KEEP UP WITH THE BREAKING KOMEN-PLANNED PARENTHOOD NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE
As abortion proponents are fighting to continue taxpayer funding to the nation's largest abortion provider, we are also learning about how Planned Parenthood has likely been fleecing well-intentioned supporters of the breast cancer organization Komen for the Cure. Komen claims that it allows grants to Planned Parenthood because they provide breast screenings. But staff at many Planned Parenthood clinics have revealed contradictory evidence, as revealed in an undercover investigation by Live Action, a Los Angeles based organization. As reported in the Washington Post:
"Every Planned Parenthood, without exception, tells her she will have to go elsewhere for a mammogram, and many clinics admit that no Planned Parenthood clinics provide this breast cancer screening procedure,” according to the group’s news release.

Pro-life citizens who are interested in fighting this deadly disease should be aware that one breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, has a policy of explicitly allowing its state affiliates to give monetary grants to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider.
READ THE FACTS FOR YOURSELF:
"The Komen Foundation is confident that none of its community Affiliates have stopped funding Planned Parenthood as a result of the pressure from Curves, Operation Save America or any other organization. In fact, when faced with opposition from Curves or the threat that Curves franchises would no longer support the Foundation unless Planned Parenthood funding was eliminated, the Komen Foundation told Mr. Heavin (founder and CEO of Curves) that we would not, in any way, undermine the integrity of our grant-making process. In addition the Foundation told Mr. Heavin that it would continue to allow Komen Affiliates to provide breast health education and screening grants to Planned Parenthood if the grant application was approved through the process outlined above. As a result, Curves chose to suspend its support of Komen Affiliate events, including sponsorship of the Komen Race for the Cure (r). In 2003, Komen Affiliates awarded $38.4 million in grants to support community outreach programs, including 21 grants to their local Planned Parenthood chapters totaling more than $475,000."
