Posted on 08/22/2011 1:40:18 PM PDT by NYer
Pink ribbons are cute. They have become very trendy. Everyone has caught on to them, too. A couple of airlines wear pink during October some yogurt companies have pink ribbons on their merchandise everyone is doing it. Well, not me.
I hate breast cancer. I REALLY hate it. Breast cancer stole one of the most important people in my life from me my fathers twin sister…my aunt. Both of my grandmothers had breast cancer. My cousin died of breast cancer. Breast cancer is like a terrible virus that keeps sweeping through my family. And like all viruses, you cant get rid of them; they keep coming back.
My aunt was an amazing person. She never met a stranger. She loved everyone. And, she was pro-life. She LOVED babies. She was one of the most precious people I have ever known. I watched her battle this terrible disease for 9 years. There were ups and downs but she never gave up. She fought, sometimes with hair, sometimes without. She lost her breasts. She had multiple surgeries. She was always hopeful. Every day was a gift. Her life was a gift.
Now, I know there is lots of debate about the link between abortion and breast cancer. And to be honest, I am not convinced either way. I am not a scientist, but I love research. I know that for every study that shows a link, I can find one or two that shows there is no link. I just cant simply prove that to be fact.
But here is a fact Susan G. Komen gave $700,000 in grant money to Planned Parenthood last year. Susan G. Komen is the largest breast cancer research group. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in our country. Hmmm why would those two groups be partnering together?
Komen says they give this money to Planned Parenthood so women living in rural areas will have access to mammogram services. Really?? Well, heres the truth about that.
NO PLANNED PARENTHOOD ON THE PLANET PROVIDES MAMMOGRAM SERVICES.
Why? Because they cant. Planned Parenthood is a level one breast service provider. What does that mean? It simply means that Planned Parenthood clinics are ONLY allowed to provide manual breast exams. You know, the kind you do in the shower. The kind you can get from any nurse or physician in any clinic. They cannot provide any sort of diagnostic services no biopsies, no breast ultrasounds, AND no mammograms. That is the truth. That is a FACT.
Komen contributes in a very large way to the murder of over 320,000 babies each year. Those pink ribbons dont seem so cute anymore.
I hear people say, Well, until breast cancer has affected your family, dont tell me not to support Komen. Well, it has affected my family. It has affected us greatly. And I stand against Komen.
And let me say something else very clearly. My aunt valued life very much. But she did not value her life more than the life of any child. She would have given up her life to know that a baby would be saved. For those that continue to support Komen because this disease has affected you or someone you love this is what you are saying you are willing to sacrifice the lives of the unborn for your own. If you are comfortable with that, then keep donating to Komen. I hope you are not. I hope you will do the right thing. I will you will stand against this phony organization. Any good they do is blackened by the killing they support.
And if you do stand against them, tell them. Dont just take away your support, let them know. Send an email to your friends list. Post it on your Facebook page. Post the letter that you will send so your friends can copy yours and send one as well. Send a letter to your newspaper. Tell everyone you know. Be an activist. Make your voice heard. Dont think that Komen doesnt care they do. They care very much. Komen needs to keep up their good reputation. Dont let that happen. Expose them for what they are.
Over 320,000 babies EVERY year. Our voice is worth it. No more pink ribbons in my home. My aunts memory is worth more than that
I cant wrap her life up in a ribbon
especially when that ribbon pays for the murder of children.
That stupid pink ribbon is, to me, like a red flag to a bull. I get incensed every time I see it. It is attached to so many lies & has duped some very well-meaning people.
I try to inform everyone I can. But unfortunately we are fighteninv an uphill battle since the MSM has indoctrinated so many.
I suppose we should be looking out for a line of clothing next.
You might as well tell children there's no tooth fairy.
My wife has had several bouts of breast cancer since 1996. She has nothing to do with Komen or pink ribbons.
I tend to not buy products that want me to buy into their "cause". For starters, a ribbon tells me they're overcharging for their product. Can't get away from it, though--the cashier then hits me up to donate to the store's cause-du-jour.
Komen is like MADD. Everyone is expected to throw money at them without thinking and it is heresy to speak against them.
I'm a member of DAMM - Drunks Against Mad Mothers, and I don't even drink.
If someone is happy enough to murder their own offspring, what makes you think they wont show you the same courtesy?
I consider the right to life fundamental. Ive gotten into trouble in my business career for not supporting the United Way, because they support Planned Parenthood. Ive never supported the "Catholic Campaign for Human Development" because of their support for organizations that support abortion.
Here is another one that is off the list for my time, talent and treasure.
Like the off the record conversation with a bar owner I had about MADD. He said I can survive Obamacare, but he can't survive .06 on the breathalizer has MADD pushes from .08 to .06. He says it will close the bars/restaurants and people will have the parties at home and the accidents will go up...That was Heresy for sure....
BTW... Spent some time with Pro-Lifers this past weekend the Komen angle was mentioned as well as United Way and how PP has snuck its way into all our lives...

What parish and is there a web link? I would like information to present at our parish. Thanks in advance.
Also, there are studies that have shown a correlation between abortions and breast cancer. Until that link can be investigated, why would any responsible anti-breast cancer group want to fund what could be a risk factor for breast cancer?
That’s a big reason I use to demonstrate to people that Komen is not about breast cancer, but more about supporting radical feminist causes.
Absolutely right! It's amazing how people see "Komen" "race for the cure" and never go any further in their research. They don't want to know; it's just so much easier to "buy into" the advertising and then, when it proves to be dishonest, to call themselves "victims".
The following article is from Life Site News. Bishop Frederick F. Campbell of Columbus, Ohio, is the latest Catholic bishop to instruct churches and schools that he oversees to not engage in fundraising for the Komen for the Cure organization because of its ties to Planned Parenthood.
Now that is a thought that chills me to the bone.
Extremely valid, and scary !
Beware the usual anti-Catholic hate in the comment section.
