Earlier this year the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure announced they would no longer contribute to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, after it was revealed that Planned Parenthood was the subject of a government inquiry.
But after caving to intense pressure from abortion activists, Komen reversed their decision and now plans to financially support at least 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates in 2012, according to the Christian Post.
This means everyday people like you and me, who go all out to raise money for breast cancer research in honor of a loved one, should know that if it is done on behalf of Komen, that money may very well end up funding a Planned Parenthood facility that provides abortions.
Komen, which is based in Dallas, Texas, funded 18 affiliates in 2011 for a total of around $680,000. The grants were intended for breast cancer research. Ironically, Planned Parenthood does not provide the screenings for breast cancer and has to refer women to other health care providers.
Nationwide, women are choosing to no longer support Komen and its partnership with Planned Parenthood.
A March 25 Komen race in Southern Arizona was short 7,267 participants of their goal of 11,000. The event also failed to meet their fundraising goal of $700,000 by over $100,000.
Another race in Indianapolis scheduled for next week is also expected to be at least 10,000 short of last year's 37,500 participants.
