The Susan G Komen for the Cure, formerly known as The Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation has waffled in its decision to pull the funding that it had been given to Planned Parenthood, one of the major funders and suppliers of abortions in America. Last year they had kicked $650,000 towards Planned Parenthood, which is enough to pay the salaries of maybe two of its chief executives, well above the average CEO salary in this country. But Planned Parenthood purports that this will stop the critical cancer screening that they have been doing for 170,000 women last year. Which works out to about $3.75 towards the total cost of each of those screenings?
The kicker is that one of the things that seems to predispose women to breast cancer is the nulliparous state. It seems that bear a child and then nursing that child is protective against breast cancer. So all of the abortions that Planned Parenthood has been funding, 332278 in 2009, and up from that in 2010, roughly a quarter of all the abortions in America, does more to increase the risk of breast cancer in America than any other factor.
So why is the Komen group, which purportedly wants to find a cure for breast cancer, still funding an organization that operates to actually increase it? It’s not about the money, since the amount involved is not that big a factor in the funding of Planned Parenthood, which gets way more tax dollars (better than $360 million) than the pittance that Komen has been directing their way. It’s not the money, it’s the principle. Komen has none.
Feet of clay.
