Another Komen affiliate is sending thousands of dollars to the nations biggest abortion business following the national controversy over Komens initial decision, and subsequent reversal, to deny Planned Parenthood funding.
The North Jersey affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced Friday that Planned Parenthood is among the recipients of more than $1.2 million in total grants to 18 local organizations. A news report reveals the Komen chapter had given a $20,000 grant to the local Planned Parenthood abortion business last year and chose to renew the grant this year.
Komen North Jersey spokeswoman Kathi Edelson Wolder said Friday the organization had an independent panel review all its grant applications.
Planned Parenthood was found worthy in terms of its patient education and how they measure up to our priorities in meeting the needs of women and men in our community, she said.
In a press release Friday, the organization added that this years grants are based on a comprehensive, biannual community profile conducted in 2011 to make sure the programs address unmet needs.
Earlier this year, after the dustup, the Washington Post reported that at least 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates will be funded this year, about the same number that received grants in 2011, according to a tally provided by Komen.
Additional grants may continue to be awarded because not all of the 122 Komen affiliates base awards on the fiscal year that began April 1. Planned Parenthood has said its Komen grants totaled about $680,000 in 2011 and went to at least 19 of its 79 affiliates, it said.
In April, Susan G. Komen for the Cures Austin Affiliate announced that it would award more than $1.4 million in grants this year to local organizations, including Planned Parenthood, according to one local news report. Planned Parenthood of the Texas Capital Region will receive $45,000 even though Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms and despite the fact that abortion increases a womans risk of contracting breast cancer.
Figures from August 2011 directly from the Komen for the Cure foundation show 18 affiliates of the breast cancer charity gave a total of more than $569,000 to the Planned Parenthood abortion business in 2010. That was down from the $731,303 Komen officials publicly confirmed in October 2010, when they acknowledged that 20 of the 122 Komen affiliates gave to Planned Parenthood during the 2009 fiscal year.
Komen spokeswoman Leslie Aun appeared apologetic about the decision to revoke funding to Planned Parenthood, in her comments to the Post.
We know that people have been upset and concerned about recent events, she said. Weve acknowledged our missteps and apologized. People need to know that we have not and never will walk away from women in need. There is no one filling the gap in services the way that Komen is.
The renewal of funding to the Planned Parenthood abortion business is upsetting for Austin Ruse, the president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, who initially had hoped Komen would stay true to its initial decisions.
Komen knows the truth about Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms. It is sad they could not hold out against the mafia-like onslaught of this awful group, he told LifeNews.
The donations will certainly prompt the continued boycott of the Komen breast cancer group by millions of pro-life Americans who find it disingenuous that the womens organization would partner with an abortion business when abortions are linked to an increase in breast cancer and when Planned Parenthood has been proven to mislead the public by falsely claiming it performs mammograms.
Meanwhile, the newest research on the link between abortion and breast cancer reveals abortion certainly plays a role in increasing the breast cancer risk.
A January 2010 study called abortion a known risk factor for breast cancer and cited a study conducted by the prestigious Janet Daling group of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Daling and her colleagues showed between a 20 and 50 percent increased breast cancer risk for women having abortions compared to those who carried their pregnancies to term.
A May 2012 study published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention in February reported a very statistically significant increased risk of breast cancer for women with previous abortions as opposed to women who have never had one.
And microbiologist Dr. Gerard Nadal, who has a PhD in Molecular Microbiology from St Johns University in New York, has spent 16 years teaching science, most recently at Manhattan College, has been profiling more than 100 studies on his blog showing abortions link to breast cancer.

The bottom line is that Komen is PRO-ABORTION.

so, i thought women who have abortions suffer a higher risk of cancer later on and Komen was formed to fight cancer in women, yet Komen supports abortion through Planned Parenthood. Sooooo....
why bother saving women from CA if you murder female fetuses???
the mind boggles! How ironic.
NO Komen affiliate or Corporate Business ( not charity) will get any money from me. IMHO Their business isn’t cancer - it’s money.
You folks dont understand that by increasing the number of abortions, especially abortions of female babies, will result in the decrease of adult females who get breast cancer. Thus the Komen Foundation will be meeting its goal of reducing the number of women who get breast cancer, thus there will be fewer of whom there will be a need to create a cure for. (sarc off)
It would never have occurred to me that Planned Parenthood would be sought out by men concerned about breast cancer. Who'da thunkit?
One would hope that the ridiculous spectacle of our major-league athletes wearing pink would stop, now that it’s clear that those pink ribbons stand for the babies who are murdered with money from the Komen criminals.
Planned Parenthood selectively kills female babies on request.
Komen supports this killing of women.
You Lib logic is scairy!ha.
No wonder I didn’t get their great moral cause, maybe they will end up getting an AWARD for saving all those women from breast ca...as for men who get breast cancer, well the heck with them! They’re all sexist chauvinists anyways.
Komen for the Cure and Planned Parenthood are frauds.
One of the recipients is St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Paterson, NJ, run by the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth :(
