Susan G. Komen claims the millions they have given to Planned Parenthood does not go to abortions. But how do they know that for sure? Why even take the chance? That’s like saying it’s acceptable to give money to al-Qaeda so they can buy health insurance; We might not support what they do in terms of terrorism, but they at least deserve access to quality health care…
In a statement, the Susan G. Komen Foundation claimed:
“Early screening through mammograms and education is critical to end the suffering from this disease: 98 percent of women treated for early stage breast cancer, before it spreads, are alive five years later. The widespread use of mammography and heightened public awareness of breast cancer both contribute to these favorable statistics.
“And while Komen Affiliates provide funds to pay for screening, education and treatment programs in dozens of communities, in some areas, the only place that poor, uninsured or under-insured women can receive these services are through programs run by Planned Parenthood.
“These facilities serve rural women, poor women, Native American women, women of color, and the un- and under-insured. As part of our financial arrangements, we monitor our grantees twice a year to be sure they are spending the money in line with our agreements, and we are assured that Planned Parenthood uses these funds only for breast health education, screening and treatment programs.”
Of course, Planned Parenthood doesn’t offer mammograms. They only give referrals to other clinics.
Over the past 5 years, Susan G. Komen has given over $3 million to Planned Parenthood. Supporting an organization that supports Planned Parenthood is unacceptable, and here is why:
-They have been implicated in aiding sex trafficking of minors.
-They were founded by a crazy radical eugenicist named Margaret Sanger, whose stated purpose was to limit the births of “unfit” children:
“In her 1920 book, Woman and the New Race, Sanger explicitly called her work ‘nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or those who will become defectives.’ As she wrote in The Birth Control Review, ‘the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the overfertility of the mentally and physically defective.’”
The history gets even worse, and even more racist and objectionable:
“Sanger was not the only eugenicist involved with Planned Parenthood. Alan Guttmacher, president of Planned Parenthood from 1962-1974, once told a Planned Parenthood gathering, “The mentally retarded and the mentally defective . . . insidiously are replacing the people of normal mentality.
“Guttmacher, Sanger, and others in Planned Parenthood actively courted the involvement of eugenicists. In the 1920s, the ‘National Council’ of her American Birth Control League had at least 23 persons involved at a prominent level in eugenics-nearly one-half the entire council!
“The American Eugenic Society (AES) officially endorsed her group in 1932, and Sanger was a dues-paying member of the AES through the 1960s. Among those on her council was Lothrop Stoddard, a prominent racist who wrote The Rising Tide of Color Against White Supremacy and who also published eugenic articles in Sanger’s magazine.”
-They have enthusiastically claimed they would accept donations to be used specifically on abortions of minorities for racist purposes.
The list of atrocities goes on and on. There are far too many to put in this post. I highly encourage you to research the matter for yourself. If you’re interested in helping fight breast cancer, there are many quality organizations out there. Before you volunteer or give money to one, ask them if they give money to Planned Parenthood.
