Cancer charity halts grants to Planned Parenthood

Cancer charity halts grants to Planned Parenthood: "NEW YORK (AP) -- The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G.

The change will mean a cutoff of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants, mainly for breast exams.

Apparently it's more important to listen to the crazies in the right wing than it is to save Womens lives!
