Know Where Donation Money Goes

Think you know where the funds that you donate to a specific cause go? Think again! Things are not always as they appear to be. For example, take a look at this unfortunate news:


'Race for Cure' Continues Funding Planned Parenthood

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's "Race for the Cure" is coming to Waco, Texas, on Saturday, and a state pro-life group wants everyone to know where their money is going.

John Pischiotta of Pro-Life Waco is spreading the word that the foundation donates large sums to Planned Parenthood.

"We're trying to raise awareness on the link between abortion and breast cancer, and point out that it is totally inappropriate for the Susan G. Komen Foundation to be making grants to the country's No. 1 abortion provider," Pischiotta told

Doesn't it seem like this "Race for the Cure" for breast cancer is absolutely EVERYWHERE these days? I see donation sponsors on products at the grocery store, in clothing stores, in ads in the newspaper and coupons, on websites, in ads on TV, newspapers and magazines. It seems like they have an endless reach towards the public! But when I found out that some funds are often funneled to abortion providers liked Planned Parenthood, I was totally disgusted!!

I have brought this issue up many times on this blog. Past posts here include:

Abortion Kills Babies, Hurts Women

It is amazing to me that a breast cancer research group would raise funds to fight it; yet donate funds to organizations that support and perform abortions. Science is showing that women who have abortions are more at risk for developing breast cancer!

What are we to make of all of this?

The Susan G. Komen foundation is a money making machine that doesn't even care that it is funding abortion providers with the money it makes via these "races for the cure" for breast cancer. That's deceptive and fraudulent, in my book of ethics.

I recently completed reading WND's Whistleblower Magazine on Ending Abortion: How the pro-life side will win the war. It was certainly very encouraging to read! One particular article, which is an excerpt from a book written by Jack Willke, M.D. "Back to the Drawing Board: The Future of the Pro-Life Movement," included the failures, the successes, the future and the conclusion that will eventually lead to a future victory for life.

Here are some of the successes:

Abortion remains the central social issue of our time.

Abortion in the U.S. is still a dirty word. An abortionist in the U.S. is still an outcast, especially within the medical profession. This is not true in many other nations, and it is an important deterrnet to abortion in this country.

Few U.S. hospitals still do abortions, which are largely confined to freestanding facilities staffed by abortionists, who are, again, not part of the respected medical community.

Is this a baby? This is no longer a question. Ultrasound and other medical advances have been incredibly important in this, but the pro-life movement was of central importance in teaching the nation, beyond any question of scientific doubt, that human life begins at fertilization.

Dr. Willke goes on to describe how religious groups have been able to work together on this issue. Religious radio is totally pro-life and a shining triumph in the U.S.

Here's the best part:

Willke writes:

Our movement has not just survived, but grown in the face of a militant, dedicated and powerful pro-abortion media and academia. It has grown, too, in spite of the much greater financial resources of the abortion industry.

One of the best tools being used today at counseling centers is the 4-D ultrasound machine which produces a crystal clear image of a mother's preborn baby. Sidewalk counseling is bringing in hundreds of women who see their unborn baby and realize that the pro-death crowd has lied to them. It is not a "bunch of cells," or a "blob of tissue," ITS A BABY!!

The myths of the pro-death crowd are being exposed,and refuted, as well. Prominent converts to the pro-life cause (Dr. Bernard Nathanson; Norma McCorvey) have become important leaders in the movement.

Dr. Willke concludes:

In the end, it will be the commitment and dedication of those within the pro-life movement that carry the day. Their devotion and perseverence are far beyond those within the pro-abortion movement. Without the media, the government and money, the pro-abortion movement collapses. Their strength is a mile wide but only a yard deep.

Yes! Changing hearts and minds on this issue is the key to making abortion unthinkable. It is my hope and prayer that the new scientific tools we have (such as the 4-D real time imaging of pre-born babies) will reveal how horrific abortion really is and thus, finally break through the calloused minds and hearts of anyone and everyone involved in the awful business of killing pre-born children.

Hi Christine -

I saw a bumper sticker the other day. It said, "Life is a gift, not a choice." Wow! I loved it.

Now that we know that abortion does not increase the risk of breast cancer, please apologize to the Race for a Cure people.

There is research that has been done that doesn't agree with your conclusion.

Besides, even if your assumption is true, it doesn't negate the fact that the Komen Foundation donates to affiliates who support and perform abortions.

Supporting affiliates that murder babies while trying to help women find a cure for breast cancer so they can live longer is not only a hypocritical stance, but also an oxymoronic position to take, IMO.
