Posted on 02/04/2012 11:48:13 AM PST by John Semmens
Under pressure from leading abortion advocates, the Komen Foundation for the Cure of Breast Cancer reversed an earlier decision to discontinue its annual grant to Planned Parenthood.
It has been pointed out to us that our decision to cease funding Planned Parenthood was based on some miscalculations, said Komen CEO Nancy Brinker. First, many of those who have supported our efforts to fight breast cancer are ardent about the work of Planned Parenthood. Our decision to end funding for that organization was taken as an insult and could have longer term negative impacts on our main mission.
Second, every abortion provided by Planned Parenthood is provided to a woman, Brinker observed. Womens rights and womens health are clearly important to that organization. Even if we were to consider the effects on the aborted fetuses only about half of them wouldve eventually become women. The health of actual women has got to take precedence over the health of potential women.
Brinker downplayed evidence that having an abortion increases a womans risk for coming down with breast cancer, calling it unproven. Not every woman who has an abortion gets breast cancer, Brinker asserted. Many who have never had an abortion still get breast cancer. So, those who contend that our support of Planned Parenthood might contradict our central purpose do not have a conclusive case.

LOL, you almost got me again. :)
It will be interesting to see how Komen does in fund raising from here on out. Will people be as willing to join in the Komen sponsored events?
Satire is usually lies mixed with a bit of truth.
Where are the lies?
They will show up --- with picket signs.
Haha! Every baby that’s aborted is one less person that might have gotten cancer.
Yeah, and about half the babies aborted in the U.S. are little girls. The Susan G. Komen Foundation has no soul, no morals. They align themselves with killing children, tried to stop because they thought it might be hurting them financially, not because they conceded it was wrong, and are now going to keep funding abortions because to stop might hurt them financially. It’s all about the money. They don’t care about people, even about people getting breast cancer. Studies show a strong correlation between abortion and breast cancer, but Susan G. Komen couldn’t care less. Sickening.
Well they won’t be getting any f my money nor support ever again then. they should never have gotten in bed with this evil. Bad decision now they don’t have the balls to extricate themselves. No more support.
Ooh, you got me there for a bit!
100% of abortions are performed on women so therefore PP cares greatly for women’s health— that is something they would say! Good on you.
