Why pro-lifers don’t support Susan B. Koman who supports Planned “Kill-the-Babies” Parenthood

Susan G. Komen for the Cure Partners with Planned Parenthood

Over the past couple of weeks, pro-lifers have been abuzz with news regarding Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s pink ribbons and its support of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. According to Life News, figures recently released show that 18 affiliate locations of Komen for the Cure donated more than $569,000 to Planned Parenthood throughout 2010. This release resulted in backlash from pro-lifers, especially from those who have devoutly supported the Komen foundation in the past.

Although there has been confusion and misunderstanding on whether Komen funds in Ohio go to Planned Parenthood, Ohio Right to Life has confirmed that these funds do indirectly support Planned Parenthood. Komen affiliates are required to send a minimum of 25% of their local funds* to the national office. National funds are used for grants and also flow back into their affiliate chapters which again, donated $569,000 to Planned Parenthood in 2010!

As such, several Catholic Bishops in Ohio have released statements over the summer signaling an end of their support for the organization. Any schools or parishes in those dioceses previously involved with fundraisers for the Komen foundation will not be involved any longer.

Cleveland Right to Life has led the educational effort in Ohio on this link between Komen and Planned Parenthood. Visit their website at www.ClevelandRightToLife.org to read more about the connection. All pro-lifers should work tirelessly to help find a cure for breast cancer. However, our hard-earned dollars should never be used either directly or indirectly to support Planned Parenthood in any way, shape or form.

Ohio Right to Life urges all of its members to educate themselves on this connection with Planned Parenthood and consider the dramatic impact. For more information, contact us.
