Komen for the Cure: Funding Abortion & Planned Parenthood

Here’s an article from about 3 weeks ago over at LifeNews.com highlights the donations from Susan G. Komen for the Cure to Planned Parenthood for abortions instead of mammograms , and how Komen tries to dance around the issue:

In new emails Susan G. Komen for the Cure is sending to people complaining about their grants to the Planned Parenthood abortion business, officials claim the grants are given to help women obtain breast cancer screenings.  Yet, Komen also admits Planned Parenthood doesn’t do mammograms.  Last year, Komen spokesman John Hammarley confirmed 20 of Komen’s 122 affiliates have made donations to Planned Parenthood and, in 2009, those contributions totaled $731,303.  He also confirmed Komen affiliates contributed about $3.3 million to the abortion business from 2004-2009.  In a new form letter to one pro-life person who complained about the grants, obtained by LifeNews.com, Komen explains the donations, but says 19 affiliates have donated.

“Thanks very much for writing to share your concern with us.  Recent questions have arisen regarding a limited number of Susan G. Komen for the Cure community grants to Planned Parenthood breast health programs, specifically those designed to provide screening mammograms for vulnerable populations, e.g., low-income and uninsured

women,” Komen says.  “Currently, 19 Komen for the Cure Affiliates award 19 local grants specifically to Planned Parenthood-sponsored programs in their communities to pay for breast cancer education and breast screenings.”

However, a late March expose’ from Live Action revealed no Planned Parenthood centers nationally provide mammograms.

Live Action released videotaped footage of calls to 30 Planned Parenthood centers nationwide in 27 different states where abortion facility staff were asked whether or not mammograms could be performed on site.  Every one of the Planned Parenthood centers admitted they could not do mammograms.  Every Planned Parenthood, without exception, tells the women calling that they will have to go elsewhere for a mammogram, and many clinics admit that no Planned Parenthood clinics provide this breast cancer screening procedure.

We don’t provide those services whatsoever,” admits a staffer at Planned Parenthood of Arizona while a staffer at Planned Parenthood’s Comprehensive Health Center clinic in Overland Park, Kansas tells a caller, “We actually don’t have a, um, mammogram machine, at our clinics.

“In its email to people concerned about the Komen-Planned Parenthood connection, a Komen official admits Planned Parenthood doesn’t provide mammograms for women with its grant money.  Komen makes it clear the money is merely funneled through the abortion business to legitimate medical centers that actually perform mammograms.”

Clearly the propaganda from Planned Parenthood about supporting women’s health is a red herring, for they are in the abortion business.  Any limited ‘women’s health’ issue is design as a matter of every day policy at Planned Parenthood to sell their patients one or more abortions.  Disgusting practice, especially when young educated women refuse to see the fallacy of Planned Parenthood in our culture for fear of violating the ideology of ‘women’s health.’
