The other day in the grocery store I noticed an awful lot of pink -- pink t-shirts, pink totes, pink rubber duckies. They're all being sold with proceeds benefiting breast cancer research. I'm all for money being spent on cancer research. It's certainly hopeful.
What's not hopeful, is the Susan G. Komen Foundation. You probably already know about the connection, but if you don't, here it is. The Susan G. Komen Foundation supports abortion.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure awarded 72 grants to Planned Parenthood affiliates during the years 2000 through 2005.So, when you see those pink ribbons, don't assume you're doing a good thing. In fact, the Susan G. Komen Foundation is not the only non-profit organization that supports PP. It's not even the only cancer research non-profit that supports PP. The American Cancer Society is on the list, too.
Komen claims that grant money to Planned Parenthood is for breast services only, but Planned Parenthood records show that their breast services are declining while their abortion numbers are increasing.
In 2003, Komen Affiliates awarded $38.4 million in grants to support community outreach programs, including 21 grants to their local Planned Parenthood chapters totaling more than $475,000."

Those pretty pink ribbons are enticing, but they are also deceiving. The irony is, recent studies confirm that abortion is the best predictor of breast cancer. Do you think PP includes that in their informed consent?
