A breasted interest

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.

    ANYONE who would fund the Margaret Sanger-founded Planned Parenthood, founded on a eugenics mission, has either evil principle or no principle.

    Why did Komen cave? Apparently she knows that Hell hath no fury like liberal women who are denied free money for their pet causes. You better not mess with their priorities, because you might find that they suddenly have no interest in curing breast cancer after all.

      Remains to be seen now if conservative America can now show them that the hornet’s nest they are kicking can cost them way more than the pittance that they had been slushing towards Planned Abortionhood. I know that my family is no longer planning to do the fundraising walk-thing that we used to. Will probably drop them a line expressing our displeasure as well.

    I am a woman who lives in the nulliparous state. I am well aware of the situation (thanx for making this point, Drrik!!). I am anti-abortion. And believe you me the idea that the Komen group would cave on this is sickening. They won’t ever get another dime from yours truly.

      Karen Handel, former earstwhile conservative running for Georgia governor, supposedly played zero part in the decision to defund Planned Abortionhood. Although that was one of the things she espoused when she went to work for Komen. Today she has been apparantly selected to be the fall guy as the least tenured veep and had her resignation cheerfully elicited.

        Komen is now strictly a political organization and deserves to be shunned. When I see a product in the store with that little pink ribbon I am going to make note of it, come home and write the manufacturer of said product that I will no longer buy what they are selling as they are supporting a political organization. Period. Gee, do I sound kind of wired or what?!
