“Unborn babies are people too”

the Susan Komen foundation supports abortion organizations. So, one group, innocent babies, has to pay with their lives to try and save the lives of another group....people with breast Cancer?
Also, ever notice the connection between chemical warfare in women's bodies (contraceptive potions and pills), and the prevalence of breast cancer?
You put dangerous chemicals into your body and expect no adverse consequences....dumb women?
Komen is laboriously spinning its partnership with Planned Parenthood. "Between 2003 and 2008, SGK gave $3 million to Planned Parenthood. In Fiscal Year 2008 alone, Planned Parenthood got $805,000 from SGK. SGK now has a webpage dedicated to defending its involvement with Planned Parenthood, including message points and a letter from a "pro-life Catholic." According to the 2008 Annual Report from Planned Parenthood, breast cancer services decreased by 4% and abortion procedures increased by 6%."

As one columnist notes, "While Susan G. Komen makes claims that these grants go for breast exams, once the funds go to Planned Parenthood they are fungible. For example, you can throw two twenty dollar bills into a purse, one from a friend and one from your own account, but when you go to pay the light bill you use both.

"The same is true with Planned Parenthood’s money it receives from Komen. Whenever someone applies for a grant they can say that while this $5,000 is going to breast cancer research, 20 percent of that money is going to pay for administrative costs like keeping the lights on and paying rent. So in essence, the money that people are raising to fight breast cancer is also going to keep the lights on at Planned Parenthood."

And then there's the news behind the news: " ...the son of the founder of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, who is also a member of the board, owns a business – a mall – together with a Planned Parenthood affiliate.... Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest's IRS 990 forms states that it has held a 12.5 percent share in Metro Centre, a mall in Peoria, Ill., since 2006. PPGNW is Washington's largest abortion provider.(It is also currently under investigation for Medicaid fraud.) Metro Centre is owned by Eric Brinker. Eric Brinker is the son of Nancy Goodman Brinker, the founder of SGK. Eric also sits on SGK's board."
