Komen halts grants to Planned Parenthood

CINCINNATI - Following days of backlash, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has reversed its decision to end grants to Planned Parenthood.  

Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio found out about the reversed decision late Friday afternoon.

Earlier this week, Komen came under fire for saying they would no longer support Planned Parenthood.

The organizations previously worked together to provide thousands of mammograms. But on Tuesday, Komen changed its criteria, saying it couldn't support Planned Parenthood because the group was under investigation.

Susan G. Komen was accused or playing politics and people rallied behind Planned Parenthood, donating $3 million just since Tuesday.

After all that, the relationship between the two groups is now on the mend.

"We are very grateful that the Susan G. Komen Foundation has detailed their grant making criteria and they have clarified it and we look forward to conquering our partnership as local and national organizations with the Susan G. Komen Foundation," said Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Clinical Services Vice President Kelli Halter.

Planned Parenthood says they will have no ill will towards the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and they look forward to working together again to help support women and their health.
