Feministe puts together a great list of “facts and lies” about the relationship between Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood, as the grant cutoff continues to make headlines. The Atlantic also has a great summary of the initial decision. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has raised between $400,000 – $650,000 in the last three days, with matching grants from Michael Bloomberg and the Amy and Lee Fikes Foundation. Komen contributed approximately $680,000 to breast cancer screenings a year.
