More Bad News for Komen: Vice President Biden Will Skip D.C. Event - The Daily Beast

As the Susan G. Komen foundation gears up for its most high-profile event of the year, its Global Race for the Cure in Washington, Vice President Joe Biden will not be hosting a kickoff barbecue for the annual D.C. race, as he and his wife, Jill, have done in previous years.

Meanwhile, U.S. Congressman Mike Honda, who formed a team for the race last year that raised more than $10,000—making him the top fundraiser on Capitol Hill—told The Daily Beast that he will not be participating this year, linking the decision to Komen’s move to cut funds to Planned Parenthood earlier this year amid pressure from Catholic bishops.

More of this, please.  

Awesome Friday for Planned Parenthood, as Texas was once again barred from dropping the organization from the Women’s Health Program.
