Komen for the Cure was the subject of national controversy when it decided to stop providing grants to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and, following pressure from abortion advocates and the media, reversed course days later.
The headlines were an alert to pro-life advocates to not trust the breast cancer charity and its donations and number of Race for the Cure event participants have suffered as a result. Since then, Komen has restablished itself as a reliable funder of the nations biggest abortion company to the tune of $700,000, according to one pro-life leader.
Keith Mason of Personhood USA, in an email to LifeNews, encourages pro-life advocates to continue boycotting Komen for the Cure because of the ties to the abortion giant.
Like many of you, Ive had family members and dear friends who have battled against breast cancer. As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we all want to help the people who are close to us beat their illness however we can, he said. I want to warn you, however, about some breast cancer organizations that are using our donations to fund Planned Parenthoods abortion business instead of helping friends and loved ones find a cure.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation, which hosts the Race for the Cure, is the largest breast cancer foundation in America. Last year, their large grants to Planned Parenthood came to the publics attention. After briefly halting the funds, Komen gave in to Planned Parenthoods bullying tactics and gave them $700,000, Mason continued. Of course, Planned Parenthood doesnt even do mammogram testing. They dont offer breast biopsies or breast ultrasounds either. Of the manual breast exams that Planned Parenthood actually does perform, only about 4% are funded by Komen.
Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood kills 330,000 unborn children every year and the fact that Planned Parenthood already receives $542 million in government funds, the Komen Foundation ended up giving stacks of cash to Planned Parenthood, he said. They did this despite the growing evidence of a link between abortion and breast cancer. A recent study found that abortion is the #1 preventable cause of breast cancer. Among 7 risk factors, the researchers called abortion the best predictor of breast cancer.
Mason says that when pro-life advocates recently asked Komen, Why arent women being told about the most preventable risk factor? Komens Dana Brandorff answered, We tend to focus on the cure . . . were focusing our energies on that, rather than the preventative.
He concludes: Dont let the Komen Foundation use your money to fund Planned Parenthood. Please consider an alternative organization to promote breast cancer research, like the Avon Walk, which does not give money to Planned Parenthood.
Wisconsin Family Council president Julaine Appling agrees and says that link between the two organizations causes problems.
She said: The link between the Komen group and Planned Parenthood is more serious than many understand. Research shows a very strong link between abortion and breast cancer, meaning that the risk of a woman getting breast cancer is considerably higher if she has had an abortion. If were really going to talk about breast cancer awareness, lets get all the facts out there. Womens lives are at stake.
One more reason why I don’t think that pink is very attractive on pro football players.
Told a neighbor who was running for them that I could not support her.
I don’t even buy products with the Komen symbol on them.
My local Kroger just ended a Komen Campaign for Dollars. I probably had been there 5 times during it. Each time when asked to donate, I replied that I DON’T donate to Komen because they fund abortions and there is no documented evidence they spend any of their donations on research, cancer research or treatment,etc. beyond advertising, fundraising and Board of Director salaries, each in the hundreds of thousands of dollars per year category.
In my opinion, yhe Komen foundation is an abortion-supporting, fundraising charity mill that does not do anything with respect to a cure for cancer, period. The same goes for their heart-tugging Threeday.org scam.
If Komen or anybody else really cared about Breast Cancer, you would see honest reporting about the clear association with BC Pills.
Instead we see study summaries designed to deceive, and pretend there is no cause and effect.
Try looking at the incedence of Breast Cancer in the decades before 1980 and after.
Noting The Pill, came into wide use in the 60’s and 70’s.
Mason says that when pro-life advocates recently asked Komen, Why arent women being told about the most preventable risk factor? Komens Dana Brandorff answered, We tend to focus on the cure . . . were focusing our energies on that, rather than the preventative.If women are freed of breast cancer (even somewhat), Dana, might have to get off her "brandorff" and find another lucrative position. That's more to the point of why she isn't schooling women on the connection between abortion and breast cancer.
Why they will never get another dime from me.
Komen for the Kill.
Komen supports the Nazi death organization Planned Parenthood?
Komen? For the Cure?
“I dont even buy products with the Komen symbol on them.”
I noticed even the Girl Scouts selling cookies outside grocery stores were not very aggressive this year. I bet their leaders told them to keep their mouths shut lest they get an earfull on abortions that the scouts are supporting nowadays.
