Unreal. Why would an organization claiming to fight breast cancer give funds to Planned parenthood, who performs abortions, which are proven to be linked to breast cancer? Also, Planned Parenthood does NOT perform mammograms.
This is exactly why I won't give to Komen or buy any product with the pink ribbon. I'd like to donate to breast cancer research, but I prefer to do so without giving to the country's largest abortionist
Another Komen affiliate is sending thousands of dollars to the nation’s biggest abortion business following the national controversy over Komen’s initial decision, and subsequent reversal, to deny Planned Parenthood funding.
The North Jersey affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced Friday that Planned Parenthood is among the recipients of more than $1.2 million in total grants to 18 local organizations. A news report reveals the Komen chapter had given a $20,000 grant to the local Planned Parenthood abortion business last year and chose to renew the grant this year.
Komen North Jersey spokeswoman Kathi Edelson Wolder said Friday the organization had an independent panel review all its grant applications.
“Planned Parenthood was found worthy in terms of its patient education and how they measure up to our priorities in meeting the needs of women and men in our community,” she said.
In a press release Friday, the organization added that this year’s grants are based on a “comprehensive, biannual community profile” conducted in 2011 to make sure the programs address unmet needs.
