Remember the media frenzy when Susan G. Komen For The Cure pulled funding from Planned Parenthood. If you're on Facebook much, you probably saw plenty of people complaining about it. "Don't throw Planned Parenthood under the bus" and such.

How how big of a deal it was, it wasn't actually that big of a deal. Let's take a look at just a few of the numbers involved.


$680,000 - Komen's withheld funding

$1 Billion - Planned Parenthood's annual budget

.068% - Planned Parenthood's budget that comes from Komen

$35 Million - Komen's annual revenues

$400,000 - Donations to Planned Parenthood on the first day after losing Komen's funding

$250,000 - Individual donation from Michael Bloomberg

$250,000 - Individual donation from Lee Fikes


$347,628 - Planned Parenthood of NYC's highest executive compensation

$222,108 - Planned Parenthood of NYC's average executive compensation

7 - Planned Parenthood of NYC executives

$1,554,755 - Total executive compensation at Planned Parenthood of NYC

$124,965 - Average Planned Parenthood of NYC's executive compensation if the executives of just this one chapter of Planned Parenthood made up the entire Komen funding shortfall out of pocket.

If Komen, a charity dedicated to fighting breast cancer, pulling its funding was throwing Planned Parenthood under the bus, aren't the executives, people who are supposed to be dedicated to Planned Parenthood, throwing the organization under the bus every year by taking such big salaries?
