Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation's leading breast-cancer charity, announced today it was reversing its decision to end grants to Planned Parenthood, after facing increasing pressure from pro-abortion lawmakers and accusations that it had given in to political influences, Fox News reports. "We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives," the organization said. "The events of this week have been deeply unsettling for our supporters, partners and friends and all of us at Susan G. Komen. We have been distressed at the presumption that the changes made to our funding criteria were done for political reasons or to specifically penalize Planned Parenthood. They were not."
