Komen for [Preventing] the Cure reverses course on Planned Parenthood funding cut By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 04 Feb 2012 Susan G. Komen for [Preventing] the Cure foundation works hand-in-hand with corpora-terrorists dumping pollutants, which keep breast cancer rates high. Komen has NO INTEREST in finding a cure for breast cancer. Komen exists only for Komen, and that's always been the case.
Komen creeps make a *killing* on cancer: Susan G. Komen Foundation Elbows Out Charities Over Use of the Word 'Cure' 07 Dec 2010 In addition to raising millions of dollars a year for 'breast cancer research,' fundraising giant Susan G. Komen for the Cure has a lesser-known mission that eats up donor funds: patrolling the waters for other charities and events around the country that use any variation of "for the cure" in their names. So far, Komen has identified and filed legal trademark oppositions against more than a hundred of these Mom and Pop charities, including Kites for a Cure, Par for The Cure, Surfing for a Cure and Cupcakes for a Cure--and many of the organizations are too small and underfunded to hold their ground.
Charity Brawl: Nonprofits Aren't So Generous When a Name's at Stake 05 Aug 2010 As the leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen For the Cure helped make "for the cure" a staple of the fund-raising vernacular. The slogan is so popular that dozens of groups have sought to trademark names incorporating the phrase. Among them are "Juggling for a Cure," "Bark for the Cure," and "Blondes for the Cure." Komen sees this as imitation, and it's not flattered. Instead, it's launching a not-so-friendly legal battle against kite fliers, kayakers and dozens of other themed fund-raisers that it contends are poaching its name. And it's sternly warning charities against dabbling with pink, its signature hue. "It is startling to us that Komen thinks they own pink," says Mary Ann Tighe, who tangled with the breast-cancer charity over the color for her "Kites for a Cure" lung-cancer fund-raiser. "We cannot allow ourselves to be bullied to no purpose."
Komen reverses move to cut Planned Parenthood funding 03 Feb 2012 The Susan G. Komen for [Preventing] the Cure foundation backed down from its decision to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion and birth control services, following a massive outcry by supporters of the world's largest breast cancer charity. Komen's decision had thrust the group into America's deeply politicized debate over abortion rights and its apology on Friday may not satisfy the more vocal advocates on either side. Planned Parenthood supporters, including local directors within Komen's ranks, say Komen had come under pressure from anti-abortion activists. Social conservatives had lauded the move to disengage from Planned Parenthood and said it would win Komen new supporters.
