Representative Jessica Farrar: Statement Regarding Susan G. Komen's Reverse Decision

HOUSTON, TX--Representative Jessica Farrar offered the following statement:

"This morning, I was pleased to learn of Susan G. Komen for the Cure's decision to continue funding breast cancer screening, prevention, and education at Planned Parenthood clinics. Women's health advocates from every corner of the nation voiced their support for the great care that Planned Parenthood provides. The power of individual voices coming together to fight for a common cause has truly prevailed.

Through their partnership, Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood offer services to thousands of uninsured and under-insured women at little or no cost. Together, Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood can now get back to the most important task - saving women's lives."
