The woman who "spent months pushing the plan to shift the organization's grant strategy, leading the board to decide to cut off funding for 17 of the 19 Planned Parenthood affiliates in December," according to recent Reuters article stepped down as Komen's VP.

What is Karen Handel's departure seen as for abortion advocates?
Handel's departure is "a step in the right direction. But it's not clear to me that they've really changed their policy," said Jodi Jacobson, whose blog RHRealityCheck.org is widely followed by women's reproductive rights advocates.
With so much scientific evidence showing correlations between abortion instance and contraception use and the instance of breast cancer, why doesn't Komen withstand the political pressure from abortion lobbyists to truly work to "find a cure?"
