If anyone wants to know where they CAN donate, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, I believe, does not support any murderous organizations.

FYI. I avoid the American Cancer Society because it supports the destruction of human embryos for research. ACS also refuses to discuss oral contraceptives as carcinogens or the link between breast cancer & abortion.

In my opinion, they’re just as evil.

Too many women are for the killing of their children.

Quite true.

We can fight this through the age old, and conservative method of competition. Does anyone know of a Pro-Life Organization that provides reproductive health services and breast cancer screening for the poor that we can donate to. If we direct dollars there, PP would flounder and die.

they had one heck of a fundraiser for PP this week. Glad I didn’t give them any money ( glad they caved before the weekend, as they would have had some of my money then).

No doubt Komen received quite a few donations from pro-lifers who now regret doing so.

And why did pro-lifers donate?

Komen never stopped funding PP, they simply announced that they were going to in most areas.

They never acted on principle, but only to stay out of Congressional investigation.

Does that group actively hide the research showing the abortion-breast cancer link and/or the mechanism by which first-trimester abortion causes cancer?

Too bad they caved, but at least they admitted to providing funding to PP. Maybe it will enlighten the ones who are ignorant to this issue.

Not unexpected. Reminds me very much of when Dayton/Hudson stores decided to stop funding Planned Parenthood and then quickly reversed course.

You are either of the world or you are of God and if you are of the world, you will not see clearly the pain caused by abortion and will succumb to the financial pressure to live as the world does. I’m sure the Komen people would face serious loss of funding if they weren’t promoted by the liberal media and liberal groups. After all, there’s no way the Komen people would be everpresent in the media without towing the liberal line.

I knew this would come out the way it did but now they have made themselves more publicly aligned with funding Planned Parenthood so more people of God will choose not to support them.

It’s too bad they caved but now their bloodied hands are far more visible. Prior to the events of this week it took a whole lot more explaining to convince people of the Komen-PP link. There are a whole lot more people now who won’t be participating and donating to their walks and other fundraisers. Watch Komen’s donor income plummet over the next year.

Lots of FOOLS out there nutmeg, and they have just opted to continue to fund the GENOCIDE of the UNBORN through the K foundation. Well they don't fool me, not one dime will I send them or buy products with pink ribbons on them unless it says Breast Cancer Foundation, seems they don't fund PP with our donations.

Our quilt group raises $1,000 a year, and that is where we send the money, we checked out Breast Cancer Foundation after many of our members asked if they funded PP with our donations, and the answer was NO.

komen will just go under the table to do it!

And I am going to add a piece of advice for ALL women who have had hysterectomies make sure your GYN checks your bladder very thoroughly each time you go for your pap smear. Seems PROLAPSED BLADDER is EXTREMELY COMMON for those of us who have had to have hysterectomies for various reasons. I've had my 'lesson' on this for the past year! Now facing surgery to repair it 25 years later. Why didn't they just tack the bladder in it's proper place while they were doing the hysterectomy in the first place so it would not Prolapse years later?

Abortion is highly correlated with an increase in breast cancer, but hey, never let the facts of science get in the way of a progs desire to exterminant the innocent.

I quit supporting this group sometime ago.
I consider life a gift and in this day and age cannot
understand the use of abortion for any kind of birth control.
I can understand the main three exceptions and can live with that but anything else I just don’t think so.

54+ Million in the USA alone since Roe v Wade! GENOCIDE BY ANY WAY YOU LOOK AT IT! Time for Christians to wake up, and start spreading the TRUTH, and go back to the Bible’s teaching about killing. Maybe we ought to take heed of the book of Jeremiah better.

4Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

5Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

6Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.

7But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.

8Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

9Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

10See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

11Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. 12Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.

13And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north. 14Then the LORD said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land. 15For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the LORD; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah. 16And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands. 17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them. 18For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.

19And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.

Why give to the American Cancer Society? They have one of the highest expense ratios for a nonprofit.
Of all the Billions upon Billions given just where does all this money go?
After over 40 years of the war on Cancer we are not that much further along with treatment options, just a better delivery system.
I will never give another dime to the AMS.

I don’t think they actively hide any research but I think the research you site is controversial even among pro-lifers.

The whole country now knows they’re joined at the hip to Margaret Sanger’s death machine. I look forward to seeing to seeing a lot less pink running ribbons at the grocery store this October. And now, any company that sponsors Komen in anyway gets a lifetime ban from me.

If there is a causal connection between abortions and breast cancer then giving to a prolife group would be sort of the same as giving to an organization dedicated to fighting breast cancer, wouldn’t it?

If you gave money to Komen this week in support of their new grant policy only to see that grant policy reversed, you can call 800.996.3329 for a refund. They're more than happy to help.

FWIW,

Actually, the facts aren’t the least bit controversial. It also makes perfect sense when you think it through.

We’re just a society in denial. And Planned Parenthood will do anything to prevent the facts from seeing the light.

There’s a wealth of information on the matter here:

In a roundabout way, I guess. By helping to reduce the number of abortions you’d be reducing the number of breast cancer victims.

LOTS of irate callers this morning - mostly women - who had no idea that Komen has been supporting Planned Parenthood for so many years. All callers said they would stop giving money to Komen and/or participating in Komen run/walk races which raise money for the organization.

the more the merrier...I'm sure there is another group more deserving

I’ve had the same conversations with the women in my “good Catholic family”. The response I always got was, “Where’d you hear that, the internet?”. I guess now that they’ve heard it on the TV, it’s suddenly legitimate.

I expect an ACORN-style rebranding for Komen in the near future. They’re damaged goods now.

Only saw it reported once, but I heard that PP got a huge sympathy boost in donations after Komen yanked funding. Then the reportage returned to the usual crap about Komen caving to pro-lifers. Now they really have caved, and it’ll be reported as a victory for women’s health care.
