Reigniting the US abortion debate
Issued on: Modified:
Last week, the decision by a major US breast cancer organization to withdraw funding for vital cancer screening from Planned Parenthood provoked widespread criticism. The organisation, called 'Susan G Komen for The Cure', was accused of cutting the funding because Planned Parenthood also provides abortion care. While Komen reversed its decision days later, the controversy has reignited the debate over abortion in the US.
