In recent years, I’ve learned that Susan G. Komen is NOT the charity company they want to us to believe they are. The money they are given is sometimes dispersed to other organizations unbeknownst to those of us who choose to donate.
Before I go any further, let me clarify that I support the fight against breast cancer and it is my prayer that one day, all cancers will be healed through a simple cure. But I do not support my money being given to a charity that’s given to other organizations without my approval or knowledge of.
Susan G. Komen gives millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood. They say they are giving money for breast health and screenings to help women without the needed funds to provide for themselves. Planned Parenthood and Komen lead us to believe these funds are used for mammograms. In reality, Planned Parenthood only provides wellness exams which includes a self-breast exam. You know, the kind we are supposed to do in the shower! But reality is, Planned Parenthood has to refer their patients elsewhere for mammograms.
Even though Susan G. Komen says they monitor the funds being spent for “wellness breast exams”, Planned Parenthood has free money provided to them which they do not use for its intended purpose and this then frees up their funds to provide more abortions.
Sadly, the founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger’ s original goal was “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.” These are Margaret Sanger’s words in her 1920 book, Woman and the New Race.
Susan G. Komen also has a mission of finding other charitable organizations and, using the money we have donated to them, sues them for using the term “for the cure” in their names. Really? As if breast cancer is the only cancer we want cured? Shouldn’t we all be united to find a common cure for cancer? Their agenda is is clearly for THEIR organization to succeed and no others.
There has also been evidence that shows there is a link between breast cancer and abortions. Although Susan G. Komen has released a statement that disproves this theory, there is much evidence to still believe there are links between the two. Why even take that chance? Because Susan G. Komen has ulterior motives – they provide funds for abortions, then more women are at risk for breast cancer, later in life those women fight to support Komen, and the cycle repeats itself. Makes sense to them!
I am by no means saying we should not fight for the cure for breast cancer. I’m saying, know your charities and how they spend the money you donate. Know their true goals and motives while fighting for cures. Rather than donate to Susan G. Komen and the death of an unborn child, provide that same money to a friend or relative suffering, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, American Cancer Society, or Relay for Life.
And even if you do not actually give your money to Komen, ANY of the “pink” stuff you buy is ultimately in support of Komen. We cannot ignore the bad a company does just because they do some good also. That isn’t an excuse for our children, our employers, or national leaders. It certainly shouldn’t be an excuse for a company fighting for the cure.
Know where your money goes! Take a stand for life!
