factcheck, please:Regarding PP: "Its main business is abortion"Three percent of funding goes to abortion services.http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/post/what-planned-parenthood-actually-does/2011/04/06/AFhBPa2C_blog.htmlSince when is 3% a majority? Or are you worried that a pap smear somehow leads to abortions? "
Those numbers are a ruse. Planned Parenthood gives away many of those other services and referrals which are funded by government and other sources.

In 2010 Planned Parenthood pulled in an estimated $160 million from its abortion business. It's main business IS selling abortions. And it always has been.

UPDATE II: From the New York Times edit, I got a kick out of this line.
“With its roster of corporate sponsors and the pink ribbons that lend a halo to almost any kind of product you can think of, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation has a longstanding reputation as a staunch protector of women’s health. 
Putting a "halo" over the product of abortion was part of the problem in the first place.
