Komen is now saying they haven't caved on caving in on not caving to caving into Planned Parenthood... or something like that.
So Komen backtracks on backtracking...
Komen board member John Raffaelli talked with the Washington Post after the statement was released and said the new announcement doesn’t necessarily mean there is any reversal until and unless Planned Parenthood receives additional funding beyond what was already planned before Komen’s December decision.
“It would be highly unfair to ask us to commit to any organization that doesn’t go through a grant process that shows that the money we raise is used to carry out our mission,” Raffaelli said. “We’re a humanitarian organization. We have a mission. Tell me you can help carry out our mission and we will sit down at the table.”
Raffaelli said that the new statement was an attempt to remove the politics from the grant-making process, saying “Is it really unclear that we’re changing the policy to address criticism?”
