Race For the Cure and Abortion on Demand

It's pink ribbon time! Yes, time to give, give, give to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help find a cure for breast cancer and also to help fund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood? What do they have to do with fighting breast cancer? Nothing as far as we know but that didn't stop the Susan G. Komen Foundation from writing checks for nearly half-a-million dollars to Planned Parenthood in 2003 and as recently as 2006 still was giving tens-of-thousands of dollars to fund abortion clinics. The Waco chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation gives a yearly gift of $35,000 to Planned Parenthood.

Since there still is plenty of controversy and conflicting information about a connection between abortion and breast cancer, I guess it would be too cynical of me to think that Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood were working together to perpetuate the need for the Susan G. Komen foundation. But then again, maybe it isn't.

At least the question should be asked: “Why is money donated by well meaning people to help fight breast cancer being turned over to an organization that kills babies? Find another way to support a cure for breast cancer. Susan G. Komen doesn't deserve your money.


  1. I should consider the source when reading a catholic blog, but I must make commentary when it comes to breast cancer. We are far from knowing the answers to breast cancer, but from personal experience only I can honestly say high hormones during pregnancy plays a role. If I had not had my baby, and got an abortion, would my cancer have appeared? Just food for thought.
    If you don’t believe that premenopausal women are discovering cancer while pregnant do some reseach rather than just standing on a soap box. It is not about the money it is about saving the life of the mother who already has children. Or would you prefer she dies to save the baby so the father must raise them alone, assuming there is a father. Conclusion continue to donate to child bearing women need research and help.

  2. Are you saying that having abortions is reducing the number of women getting breast cancer because they have fewer children that way? I’m not sure I get your point.

  3. I would recommend that people interested in contributing to finding a cure for breast cancer consider giving their time and resources to the American Cancer Society. Their website is http://www.cancer.org. The American Cancer Society funds research programs and does not contribute to unrelated or ancillary organizations like the Susan B. Komen Foundation does by giving money to Planned Parenthood. Overwhelmingly ACS funds go to research with the remaining funds going to educational efforts. In my own family, we have had three successive generations of women – my great-grandmother, my grandmother and my mother, suffer from breast cancer. My family is concerned that efforts to “find a cure” are targeted and money is used directly, without any political agenda. ACS does not have the political agenda that the Susan B. Komen Foundation has – they want to help save lives, prevent the development of cancer, and they stick to their core purpose. ACS has contributed over $3 billion directly to cancer research – SBK pales in comparison.

  4. The Mayo Clinic found a link between contraceptives and breast cancer. Why do we not hear anything about that?


  5. Maybe Mike says it better; IT IS ABOUT SAVING THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER!

  6. Oh, definitely keep giving to cancer research foundations, just not to ones that turn around and give that money to abortionists.

  7. I recently seen a commercial for breast cancer. awareness On the back of their shirts it said, everyone deserves a lifetime. That’s pretty ironic they chose this slogan since they support murdering our babies. Maybe they should of put, we save breast and murder our babies!
