At least five high-ranking executives with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity have resigned in the aftermath of the organization’s decision to eliminate its funding for Planned Parenthood.


Sandra Miniutti, vice president for Charity Navigator, said that the controversy is likely to affect Komen’s ability to raise money. Although Komen is in good financial shape, the charity may have to spend considerably more money to achieve the same amount as in the past.

Her organization allows people to review charities on its website. Before the controversy erupted, there were fewer than 100 reviews of Komen. But afterward, that number grew to about 700, many of them negative, she said.

Because of the way the organization “flip-flopped” on its decision, it angered people on both sides of the controversy, she said.
