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.
