Susan G. Komen Foundation & Planned Parenthood

Susan G. Komen Foundation funding abortion

While we see all the pink ribbons all over the place-on grocery items - from cereal boxes to yogurt, lets remember where the $$ is going.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation donated $25,000 to Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern Arizona, after the fundraiser Race for the Cure raised $1.8 million last month. The money was designated for programs providing "breast health education and early cancer detection in Coconino, Gila, Maricopa and Yavapai Counties."

And while I'm on this subject--make a note of groups that are asked to raise money for this "worthy cause". For example: Sororities are assisting the Susan G. Komen Foundation-as their National Philanthropy and in other fundraising functions.


The Phoenix diocesan newspaper, with endorsement from the bishop, is urging area
Catholics to petition for an end to abortion clinic funding by the local branch of one of the largest breast cancer foundations in the country.

And one more news item on Breast Cancer found over at WebMD....
