Moran Calls on Komen Foundation To Reverse Recent Decision

Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, who represents the 8th District of Virginia that includes the City of Falls Church, issued a statement today calling on the Komen Foundation to reverse its decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood. In his statement, Moran said, “The Komen Foundation’s decision regarding Planned Parenthood is deeply troubling. As an organization dedicated to eradicating breast cancer, it’s hard to understand how eliminating funding that provides hundreds of thousands of women with preventive screenings is in anyone’s best interest. I call on the Foundation to reverse its decision and not let politics interfere with protecting women’s health.”
