I used to run in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. It was a fun, classy 5K that sent me running through the rock-lined streets in Tyler, TX many Mother’s Day weekends. And then I found out that the Komen Foundation donates masses of money to Planned Parenthood. Instantly, there was no question that my money would never be associated with the Komen Foundation again. Too many places actually help women with breast cancer without donating money to a place that perpetuates the cause of it. I’ve written about this a few times and the debates have rolled in, both on public comments and from my own friends. The argument was, of course, that Planned Parenthood did some good things. And hey, Komen gives money to them for mammograms and breast cancer screenings, not abortions.
The argument didn’t hold water before. Any money you give to an organization that kills the unborn helps them keep doing that. You can’t designate your donation to only do moral things.
Of course on Wednesday the whole ship sank with the truth about even the alleged good Planned Parenthood does splashed all over every pro-life news outlet and Live Action’s latest video revealed that Planned Parenthood doesn’t even help women with breast cancer. If you missed it, you can watch the video below.
