Today’s politically correct tempest centers on whether the Susan G. Komen foundation should have permitted Kentucky Fried Chicken to be involved in their breast cancer fund-raising, with some claiming that the Colonel’s do-goodness is canceled out with his high-cholesterol and obesity-causing fried chicken.
So while liberals fuss that Komen is allowing itself to be used to improve KFC’s public image, they don’t fuss when Komen does it for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s top abortion business.
Figures show some Komen affiliates (not Kansas) have given Planned Parenthood $3 million between 2003 and 2008 and $805,000 in the 2008 fiscal year. The money has been claimed as designated for breast exams, but whether or not it was used for that, the Komen relationship allows PP to
- create a positive public image as a “trusted health care provider;”
- gain access to another group of consumers who come for exams;
- identify itself as pro-woman while hurting women’s health for profit.
Planned Parenthood’s mission is promoting and selling abortion and chemical contraception– the two most avoidable behaviors that raise women’s risk of breast cancer.
Komen’s website does not spell out this “Politically Incorrect” information, although the site acknowledges that childbearing protects women from breast cancer, and the more children a mother bears and the younger she begins bearing them the better. (Tragically, the Kansas health department fails to tell women this when they are considering abortion.)
Since abortion undermines breast cancer-preventative childbearing and breast-feeding, abortion raises breast cancer risk and abortion businesses in no way deserve money from a group dedicated to eradicating breast cancer.
