How shocking to see the Susan G. Komen Foundation give $650,000 to Planned Parenthood last year, the largest provider of abortions (more than 300,000 in 2010), with annual revenues exceeding $1 billion.

They were defunding Planned Parenthood because it has been under congressional and criminal investigations by attorneys general, local prosecutors and various regulatory agencies in Arizona, Indiana, Alabama, Kansas and Texas for allegations including failure to report criminal child sex abuse, misuse of health care and family-planning funds, and failure to comply with parental-involvement laws regarding abortion.

Sue Thayer, former manager of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Storm Lake, Iowa where the telemed abortion scheme was implemented in 2008, said the lower overhead associated with telemed abortions made them a mega-moneymaker even though they increased health and safety risks. Telemed abortions were the experimental practice of distributing abortion pills over a video conferencing connection. She described "abortion quotas" every clinic was ordered to meet, and how abortion revenues accounted for 46 percent of the operating budget. When she voiced concerns about telemed abortions, she was "let go."
