Tester: Komen’s reversal ‘the right decision’ for Montana women

(GREAT FALLS, Mont.) – Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation announced that it will reverse course and continue to provide funding for Planned Parenthood breast cancer screenings. The announcement comes after Tester and 25 other senators on Thursday asked the Komen Foundation to "put women's health care before partisan politics":

“Women in Montana deserve access to affordable health services like breast cancer screenings. The Komen Foundation made a responsible decision to keep funding preventative, life-saving care for women.”
