Senator Boxer: Speaking Out for Women’s Health   

Thursday, February 2, 2012  

Dear Friend:

Today Senator Patty Murray and I appeared on MSNBC to speak out regarding Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s decision to stop funding critical breast cancer screenings through Planned Parenthood.

I was perplexed and troubled that Komen for the Cure cut off funding for life-saving breast cancer screenings because of a political witch hunt by House Republicans.  I truly hope that they will reconsider this decision and put the needs of women first.
