Susan G Komen & Abortion

Carla responded to my last post with a comment that the Susan G. Komen foundation gives to Planned Parenthood, which is the nation's top provider of abortions. This is information I was not aware of. After doing a bit of research I've found the following articles on the internet if anyone is interested in learning more.

Breast Cancer Foe Gives Big $$ to Top Abortion Provider

Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's Link to Abortion

There are many more if you do a search on the web.

I do find it ironic that a foundation that is trying to find a cure for something that can be such a threat to women, is also giving large amounts of money to an organization which not only provides services to kill our children, but also scars women physically and emotionally. I know many will jump to the defense of these organizations saying that Planned Parenthood provides breast cancer screening and other services to help women, however one good does not negate the other. And considering that the largest service they provide is abortions, I find it hard to rationalize the few "good" things they do. Many other worthy organizations can provide tehse services and are more worthy of our money.

Another thing to consider is research supporting a possible link between breast cancer and abortions.

I do want to note that from what I've been able to determine the Breast Cancer Site which I've linked to in my sidebar is not part of the Susan G. Komen foundation nor gives to Planned Parenthood or supports abortion. They do list Susan G. Komen events on the website though.

Thank you Ang. Very good post. Not many seem to be aware of the link between SGK and PP. OR of the abortion-breast cancer link either.

I found your blog while Googling this very thing. I see you posted this in 2007, and yet how very few know this.

I am always encouraged to find fellow Christians out in blog land.
May the Lord bless you.
