HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA, June 6, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Susan G. Komen Foundation’s contentious flurry of policies regarding Planned Parenthood this year – funding, then defunding, then re-funding the abortion giant – left many people confused. Actress Gabrielle Union, who supports the annual fundraiser and Planned Parenthood, revealed her own form of confusion on the matter recently.

Many pro-abortion Americans refused to support the Komen foundation this year after it briefly threatened to end its relationship with Planned Parenthood, while pro-life Americans have withheld their funds after the organization caved in and renewed funding to the abortion giant. Dramatically fewer people participated in this year’s Race for the Cure as a result.

Union described her decision to run in the fundraiser, telling The Washington Examiner, “I can say as a proud Democrat that I don’t bat an eyelash supporting Komen and I don’t bat an eyelash supporting Planned Parenthood because ultimately their goal is the same: saving women’s lives.” 
 
In 2007, The Washington Post described Union – who is perhaps best known for her role opposite Kirsten Dunst in Bring It On – as a “nice Catholic girl.” 

She said she absorbed much of her political outlook from her mother, who “took me to my first gay pride parade when I was 8. I wore a button, ‘Straight but Not Narrow Minded.’”

Planned Parenthood performed 329,445 abortions in 2010.
