Last week, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, a leading breast cancer charity, announced it would no longer provide funding to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood received nearly $700,000 from Komen last year, according to the Associated Press, and much of that is used to provide mammograms for women in underserved neighborhoods.

Komen said their rules prohibited grants to organizations under investigation. The investigation? GOP congressman Cliff Stearns announced an investigation of Planned Parenthood over abortions, but the furor was so great, Komen backed off and now says it will not cut off grants to Planned Parenthood.

Eleanor Hinton Hoytt, president and CEO of the Black Women’s Health Imperative and author of Health First: The Black Woman’s Wellness Guide joined Roland Martin on the set of Washington Watch to discuss the Komen controversy and what women should be doing to protect their health.
