I wish ALL Dioceses would do this, because 1. Komen gives a lot of money to Planned Parenthood, the country's biggest abortionist, and 2. There is a proven link between abortion and breast cancer.
The Archdiocese of Atlanta recently sent a memo to its parishes announcing they are to end support for Susan G. Komen for the Cure over the organization's ties with Planned Parenthood.
“The Archdiocese of Atlanta is concerned about the protection of human life, especially the precious unborn lives of babies,” archdiocesan communications director, Pat Chivers, told CNA Oct. 8.
“It's our opportunity to teach about the dignity of all human beings, and the protection for unborn babies, and this is the teaching of the Catholic Church.”
The memo was issued to all archdiocesan entities Oct. 1 in response to requests from parishes.
As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Komen is using the upcoming weeks to raise its profile and to fundraise. As part of its local efforts, the organization will have a “Worship in Pink Weekend” in Atlanta, asking churches to have their parishioners wear pink to honor survivors and to promote early detection.
