The Komen Betrayal

It is sad that organizations ostensibly committed to very worthy causes align themselves with the insidious child-killing industry. But, that is just what the United Way and the March of Dimes have done for years. Now, add the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation to that list.

As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, Komen is committed "to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures." Largely thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the organization has become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

Alas, it has also become a significant contributor to the abortion monolith, Planned Parenthood. Indeed, during the past five years breast cancer donors have, unbeknownst to them, poured nearly $4 million into the already bloated coffers of the organization responsible for more than a quarter of all the abortions performed in the United States and perhaps a third of all the child-killing procedures world-wide. Rather than focusing on saving lives, Komen has become a cozy partner with Planned Parenthood in the nasty business of snuffing out lives.

October is the month for breast cancer awareness, but it has become increasingly difficult for those who actually care about women's health issues to lend their support to the cause because of this brazen betrayal by Komen.
