SUSAN G. KOMEN V.P. KAREN HANDLE RESIGNS; OVER PLANNED PARENTHOOD SCANDAL

07 Feb

The Susan G. Komen foundation recently received backlash for pulling funding from Planned Parenthood.  The charity pulled this support for breast cancer screening, but quickly changed their mind after huge protests. 

Although they decided to reinstate the funds, it was too late.  Karen Handle, Vice President of the charity, just announced her resignation, effective immediately.  What’s surprising is that she refused a severance package.

Why don’t people think things through more carefully?  Didn’t they realize the impact of this decision…pulling funding for anything involving cancer, is a guaranteed mistake.  

On a positive note; donations to Planned Parenthood hit the roof, when the Komen foundation originally pulled the plug.  Karma…works in mysteriously ways.
