I learned something this week about charities that I didn't know and would be willing to bet that others didn't know either.
Last week the Susan G Komen foundation for finding a cure for breast cancer made a decision that it would no longer be giving a portion of its money to Planned Parenthood -- the largest abortion business in America. I applauded this decision. Many others did not. Under incredible pressure for pro-abortion proponents, the Susan G. Komen foundation caved and reversed its decision. It will continue to give financial support to Planned Parenthood.
Here is what I learned: I assumed that all the money that Komen raised went towards the issue of finding a cure for cancer. I had no idea that they gave money to PP. Why did they ever do that in the first place? I would be willing to bet that most people who support and give to Komen had no idea that they gave some of that money to PP.
Komen has had an incredibly good reputation as a key charity for cancer research and finding a cure. I think that reputation is going to take a big hit.
By the way, Planned Parenthood does other things besides abortions. But, everything else it might do is a shell for what it is really all about -- making money through abortion. PP does over 300,000 abortions a year and only gives about 1,000 adoption references. That makes me sick!
