On learning that Susan G. Komen for the Cure was about to defund Planned Parenthood, both traditional media outlets and leftist media sites exploded with indignant rage. Hysterical bloggers on left-wing websites declared that Komen had joined the GOP “War on Women,” and claimed thousands of women would be harmed or even left to die if Komen stopped funding Planned Parenthood.

Leaving aside the question of the type of “care” Planned Parenthood provides its customers, the group’s own numbers tell a different story – that Planned Parenthood could easily have survived financially without receiving Komen grants.
