Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Brings More Trouble Upon Itself

Em wrote about one of their recent walks here. The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation isn't really the shining, untarnished star of the cancer foundations, and it seems they may be as "in bed" with Planned Parenthood as the American Cancer Society, if not more so.

"The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer applauds Eve Sanchez Silver's courageous decision to resign her position as a charter member of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council (SGK) during the group's Dallas meeting last week. Silver is the director of Cinta Latina Research. [1] She's a popular speaker and a medical research analyst working as a breast cancer research advocate with premier U.S. cancer research facilities.

"Silver, a two-time breast cancer survivor, was motivated to resign after reading a coalition press release revealing that Komen's affiliates have helped fund Planned Parenthood. [2] In her September 24 press release announcing her resignation, Silver said, 'It makes me wonder what other abortion related agendas SGK may be supporting, like the black-out on the 16 statistically significant epidemiological studies linking abortion to breast cancer. Is one hand washing the other?' [3]

"Silver was also understandably disturbed about Planned Parenthood's ideological origins in eugenics. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, often wrote about her desire to rid the world of people of color.

"Kristin Kelly, formerly SGK's Public Relations Manager, reported that SGK affiliates had given 21 grants to their local Planned Parenthood chapters totaling more than $475,000. [5] The funds were allegedly intended for breast cancer screenings and physician referrals."
So if we go on those walks or support them in any way, even with our time, how much of what we give helps Planned Parenthood pay for offices and workers to dispense 633,756 Morning After Pills a year, or to help them perform 227,385 abortions? (Those were the numbers in their own 2002-03 Annual Report, and that was a 6% increase over 2001, so maybe by now, it's 255,490 abortions per year, if that rate kept up these last two years.)
