New Arvada Planned Parenthood cancer project funded by Komen flap

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains announced this week that it is launching a new breast cancer prevention and screening project at its Arvada clinic.

Planned Parenthood salutes Colorado Komen for leadership in funding policy flap

In the wake of news, breaking only an hour ago, that the renowned Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer foundation would reverse its controversial decision to pull funds from Planned Parenthood, local Planned Parenthood representatives praised Colorado Komen affiliates for leading in what was clearly an internal Komen revolt against the decision, where local affiliates demanded national leaders put the mission to fight breast cancer and save women's lives over anti-abortion politics.

For now, Denver Komen leaves politics out of funding decision

The Denver affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation's top charity battling breast cancer, announced this week it would not automatically stop funding Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. Komen made clear in its announcement that the decision is based on the fact that, in Colorado, Planned Parenthood is a leader in fighting breast cancer and is also likely the organization that provides the most bang for the buck to the Denver Komen foundation.
