October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but please don’t let your money race off to Planned Parenthood!
The Susan G. Komen Foundation sponsors Race for the Cure events across the nation each year. So far in 2018 Komen races have been held in Louisiana in Youngsville, Baton Rouge, Monroe, and Bossier City. A final race is set for Oct. 20 in New Orleans.
Komen says the money raised in these races is used for research and to fund grants to agencies providing screening tests and interventions crucial to women’s health, such as free screening or diagnostic mammograms, breast MRIs, and breast biopsies.
But the Susan G. Komen Foundation compromises its own mission to find a cure for breast cancer by associating and providing funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. While the group performs more than 30 percent of all abortions in the U.S., Planned Parenthood performs ZERO mammograms.
That’s right. Planned Parenthood does not, nor has it ever, performed mammograms. Yet Komen, which decided in 2012 it would no longer award grants to Planned Parenthood, caved within days of that announcement and has continued to provide funding to the group each year.
In addition to its support of Planned Parenthood, Susan G. Komen agrees with Planned Parenthood in that abortion does not increase the risk of breast cancer.
But several studies show otherwise, concluding there is an abundance of scientific data showing that terminating a pregnancy is not only a real cause of cancer, but an unusually potent one.
In fact, as of 2014, at least 28 epidemiological studies worldwide show a positive abortion breast cancer (ABC) link, with 21 pointing to a statistically significant risk. (Click here to learn more)
