Komen, Planned Parenthood and US senators
Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer Chastises Uninformed Democratic Senators: Planned Parenthood Doesn't Do Mammograms and Damages Women's Health / Susan G. Komen for the Cure Was Right to Halt Planned Parenthood Funding
Today, the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer responded to a letter from 26 U.S. senators that called on Susan G. Komen for the Cure to resume its funding of Planned Parenthood.
"Contrary to what 26 overwrought Democratic senators and Big Media would have us believe," said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, "Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms and doesn't offer breast cancer treatment. Planned Parenthood is fundamentally an abortion business that provides manual breast exams and refers women elsewhere for mammograms, thereby delaying breast cancer diagnosis and treatment."
"Planned Parenthood causes breast cancer by selling women cancer-causing abortions and oral contraceptives (the pill), which the World Health Organization includes on its list of the most cancer-causing substances known to mankind (Group 1 carcinogens). 1 What's the bottom line? Planned Parenthood hurts women's health. Komen was right to halt funding for Planned Parenthood.
"Medical texts say having more children, starting at a younger age and breast feeding them longer helps prevent breast cancer. Let me spell it out for you, senators," said Mrs. Malec. "Planned Parenthood robs women of the protective effect of childbearing."
The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer is an international women's organization founded to protect the health and save the lives of women by educating and providing information on abortion as a risk factor for breast cancer.
