Susan G. Komen Drops Funding for Planned Parenthood

The Story: The Associated Press reports that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation's leading breast-cancer charity, will cut off its partnership through which it provided cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood clinics. According to Planned Parenthood, Komen grants totaled roughly $680,000 last year and $580,000 the year before, funding at least 19 Planned Parenthood affiliates. Komen told the AP that it ended its partnership with Planned Parenthood because of a congressional investigation into the organization.

The Background: The House Energy and Commerce Committee is investigating Planned Parenthood because of allegations of abuses ranging from financial disparities to its compliance with federal regulations on taxpayer funding to concerns that it is covering up cases of sex trafficking.

As Christianity Today notes, "activists on both sides of the abortion fight are speculating on the involvement of Karen Handel, Komen's senior vice president of public policy, in the decision." When Handel, the former secretary of state of Georgia, ran for governor in 2010, part of her platform was to eliminate state grants to Planned Parenthood.

What It Means: Planned Parenthood contends that the Komen foundation is yielding to longstanding pressure from anti-abortion groups, which Komen denies, says the New York Times.

As the NYT notes, "Anti-abortion advocates and Web sites have criticized the Komen foundation's financing of Planned Parenthood for years. And in December, LifeWay Christian Resources, which is owned by the Southern Baptist Convention, said it was recalling a pink Bible it was selling at Walmart and other stores because a dollar per copy was going to the Komen foundation and the foundation supported Planned Parenthood."

26 Deomocrat Senators are pushing for Komen to reverse this descion and help fund abortion!!. Just sick is what it is.

Two dozen Senators call on Komen to reverse Planned Parenthood decision

The letter is signed by Senators Lautenberg, Murray, Mikulski, Boxer, Cantwell, Gillibrand, Menendez, Wyden, Blumenthal, Shaheen, Begich, merkley, Tester, Akaka, Sanders, (Sherrod) Brown, Leahy, Baucus, Cardin, Feinstein, Franken, and Kerry.

That relatively conservative senators like Begich and Tester signed the letter is testament to how broad the opposition to this decision has really become.

More soon...


UPDATE: The total number of signatories is now 26; the new additions include senators McCaskill, Stabenow, Coons, and Bingaman.

Komen officials quit as charity buried under tens of thousands of e-mails

Huffington Post gleefully reported today that three Komen officials have now resigned and one more is threatening to, as the “backlash gains steam” over its decision to sever financial ties with Planned Parenthood.

The fools don’t realize what is happening. Every Komen exec who quits over the Planned Parenthood flak is good news for our side, one less pro-abort with clout in the United States’ most influential breast cancer foundation. Komen is undergoing a cleansing of its liberal bastion.

Perhaps now Komen will acknowledge the link between abortion and breast cancer, which, thanks to the Planned Parenthood flak, is getting renewed attention.

CEO Nancy Brinker’s (pictured left) eyes have certainly been opened these past couple days. I’m sure the former friend of Planned Parenthood is reevaluating a lot of things. She needs our prayers.

My source inside Komen tells me its email system crashed several times today due to the volume of emails. (Yes, my site has crashed several times today, too, due to a combination of invading bots and high traffic.)

At last count emails in support of Komen were at 20,000 and those in opposition straggled behind at 10,000. Keep the emails coming (although be warned the link may be down).

Meanwhile, Brinker said on a conference call today donations are up 100% since Komen announced it was severing its financial relationship with Planned Parenthood.

Since it is well known that conservatives are more generous givers than liberals (aside from grandstanders, something conservative givers are not), I’m betting all those pro-aborts huffing and puffing that they are going to stop giving to Komen never gave in the first place. Meanwhile, conservatives who have been withholding funds from Komen are loosening their purse strings.

There is also now an interesting battle of congressional letters emerging.

ABC has posted a letter signed by 26 senators asking Komen to restore funding to the United States’ largest abortion provider. No surprise, the signers are all Democrat pro-aborts, save one Independent/Socialist pro-abort.

 But never fear, I’m told a pro-Komen letter is now circulating in Congress. The final count of legislators supporting Komen vs. opposing Komen should go our way, although I doubt the media will be interested in reporting that.

Brinker released a video last night, saying in it what she said to reporters today, that “the charity was trying to refocus grants on providers that are able to perform mammography services rather than just breast screenings,” just as my source indicated yesterday was Komen’s fallback plan for breaking up with Planned Parenthood.

Pro-lifers Bryan Kemper and Andy Moore have launched an “I Stand with Komen” petition drive.

They have made the icon, right, to post on your Facebook page as your profile photo.

One final note, our tolerant friends on the left hacked into Komen’s site last night.

After cutting ties with Planned Parenthood, Komen donations up 100 percent

In the wake of this week’s announcement that Susan G. Komen for the Cure will no longer be awarding grants to Planned Parenthood, the breast cancer organization’s donations have gone up 100 percent in the last two days.

On a Thursday conference call Nancy Brinker, the founder and CEO of the Komen Foundation, told reporters that the organization is “singularly focused” on combating breast cancer, and that the politics of the decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood has been distracting from their mission.

Nevertheless, since cutting ties, Brinker announced that Komen’s donations have gone up in the last two days — by 100 percent.

Komen drops plan to cut Planned Parenthood grants
http://news.yahoo.com/komen-drops-plan-cut-planned-parenthood-grants-163643930.html
By DAVID CRARY | Associated Press – 20 mins ago
NEW YORK (AP) — After three days of controversy, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer charity says it is reversing its decision to cut breast-screening grants to Planned Parenthood.

"We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives," a Komen statement said.

As first reported by The Associated Press on Tuesday, Komen had adopted criteria excluding Planned Parenthood from grants because it was under government investigation, notably a probe launched in Congress at the urging of anti-abortion groups.

Komen said Friday it would change the criteria so it wouldn't apply to such investigations.

"We will continue to fund existing grants, including those of Planned Parenthood, and preserve their eligibility to apply for future grants," the statement said.

In 1986, government scientists wrote a letter to the British journal Lancet and acknowledged that abortion is a cause of breast cancer.  They wrote, "Induced abortion before first term pregnancy increases the risk of breast cancer."  (Lancet, 2/22/86, p. 436)

As of 2006, eight medical organizations recognize that abortion raises a woman's risk for breast cancer, independently of the risk of delaying the birth of a first child (a secondary effect that all experts already acknowledge).  An additional medical organization, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued a statement in 2003 calling on doctors to inform patients about a "highly plausible" relationship between abortion and breast cancer.  General counsel for that medical group wrote an article for its journal warning doctors that three women (two Americans, one Australian) successfully sued their abortion providers for neglecting to disclose the risks of breast cancer and emotional harm, although none of the women had developed the disease.

will be among the first to recognize that abortion raises a woman's breast
cancer risk.

Statement Concerning the Link between Induced Abortion and Breast Cancer, R. L. Walley. FRCSC., FRCOG., MPH Executive Director and Honourary Research Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

"MaterCare International an international group of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists was presented with the evidence of the link between abortion and breast cancer at its international conference in Rome in October 2004 by Dr Joel Brind's research group.  The medical explanation and the epidemiological evidence convinced our  group that there is a significant increase in breast cancer risk after induced abortion, especially before the first full term pregnancy.  This evidence has been denied by the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other researchers.  Recently ten studies have been published in an attempt to discredit Brind's conclusion.

"In turn Brind has examined these ten studies and in a peer reviewed paper published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Vol 10, No 4, Winter 2005, <http://www.jpands.org>) he  has shown that they have serious methodological weaknesses and flaws and therefore do not invalidate the conclusion that there is a increased risk of breast cancer.

"Women have a basic right to know of this increased risk of breast cancer and it is unacceptable that the information should be denied to them by the medical and cancer research  establishments. MaterCare International as an organisation of women's health specialists  recognies its responsibilities in this matter and will do all it can to publish this evidence."

Top Pro-Lifers Following Komen Story: Stop Supporting Komen

....“Having grown up in the pro-life movement, I know better than to take ANYTHING the mainstream media says at face value, especially when it comes to abortion,” he said. “So when I saw this morning’s Associated Press headline declaring “Komen drops plan to cut Planned Parenthood grants,” I knew I had to see for myself what Komen was really saying. It turns out the reality is rather far from what that AP headline says. Here’s what I’ve learned, in a nutshell.”

“This morning Susan G. Komen for the Cure issued a statement “apologizing” for the their recent decision not to give any more grants to Planned Parenthood. BUT — and this is a big “but” — they didn’t actually say they will resume giving Planned Parenthood grants. What they DID say is that Planned Parenthood can apply for grants in the future.  But that’s no guarantee they’ll get them. And given the fact that Planned Parenthood doesn’t actually DO mammograms — which is what those grants are for — it seems unlikely they will. We’ll just have to wait and see.”

But the pro-life activists agrees with Ruse.

“So what does this mean for us pro-lifers?” he asked. “First, it means that we cannot support Komen with financial gifts — not before we see they’ve actually stopped giving to Planned Parenthood for good,” he said. “Second , it means that we all need to draw attention to the REAL foe in this story, Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has basically executed a mafia-style shakedown on Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”

“They were willing to TOTALLY DESTROY the nation’s largest breast cancer research and education organization, rather than lose the $600,000 in grants — a pittance to them — they got from Komen.”

Human Life International president Fr. Shenan J. Boquet is on the same page.

“The evolving situation regarding the Susan G. Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood is still very murky. The media have been actively spinning this story since it began, and many ambiguous statements have been released. We hope our supporters will calmly discern the facts of the situation before reacting,” he said. “At this moment it is unclear whether today’s statement issued by Susan G. Komen indicates that they will continue long-term funding of Planned Parenthood, or whether it indicates that they are trying to calm the waters so that they can move forward and make funding decisions in a less turbulent sea.”

“It is important to note, as many have, that both the original and the updated statement by Komen indicated that they will honor their five existing grants to Planned Parenthood. This is not “news,” as these grants were never going to be canceled. While we do not condone these grants, it does not change the story for pro-lifers. It is also true that Planned Parenthood may continue to apply for grants from Komen, regardless of the new policy. It is unclear, however, whether Planned Parenthood will qualify and ultimately receive grants under the new guidelines initiated by Susan G. Komen,” he continued.

Boquet called for stopping support of Komen.

“We encourage pro-lifers to refrain for the time being from giving financial support to Susan G. Komen. At the same time we ask that you not attack, as some have already begun to do, Susan G. Komen in the midst of this process. Such an attack is likely to push Komen back to funding Planned Parenthood,” he said. “We want to encourage our supporters to continue positive encouragement of Susan G. Komen to take a stand for women’s health by not supporting Planned Parenthood with future grants. Write letters and send emails. Ask them to take a truly life-affirming and pro-woman stand by no longer funding the nation’s largest provider of abortions. Our immediate goal is to encourage them to defund Planned Parenthood.”

Media Rush to Defense of Planned Parenthood in Komen Debate, Says Watchdog


When the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation first announced that it would stop providing grants to Planned Parenthood, major news networks devoted much of their attention to supporters of the abortion provider.
According to Media Research Center, a media watchdog, 76 percent of the quotes in ABC, CBS and NBC reports came from Planned Parenthood advocates.

"ABC showed the strongest tilt towards Planned Parenthood, with 10 sound bites or statements in favor of the organization, versus only two supporting Komen, a five-to-one margin," the watchdog reported Friday.

The Media Research Center's report is based on coverage over the course of about 60 hours.

"All three networks turned to women who feared the worst would happen after Komen stopped its grants to Planned Parenthood, which amounted to $680,000 in 2011."

Widespread media coverage was given to last week's announcement by the Komen foundation that it has adopted new grant criteria barring funding to organizations that are under investigation by local, state or federal authorities. Planned Parenthood is currently the focus of a congressional investigation for possible misuse of taxpayer funds.

....

The Media Research Center says the three major news networks "clearly showed that they were willing to rush to the defense of the abortion giant over a few hundred thousand dollars in grant money."

While the watchdog counted 35 quotes attributed to Planned Parenthood advocates, it only counted 11 quotes from Komen representatives or allies.

Ross Douthat, a columnist with The New York Times, wrote last week that the tone of the coverage from nightly news shows to print and online media "alternated between wonder and outrage – wonder that anyone could possibly find Planned Parenthood even remotely controversial and outrage that the Komen foundation had 'politicized' the cause of women's health."

He added, "In many newsrooms and television studios across the country, Planned Parenthood is regarded as the equivalent of, well, the Komen foundation: an apolitical, high-minded and humanitarian institution whose work no rational person – and certainly no self-respecting woman – could possibly question or oppose."

Planned Parenthood immediately rallied supporters and raised the equivalent to the Komen grants within a matter of days. By Friday, it raised $3 million.

Congressman Cliff Stearns, who is leading the investigation into Planned Parenthood, said the amount raised shows that the abortion provider "does not need the Komen funding," which only accounted for less than a tenth of a percent of Planned Parenthood's $1 billion budget.

"I believe that Planned Parenthood could be, and should be, totally self-sufficient, as with so many other non-profit organizations, and spare America's hard-pressed taxpayers the $487 million Planned Parenthood received in public funding," Stearns said Friday, adding that he would continue the investigation.

The Komen foundation was inundated by thousands of comments and complaints on its Facebook page and website as abortion supporters voiced their outrage.

On Friday, Komen founder and CEO Nancy G. Brinker issued an apology to the public and said it would amend grant criteria to disqualify groups that are under investigations that are "criminal and conclusive in nature."

Komen's abortion ties now more clear than ever

...Any other group thinking about donating to Planned Parenthood ought to take note. If you ever decide to stop giving them money, Planned Parenthood may try to destroy you and your group's reputation -- just like they have done to Komen. Planned Parenthood has powerful allies in Congress, in the White House, and in the media. Don't think they won't use that influence against anyone who crosses them. As I have written before, abortion is their sacrament, and Planned Parenthood is their temple. They will not tolerate anyone treading upon their holy ground.

The Komen foundation has really botched the communication of its new policies. As a result, Komen is even more tied to Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby than its ever was before. For an organization that wants to stay out of the culture wars, Komen is worse off now than it was a month ago, when many Americans didn't even know about this controversy. Many pro-lifers also were unaware of Komen's connection to Planned Parenthood. But that is no longer the case. Going forward, Komen will be viewed by Americans as a lackey of Planned Parenthood. Komen looks more like a leftist political group than it ever did. The only way to change this impression is to make a decisive break with the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood.

That's because that is exactly what they are, and have been from the start! Same with all the other scam "foundations" that financially support these various "causes" for "charity". These women have been duped by an organization with a hidden agenda, not realizing they have been herding people around as they choose with their causes all along.

I'm convinced till shown otherwise that these bigger companies don't become big in the world on their own products unless the world loves them and the world picks them to succeed, for a price. Just like that clown at Facebook. He's a thief (so is Bill Gates for that matter), college drop out, and he's a billionaire from invading people's privacy and then inturn selling that data to the highest bidders. THAT is how it works in the world. You have to sell out, totally, and be committed and bow down to Caesar or you don't stand a chance. The world loves evil and rewards it with all the cankered and corrupted treasures the world has to offer.

In the ongoing discussion about Komen funding for Planned Parenthood, it is essential that people understand the central issue, which is Komen funding an organization whose activities actually contribute to the incidence of breast cancer.

One commenter on yesterday’s post, Dave Bunnell, left a very succinct statement with a perfect analogy to capture the essence of this debate. I thought it deserved its own post. Thanks, Dave. You’ve nailed it!

Reblogged this on The Bunnell Blog and commented:
Planned Parenthood’s activities increase breast cancer rate more than anything else Komen Foundation does decreases it. For Komen to give into PP’s campaign of lies and pressure to give them money would be like Mothers Against Drunk Driving letting Budweiser shake them down for funds.

^^^

There was a girl I attended classes with in college - no, I didn't know her well, but we talked maybe a few times, and she seemed like a nice girl.

It's been years since I've seen her, however, she was a straight A student(graduated Magna Cum Laude). It was shortly after I moved back to North Texas when I read a news article blurb on her in one of the Louisiana papers, how she got breast cancer and her struggles with it. Her picture was also on the billboards in the city to advertise "breast cancer awareness".

She also said her faith and prayer has gotten her through this, but there's a CATCH to this - she's CATHOLIC.

No, I'm not saying she's one of the NWO minions working with them, but TPTB are obviously using her, and as you can see, there's connections b/w Susan G. Komen, PP, and the RCC. And this girl happened to be a "top of her class" student. It seems like ever since I was a kid, TPTB would target the top students in schools by showering them with all these "awards" et al at years end.

Anyhow, just some more random observations here.

Former Komen VP Says Planned Parenthood Attack 'Premeditated'

The former vice president at the center of the controversy over Susan G. Komen foundation funding for Planned Parenthood is charging that Planned Parenthood orchestrated a "premeditated" liberal press and social media attack on Komen – describing "guerilla tactics" designed to pressure the foundation into funding the organization.
In an interview with Atlanta reporters, Karen Handel said Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), which has been aware of the decision for months, orchestrated a backlash upon announcement to boost donations and advocate pro-choice convictions that have little to do with fighting breast cancer, which is the mission of the Komen foundation.

"Everybody was taken aback by the fact that this (the PPFA backlash) was premeditated, orchestrated," she said. Planned Parenthood reportedly has a billion-dollar budget and could have easily weathered the $700,000 grant loss, Handel said.

According to Handel: "There were conversations between our organization and Planned Parenthood, letting them know about the change in the criteria and how it would affect Planned Parenthood."

Despite Media Hysterics, Komen Accounts For Only 0.055% Of Planned Parenthood's Billion Dollar Revenue

On learning that Susan G. Komen for the Cure was about to defund Planned Parenthood, both traditional media outlets and leftist media sites exploded with indignant rage. Hysterical bloggers on left-wing websites declared that Komen had joined the GOP “War on Women,” and claimed thousands of women would be harmed or even left to die if Komen stopped funding Planned Parenthood.

Leaving aside the question of the type of “care” Planned Parenthood provides its customers, the group’s own numbers tell a different story – that Planned Parenthood could easily have survived financially without receiving Komen grants.

Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report, for the 2010 fiscal year, shows the “reproductive health group” took in $1.048 billion dollars in revenue. The same report shows that Planned Parenthood took in $18.5 million dollars in “excess of revenue over expenses” during the 2010 fiscal year. Planned Parenthood also reported that its net assets totaled $1.0096 billion at the end of the 2010 fiscal year. In other words, Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar “non-profit” that makes millions in profits.

By contrast, the amount of funding Komen provided to Planned Parenthood was comparatively small. Komen provided $680,000 in grants to Planned Parenthood during the 2011 year. In 2010, they provided $580,000 in grants to Planned Parenthood.

Simple math shows that Komen accounted for less than 5 percent of Planned Parenthood’s “excess of revenue over expenses” in 2009-2010. Komen provided less than a tenth of 1 percent (specifically, 0.055%) of Planned Parenthood’s revenues during the year 2009-2010.

Planned Parenthood isn’t in dire financial straits. On January 24, 2012 – a week before the controversy broke – it was reported by The Real Deal that Planned Parenthood bought a new headquarters in New York City for $34.8 million.

At 2011 funding levels, Susan G. Komen would have needed to have given money to Planned Parenthood for more than 50 years to equal Planned Parenthood’s acquisition of its new headquarters in New York City.

Mark Steyn from National Review Online points out that Komen’s 2010 grant to Planned Parenthood would not even cover Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards’ salary and benefits.

But for all the attention the media gave to Komen’s decision to defund Planned Parenthood, the broadcast networks exhibited a singular lack of curiosity about Planned Parenthood’s own finances. In their coverage of the Komen controversy, none of the big three broadcast networks reported that Planned Parenthood was worth a billion dollars. Not once. Nor, for that matter, did The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Instead, traditional media outlets hyped – and in many cases actively assisted – Planned Parenthood’s efforts to force Komen to reverse its decision.

Left-wing funded media outlets were far too busy providing a forum for Planned Parenthood leaders and allies to raise serious questions about Planned Parenthood’s financial status. The Huffington Post published an article from Cecile Richards, the head of Planned Parenthood, with the title “On Planned Parenthood and Women: What You Can Do.” Alternet published multiple articles from Jodi Jacobson, editor-in-chief of the pro-abortion blog RH Reality Check, including one with the hyperbolic title “The Cancerous Politics and Ideology of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.”

Good journalists would have actually examined Planned Parenthood’s financial situation before claiming that women’s lives would be put in jeopardy. But it seems that traditional journalists have become more interested in “pro-choice” advocacy than actual reporting when it comes to the issue of abortion.

Komen Affiliates Resume Funding Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz


Komen for the Cure has officially buckled to pressure from Planned Parenthood and 17 affiliates of the national breast cancer charity will provide grants for the abortion business this calendar year.

Komen had long been a subject of national controversy in which pro-life advocates initially boycotted Komen and then celebrated earlier this year as it appeared the breast cancer charity had made the decision to revoke funding for the abortion business. After massive public pressure, media attacks and lobbying from Planned Parenthood, Komen indicates the abortion business would be eligible for funding but did to say whether funding would be continued.

Leading pro-life groups had hoped Komen would keep their de-funding decision in place via a change in grant-making criteria making it so organizations like Planned Parenthood that do not do mammograms would no longer be eligible for so-called pass-through grants in which they merely provide referrals to legitimate medical centers and physicians who do.

However, according to a new Washington Post report, the Komen funding spigot for Planned Parenthood has been turned back on:

At least 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates will be funded this year, about the same number that received grants in 2011, according to a tally provided by Komen. The total amount of the grants, which are for breast-cancer screening and other breast-health services, is still being worked out. Most recipients this year also received funds last year.

A half-dozen applications were turned down, mostly because the local Komen affiliates lacked funds, executives said. It is not unusual for there to be more applicants than available funds, although in some locations the controversy has hurt donations.

Additional grants may continue to be awarded because not all of the 122 Komen affiliates base awards on the fiscal year that began April 1. Planned Parenthood has said its Komen grants totaled about $680,000 in 2011 and went to at least 19 of its 79 affiliates.

Figures from August 2011 directly from the Komen for the Cure foundation show 18 affiliates of the breast cancer charity gave a total of more than $569,000 to the Planned Parenthood abortion business in 2010. That was down from the $731,303 Komen officials publicly confirmed in October 2010, when they acknowledged that 20 of the 122 Komen affiliates gave to Planned Parenthood during the 2009 fiscal year.

Komen spokeswoman Leslie Aun appeared apologetic about the decision to revoke funding to Planned Parenthood, in her comments to the Post.

“We know that people have been upset and concerned about recent events,” she said. “We’ve acknowledged our missteps and apologized. People need to know that we have not and never will walk away from women in need. There is no one filling the gap in services the way that Komen is.”

Pat Heard, chief executive of the Planned Parenthood in Southeastern Virginia, which was denied a grant request for $36,350 because of a lack of funds, said she thinks Komen is back to giving Planned Parenthood the time of day.

“I really think, based on conversations we’ve had informally in our follow-up, that they gave us a fair shake,” she said. “We consider them sisters in the effort for women’s health. We have a great relationship with them.”

Komen Announces Plans to Fund 17 Planned Parenthood Affiliates


Earlier this year the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure announced they would no longer contribute to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, after it was revealed they were the subject of a government inquiry. But after caving to intense pressure, the group reversed their decision and now plans to financially support at least 17 PP affiliates in 2012.
Komen, which is based in Dallas, Texas, funded 18 affiliates in 2011 for a total of around $680,000. The grants were intended for breast cancer. However, Planned Parenthood does not provide the screenings and has to refer women to other health care providers.

Officials from Komen are disputing the fact that politics played a role in the foundation's decision to fund the group, saying instead the issue was women's health.

"We know that people have been upset and concerned about recent events," Komen spokeswoman Leslie Aun told The Washington Post. "We acknowledged our missteps and apologized. People need to know that we have not and never will walk away from women in need. There is no one filling the gap in services that way that Komen is."

Officials from Planned Parenthood could not be reached for comment.

Still, the controversy has damaged Komen's "Race for the Cure" fundraising efforts since the uproar began.

In 1986, government scientists wrote a letter to the British journal Lancet and acknowledged that abortion is a cause of breast cancer.  They wrote, "Induced abortion before first term pregnancy increases the risk of breast cancer."  (Lancet, 2/22/86, p. 436)



As of 2006, eight medical organizations recognize that abortion raises a woman's risk for breast cancer, independently of the risk of delaying the birth of a first child (a secondary effect that all experts already acknowledge).  An additional medical organization, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued a statement in 2003 calling on doctors to inform patients about a "highly plausible" relationship between abortion and breast cancer.  General counsel for that medical group wrote an article for its journal warning doctors that three women (two Americans, one Australian) successfully sued their abortion providers for neglecting to disclose the risks of breast cancer and emotional harm, although none of the women had developed the disease.  Click here for more.

Komen Announces New Funding for Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

Another Komen affiliate is sending thousands of dollars to the nation’s biggest abortion business following the national controversy over Komen’s initial decision, and subsequent reversal, to deny Planned Parenthood funding.

The North Jersey affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced Friday that Planned Parenthood is among the recipients of more than $1.2 million in total grants to 18 local organizations. A news report reveals the Komen chapter had given a $20,000 grant to the local Planned Parenthood abortion business last year and chose to renew the grant this year.

Komen North Jersey spokeswoman Kathi Edelson Wolder said Friday the organization had an independent panel review all its grant applications.

“Planned Parenthood was found worthy in terms of its patient education and how they measure up to our priorities in meeting the needs of women and men in our community,” she said.

In a press release Friday, the organization added that this year’s grants are based on a “comprehensive, biannual community profile” conducted in 2011 to make sure the programs address unmet needs.

Obama Admin Concedes Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Do Mammograms


A deliberate effort is underway to rebrand Planned Parenthood as an integral provider of healthcare services, without which untold millions of women would lack basic medical care, or so the story goes. Thus, whenever any effort is made to cut off funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider and stalwart financier of leftist politicians, we’re told there is a “war on women.”

But it’s not a “war on women” when a state simply places a higher priority on funds for true health services that Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform Take, for example, mammograms.

Yes, mammograms. Perhaps there is no greater falsehood than the deceitful, and largely successful, attempt to persuade Americans that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms. It doesn’t.

When the Komen Foundation announced in February that it would no longer provide grants to Planned Parenthood—partly due to the fact that Planned Parenthood does not directly provide mammograms – its ideological and political supporters sprang into action. They decried Komen’s decision to eliminate funding for this imagined provider of mammograms. Planned Parenthood’s Executive Director, Cecile Richards, , made the claim. So did President Obama. And an unsuspecting public was led to believe that such bold claims, by people who should know, must be true.

No matter that phone calls to Planned Parenthood from Live Action demonstrated clearly that this was not the case: Obama had spoken. And the president’s campaign together with Planned Parenthood’s ads continue to beat this drum (almost as if they were coordinated), building off the earlier confusion to frighten voters about the prospect of a Romney administration cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood’s “cancer screenings.”

Anytime someone suggests to you that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms, I encourage you to share with them this letter http://www.adfmedia.org/files/DOC702.pdf from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services demonstrating that it’s untrue. No Planned Parenthood clinic in the country is authorized to perform mammograms. If they are nevertheless performing them, they are violating federal law.

Under the federal Mammogram Quality Standards Act, administered by HHS, “[n]o facility may conduct an examination or procedure…involving mammography” without a certification from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. While a 2004 amendment to this law permits some states to also authorize mammography facilities, these certificates are still issued under the authority of the FDA, and the FDA records all certificates and investigates facilities holding such certifications. In short, there is no uncertainty: if Planned Parenthood could perform mammograms, the FDA (and HHS) would know it.

When President Obama and other Planned Parenthood partisans were making their mammogram claims, Alliance Defending Freedom filed a Freedom of Information Act request to seek any certificates held by any Planned Parenthood clinic or affiliate in the country. The response from President Obama’s own HHS is that no such certificates exist. No Planned Parenthood affiliate in the nation possesses the necessary certification to perform mammograms under federal law. Subsequent e-mails to the department further confirmed this fact.

Federal law provides that anyone operating a mammography device without such a certificate is subject to substantial fines of up to $10,000. So when Cecile Richards, Kathleen Sebelius, or President Obama tell you that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms, they’re telling you that Planned Parenthood is subject to serious fines for violations of the Mammogram Quality Standards Act.

Some Planned Parenthood clinics may provide much less effective manual breast exams. And some encourage women to perform self-exams, which breast cancer organizations like the Komen Foundation actually discourageas counterproductive to women’s health. And, in some cases, Planned Parenthood employees may tell a woman she should go get a mammogram from one of the public facilities that could have provided one to her in the first place. But in order to get a mammogram, a woman needs to go to someplace other than Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood and the politicians it supports must persuade Americans that Planned Parenthood is a full-service women’s health provider—a critical part of our health infrastructure—in order to keep the spigot of taxpayer dollars open. And so continues the deliberate campaign to deceive the public into believing the falsehood that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms for women who otherwise wouldn’t have them.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform mammograms. And President Obama’s own administration agrees. Perhaps with this lie exposed, we can now have a serious discussion about the hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies for Planned Parenthood and its political allies.

Komen and Planned Parenthood: Betrayed From Within, Part 1

For 29 years Nancy Brinker and Susan G. Komen for the Cure enjoyed the adoration of the masses. There is no better story than launching an organization to stop breast cancer at the request of one’s dying sister.

Brinker also enjoyed bipartisan political favor as a wealthy Republican who had received appointments from every GOP president since Ronald Reagan and also as a pro-abortion liberal who sat on the board of her local Planned Parenthood, was friends with CEO Cecile Richards, and had received the Medal of Freedom from President Obama.

So it may be no wonder Brinker’s leadership team was totally unprepared for the Left’s assault when they tried to defund Planned Parenthood. They likely had grown to believe their own hype.

The other problem was so many on Brinker’s leadership team were Planned Parenthood sympathizers whose loyalty rested with it rather than beating breast cancer when put to the test.

How naive were Brinker and Komen? They hired public relations consultants that were Democrat and Planned Parenthood operatives. Here’s a pretty unbelievable list of all the players, according to former Komen exec Karen Handel in her new book, Planned Bullyhood, who I also interviewed for this story:

Komen team

Leslie Aun, Komen’s VP of Communications, who resigned following the debacle: Handel described Aun to me as an “in-your-face liberal.” In her book, Handel wrote of Komen’s very first conference call regarding PP, regarding Richards’ mammogram claim on Joy Behar’s talk show, during which Aun said Komen couldn’t walk away from PP because it would “deal PP a body blow,” an exact quote according to Handel’s notes from the call.

Liz Thompson, Komen’s President, who has now also resigned: Described in Handel’s book as “friends” with Richards. “They frequently crossed paths and had sat on numerous panels together.”

Affiliates: Handel told me in our interview the Komen affiliates most against the PP decision were those in New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and California. Others joined with them, but these were the instigators. Staff at several of these affiliates are previous PP employees, volunteers, and/or board members. Thompson had an initial conference call with affiliates in early December. A detailed Q&A was subsequently distributed, “a big mistake,” according to Handel, because it contained too many details. People within Komen handed it over to to PP, giving PP its ammunition.

During a follow-up affiliates meeting Handel wrote in her book that several executive directors actually said “the right to choose” trumped Komen’s mission, and if Komen suffered, so be it.

Public Relations team

Ogilvy Public Relations/Brendan Daly: Ogilvy was and still may be Komen’s primary PR consultant. Brendan Daly was the account rep. Daly is a longtime Democrat who previously worked for Nancy Pelosi as Communications Director, where he and Richards also worked together.

SKDKnickerbocker/Hilary Rosen: Yes, that Hilary Rosen (pictured below right). Komen hired SKD to manage the Left on a variety of issues, including PP and this environmental study it thought would attract liberal ire. According to Handel, the connections between Rosen, the White House, Democrats, and PP run deep:

Anita Dunn is a managing partner in SKD, formerly the White House Communications Director under Obama.
At the same time SKD was handling PR for Komen, it was doing PR work for PP. According to Handel in our interview, “Rosen told me directly that it was nothing to worry about it because SKD kept a ‘firewall between clients.’”

Rosen was Komen’s go-between with Planned Parenthood, tasked, for instance, with arranging the call between Thompson and Richards.

Rosen was involved in Komen’s communications strategy discussions from the beginning. Rosen actually crafted the initial language that was so focused on investigations against PP – a focus Handel felt was not at all appropriate for external audiences and the press.

Rosen/SKD did consulting work for the DNC and specifically worked to help media train Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Rosen and PP VP of Policy Dawn Laguens know one another well. Their children are in the very same class at a small private school in D.C.

Rosen is a former editor for Huffington Post - the outlet of choice for all Komen leaks.

SKDKnickerbocker/Emily Lenzner, partner: Lenzner was introduced to Komen by Rosen in the very first email to senior staff about the hire of SKD as the “PP expert.”

Lenzner’s husband is Peter Cherukuri, the managing partner of the Washington office for HuffPo, again,the go-to media outfit for all leaks from within Komen. Not in the book: Lenzner’s parents started a charitable trust that contributes to PP.

Komen and Planned Parenthood: Betrayed From Within, Part 2

Previously I described all the players who doomed Susan G. Komen for the Cure from within to lose against Planned Parenthood’s assault when it tried to defund the abortion giant.

Today I will list “coincidences” from Karen Handel’s book, Planned Bullyhood, and also from my interview with her, that give evidence of the Trojan Horse.

December 8, 2011: Komen places a conference call about its decision to defund Planned Parenthood with its public relations representative from SKDKnickerbocker, Hilary Rosen.

December 16, 2011: Komen president Liz Thompson speaks to Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards by phone, but Richards already knows everything.

First week of January 2012: A brief snippet about Komen ending PP grants appears on a radio show out of Ohio. Komen has no idea where it came from. (JLS note: I kind of know where it came from. There was a pro-lifer on the Komen board who tipped Life Decisions International off, and LDI went public before getting a fierce call from the source telling LDI to unplug the news, that the situation was very dicey. Read more here and here.) Handel speaks by phone with Rosen, asking for an update. Rosen says it appears PP is going to just let things go because the organization has other issues. This turns out to either be a lie or an epic fail on Rosen’s part to properly perform her job as liaison between Komen and PP.

January 23, 2012: Komen receives a call that Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, saying she needs to speak with Nancy Brinker “urgently – that day if possible.” She then fails to follow-up and strangely reschedules the “urgent” call for one week later – January 30.

January 30, 2012: Komen gets a bombshell. An Associated Press reporter contacts Komen and says he is writing a story on Komen and Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile, Rosen and other reps from SKD have coincidentally come to the office without Handel’s knowledge. Handel asks Rosen if she thinks PP is going to “DEFCON 4.” “Oh no,” is Rosen’s response, “I don’t think this is any big deal.” Meanwhile, the Wasserman Schultz call happens, and she knows about everything “in great detail… somehow… privy to what had been going on within our organization,” writes Handel. Brinker says the call got “extremely ugly” with Wasserman Schultz telling her Komen would “regret the decision.”

January 31, 2012: The infamous Associated Press story comes out. As I described in this post, Planned Parenthood had tweets and Facebook updates ready to launch. Also, within 48 hours PP lobbyists had gathered signatures of 26 senators on a letter to Komen.

Rosen is absolutely nowhere to be found after January 30. According to Handel she didn’t even attend the murder board session to prep Brinker for her disastrous interview with Andrea Mitchell.

According to Handel in our interview, “This is unconfirmed but I heard from several sources that at some point on February 2, I believe after the Mitchell interview, Rosen called and said she was resigning the account because she just couldn’t take it anymore. That would explain how she felt she could send that congratulatory tweet the following day,” which was positively scandalous in light of her role at Komen…

10/19/12

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Ann Romney will take part in the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K.

The walk begins Saturday morning in Orlando.

Romney, the wife of Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, is a breast cancer survivor.

A Florida spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee told the Orlando Sentinel ( http://thesent.nl/S03oFF) that Ann Romney chose to walk in Orlando because fighting the illness is important to her and Florida is an important swing state for her husband.

The fundraising walk will take place at Orlando's Lake Eola Park.

I was at someone's house today, and was reading some monthly pamphlets from a First Baptist Church in the city...in one of those months, they were reporting TAKING PART in Breast Cancer Awareness and Susan G. Komen activities. NO JOKE! Yeah, I know there's just no truth in Churchianity today(as we're seeing the falling away in 2nd The 2 coming to pass), but an SBC FBC taking part in THESE activities?! No, not saying the SBC was ever good, but still...with the outward appearance of them being socially-conservative...

Yeah, pretty soon every aspect of Churchianity and the secular world will be openly locking arms with one another, as this OWR will soon come to pass.

Also, when they were advertising their LIFE groups, they advertised a QRCode along with it. I mean it wasn't like they were selling something, they were just saying "please join at your own free will". Huh Which was why this QRCode just looked rather awkward.

That has been seen in all the Purpose Driven take-overs of churches in CA too. The embracing of every . worldly tool and "works" minded agendas. There is hardly any edifying. As brothers and sisters we MUST pray for each other on this. The enemy tactic is clearly to starve believers of encouragement, edification, and HEALING by PRAYING for the sick.

Luke 9:2, 6 KJV
And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.

Luke 10:8-9 KJV
And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Colossians 3:2, 12-13, 16 KJV
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

We must also reach out to the deceived followers at these churches. Many of them have been slowly blinded to have their love and compassion for others made powerless and used for evil agendas like SBK(!)  There are many true followers who just don't know how deceptive these "charities" are.

Their LEADERS at CHRISTIAN churches, OTOH are accountable across the board.

Ezekiel 34:3-5 KJV

Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

http://www.naturalnews.com/038099_mammograms_false_positives_overdiagnosis.html

Shock study: Mammograms a medical hoax, over one million American women maimed by unnecessary 'treatment' for cancer they never had

(NaturalNews) Mammography is a cruel medical hoax. As I have described here on Natural News many times, the primary purpose of mammography is not to "save" women from cancer, but to recruit women into false positives that scare them into expensive, toxic treatments like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

The "dirty little secret" of the cancer industry is that the very same oncologists who scare women into falsely believing they have breast cancer are also the ones pocketing huge profits from selling those women chemotherapy drugs. The conflicts of interest and abandonment of ethics across the cancer industry is breathtaking.

Now, a new scientific study has confirmed exactly what I've been warning readers about for years: most women "diagnosed" with breast cancer via mammography never had a cancer problem to begin with!

 
93% of "early detection" has no benefit to the patient
That's the conclusion of a groundbreaking new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).

"We found that the introduction of screening has been associated with about 1.5 million additional women receiving a diagnosis of early stage breast cancer," writes study co-author Dr. Gilbert Welch.

Now, at first, you might think that's a good thing. You might think, "Well, early detection saves lives, just like we've been told by Komen and the cancer non-profits."

But you'd be wrong. As Dr. Welch's team discovered, there was virtually no reduction in late-stage breast cancer from all this "early" diagnosis, meaning that most women who were told they had breast cancer after a mammogram were being lied to.

As he explains:

We found that there were only around 0.1 million fewer women with a diagnosis of late-stage breast cancer. This discrepancy means there was a lot of overdiagnosis: more than a million women who were told they had early stage cancer -- most of whom underwent surgery, chemotherapy or radiation -- for a "cancer" that was never going to make them sick. Although it's impossible to know which women these are, that's some pretty serious harm.

Yep, it is. In fact, if you do the math and calculate 0.1 million fewer women with advanced-stage cancer out of 1.5 million who were diagnosed, 93% of the "early detection" cancer cases studied were false positives, meaning that they would never have gone on to cause advanced-stage cancer anyway
.


 
Chemo, radiation, cancer surgery largely a hoax
According to these scientists, "Breast cancer was overdiagnosed (i.e., tumors were detected on screening that would never have led to clinical symptoms) in 1.3 million U.S. women in the past 30 years."

That's 1.3 million women who were told by their lying oncologists: "If you don't agree to treatment, you'll be dead in six months" (or two years, or whatever fraudulent scare schedule they use).

Under the threat of this fear, most women cave in and agree to start "treatment" -- often on the very same day they are falsely diagnosed. This so-called "treatment" consists of a highly toxic injection of deadly chemicals that the oncologist makes a small fortune selling to the very same patients he falsely diagnosed. Yep, that's right: Cancer clinics and oncology treatment centers make huge profits on the chemotherapy drugs they sell to patients -- the very same patients they scared into treatment through a false positive mammogram.

Despite the near-total failure of mammography from a scientific point of view, the propaganda push for mammography is downright deafening. As Dr. Welch explains in his New York Times article:

...No other medical test has been as aggressively promoted as mammograms -- efforts that have gone beyond persuasion to guilt and even coercion ("I can't be your doctor if you don't get one"). And proponents have used the most misleading screening statistic there is: survival rates. A recent Komen foundation campaign typifies the approach: In short, tell everyone they have cancer, and survival will [statistically] skyrocket.

Komen for the Cure, of course, has been caught blatantly lying about the supposed "benefits" of mammography. Their statistical deception fools most women, sadly, convincing them to undergo toxic chemotherapy for a "breast cancer" they never really had.

 
The quackery of modern oncology
Once women begin the chemotherapy for a cancer they don't even have, they begin to experience what the quack oncologist calls "symptoms of cancer." Their hair falls out. They lose their appetite. Their muscles atrophy. They become weak, mentally confused and chronically fatigued. The cancer doctor then tells the woman, "You must be strong to pull through this while the medicine is working."

Pure quackery! You could do much better invoking voodoo or even just wishing to be cured. Because everything about the cancer experience in modern medicine -- the diagnosis, the "treatment," the medical authority -- is utterly and maliciously fabricated for the purpose of generating cancer industry profits.

 
"Better" technology leads to more false positives
There is no more apparent example of modern-day medical quackery than the cancer industry. Armed with ever-more-precise mammography machines, the rate of false positive diagnoses has shot through the roof.

As Dr. Welch writes in the New York Times:

Six years ago, a long-term follow-up of a randomized trial showed that about one-quarter of cancers detected by screening were overdiagnosed. And this study reflected mammograms as used in the 1980s. Newer digital mammograms detect a lot more abnormalities, and the estimates of overdiagnosis have risen commensurately: now somewhere between a third and half of screen-detected cancers.

Got that? Many cancer diagnoses from mammography are utterly false. But they are a great scare tactic for recruiting women into what can only be called a "cult of cancer" in which they are manipulated into poisoning themselves with chemicals. They are later called "cancer survivors" if the poison doesn't manage to kill them.

These cancer survivors are, of course, victims of a malicious medical cult that I call "the Cult of Komen." In nearly all cases, it wasn't the cancer that nearly killed them... it was the treatment!

 
The cult of Komen
Modern day people sneer and snort at the Jim Jones mass suicide cult of 1978, thinking, "How could those cult members be so stupid to poison themselves to death?"

Look around, folks, because the cancer industry has taken the Jim Jones formula and multiplied it by a factor of a million. The "Cult of Komen" is the modern-day Jim Jones "suicide cult." It's a cult where people "believe" in the promise of salvation through chemical indoctrination, but what's actually delivered to them is rotting death, pain, suffering and humiliation. (Many cancer surgeons operating today literally slice off women's breasts following a false positive cancer diagnosis, maiming her for life.)

One of the earmarks of this cult is the worship of self-mutilation. It's not just the women who are manipulated into having their breasts sliced off by surgeons; it's also the women who are manipulated into being injected with deadly poisons that destroy their kidneys, livers and brains. The No. 1 side effect of chemotherapy, by the way, is cancer.

Like any cult, the cancer industry cult pushes its delusions with emotionally-charged propaganda and powerful symbols (pink ribbons). Millions of women get innocently swept up into the "run for the cure," apparently clueless to the fact that most of that "cure" money goes to pay for more mammograms that result in more false diagnoses which ensnare yet more women into the same victimization racket.

Thus, the very women who participate in raising money for these pink ribbon cult worship-fests are actually paying for the mammogram machines that will recruit more women into the same cult via a quack diagnosis followed by a "campaign of fear and terror" carried out by oncologists against women. What the cancer industry is doing today is, by any measure, a crime against women. It's also a form of cultural mutilation of women, much like we've seen in Aztec, Mayan and various African cultures throughout history.

Is the Cult of Komen a criminal operation? Almost certainly. Is it scientific? Not a chance. There is nothing "scientific" about the modern-day cancer industry other than the scientific manipulation of women's fears and emotions. What Komen and the cancer industry lacks in ethics, science or facts, it more than makes up for in tactics of linguistic influence, arm-twisting and flat-out lying to the public about the over-hyped benefits of mammography.

The cancer industry isn't in the business of curing cancer, after all. But it is in the business of catapulting the propaganda of the delusional cancer cult. As Dr. Welch explains:

Screening proponents have also encouraged the public to believe two things that are patently untrue. First, that every woman who has a cancer diagnosed by mammography has had her life saved (consider those "Mammograms save lives. I'm the proof" T-shirts for breast cancer survivors). The truth is, those survivors are much more likely to have been victims of overdiagnosis.

Thus, all those women marching around with pink T-shirts that say, "Mammograms save lives" are actually declaring themselves to be the unwitting victims of a scientific campaign of targeting women, scaring women into treatment they don't need, then maiming women with toxic chemicals or surgeons' knives.

If those pink T-shirts actually told the truth, they should say, "I survived the cancer industry."

The big question in all this, of course, is: For how long will western civilization continue to live under the spell of the Cult of Komen? How many million women have yet to be sacrificed to the false quackery of mammography and the scam of modern oncology?

And more importantly, why do families allows their own mothers, daughters, aunts and grandmothers to be poisoned and maimed right in front of their own eyes, while they all sit back and submit to the false authority of profit-seeking doctors who practice nothing more than pure quackery?

 
Modern oncology represents the Dark Ages of western medicine
There will come a day, I have repeatedly predicted, when the modern practice of chemotherapy will be relegated to the history books of bad medicine, alongside sniffing mercury vapors and surgically removing body organs to treat mental disorders.

Until that day comes, countless numbers of innocent women will be tricked into being mutilated, chemically poisoned, and blasted with ionizing radiation by cruel doctors who frankly don't care one bit how many women they maim or murder as long as they get reimbursed by Medicare for the procedures.

That's the truth about the cancer industry you won't hear from Komen (nor from any of its pink ribbon cult followers).

 
The conclusion from the study authors
Despite substantial increases in the number of cases of early-stage breast cancer detected, screening mammography has only marginally reduced the rate at which women present with advanced cancer. Although it is not certain which women have been affected, the imbalance suggests that there is substantial overdiagnosis, accounting for nearly a third of all newly diagnosed breast cancers, and that screening is having, at best, only a small effect on the rate of death from breast cancer.

So where in that article do they point to test results of cancer tumors that were removed? Any mass that is removed as cancerous or non-cancerous, is tested to verify the type of cancer, but they don't explain in the article how all those women could be "treated" for cancer they don't have if actual tests are done on the tumors removed.

If tested, all those women they claim didn't have cancer would know they didn't have cancer, and thus not be treated for something they don't have. See my point? This article is more propaganda than facts. I understand opposing a group and such, but it's the bad guys that put out hit pieces and propaganda. If their facts are true, there is no need to sensationalize an article.

Beware Natural News articles. It's a humanist website.

TESTIMONY TIME! Wake up! THE LORD IS STILL THE GREAT PHYSICIAN!
When my baby was just a few months old, we were told by the doctor that it "appeared" cancer had returned and he needed to do radical surgery and radiation . We demanded that we have 7 days to fast and pray-- He told us that we might as well go buy a casket.
7 days later when we returned "whatever" he thought he saw had now suddenly disappeared. His error? A miracle? All that counts is we TRUSTED GOD'S WORD and put our FAITH in His power to heal and His WISDOM! My child would have been blind and facially deformed from the radiation had I just listened to that doctor  and not sought the Lord's help. That's all I can say - besides PRAISE JESUS she is cancer-free YEARS later to date!


Hebrews 13:8 KJV

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Hebrews 4:15-16 KJV

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
