Over the next few months dozens of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure events will take place all over the United States. This popular organization purports to be committed to ending breast cancer. But like so many of the pink ribbon groups, Susan G. Komen has a dark side -- namely its commitment to Planned Parenthood and to the politically correct ideology that helps hide the abortion/breast cancer connection.
In 2005 Right to Life of Indianapolis published a 29 page research report documenting the link between the Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood state by state and affiliate by affiliate. About 40 percent of Komen state affiliates from 1998-2005 awarded grants, sometimes multiple, to Planned Parenthood which often provides information tables at the races promoting their services.
STOP Planned Parenthood reported that from April 1 2005 to March 1, 2006 Komen gave PP $711,485. While the organization claims the money is used for breast cancer screening, the 2005 report showed that during the period covered grantees REDUCED breast cancer services and INCREASED abortion services. During the 2006-2007 fiscal years PP also received hundreds of thousands of dollars. Check out the LifeSiteNews report.
It's time to get this information out. Share the report and other information with your local bishop asking him to publish it in the diocesan paper and discourage people from supporting the race for the cure. Not only is Susan G. Komen supporting Planned Parenthood, they are lying to women.
