MCFL: Komen, (much) more to the story

by: MCFL Press Release

Fri Feb 03, 2012 at 17:05:23 PM EST

Austin Ruse, President of Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute has been following the situation closely. He tells Life News that today's statement by Komen does not change the policy they announced earlier this week.

Carol Tobias, President of National Right to Life Committee, calls on Komen not to fund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers in the future. Her press release seems to recognize the realities presented by Ruse and lays out a fruitful strategy for us to use.

Thanks to all the people who are digging clarity out of the press coverage and have sent along the information! Anne

NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE RESPONDS TO
KOMEN DECISION REGARDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD

WASHINGTON - Succumbing to pressure from the mainstream media and Planned Parenthood, Susan G. Komen for the Cure today announced Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates will remain eligible for grant funding. Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion provider, performing approximately 27% of all abortions annually in the United States.

The following statement may be attributed to National Right to Life President Carol Tobias:

Shortly after news broke earlier this week that Komen was withdrawing future grant funding to Planned Parenthood and its affiliates, the abortion giant and its allies began a shrill online campaign to bring Komen to its knees by bullying the organization into submission.

Any decision to provide future grants approved for Planned Parenthood, which boasts a $1.1 billion budget, would be extremely and sadly misguided. Any grants to Planned Parenthood would be detrimental to women and their unborn children. Even in their own press statements, Planned Parenthood states that they refer for mammograms, an indication they don't perform them.

Planned Parenthood is not in the business of fighting breast cancer, they're in the business of performing abortions to the tune of more than 300,000 a year, which accounts for at least one-third of Planned Parenthood's nongovernmental clinic income. In fact, Planned Parenthood has announced that all of their affiliates will be required to perform abortions.

National Right to Life strongly urges Susan G. Komen for the Cure and all cancer research organizations to approve no future funding to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics.  Right-to-life supporters do not want their donations for fighting cancer to go to organizations that perform abortions.

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.

MCFL: Something to see and something to do

by: MCFL Press Release

Thu Feb 02, 2012 at 11:56:12 AM EST



Thanks to Helen Cross, here is the video of the wonderful presentation that Wayne Cockfield gave at the Assembly. It is a winner - as is Wayne.

We were so fortunate to have Representative Angelo Scacia act as emcee, beautiful, professional music by Helen Cross and Pat and Eric Anthony. The Treblemakers from the Montrose School performed and everyone was delighted. Bakhita Thordarson, a senior at Montrose , shared her experiences at the March for Life. Jean Armano accepted the Outstanding Chapter Award for the Greater Lawrence Chapter and Kathy Celuci accepted the Flatley Trophy for Heartbeat of Burlington, which again brought the most walkers to the Walk to Aid Mothers and Children.

During the week Wayne was here,, we got an email from Rhode Island Right to Life describing how "Occupiers" had stormed their Assembly at the RI state House, abused the right to lifers and kept the speakers from speaking. Wayne said that had happened on a smaller scale at home in South Carolina. When our beautiful Assembly finished, we breathed a sigh of relief.

How many times has someone asked you about Susan B Komen funding Planned Parenthood. Now the answer is different -they have stopped funding.  Most gratifying development

http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

There is a skunk in the yard. Pro-abs have mounted an assault on Komen to try to get them to change back. Planned Parenthood is whining that they will have find other funding or woman will suffer, a U S Congresswoman from California has announced withdrawal of support, etc. All the national pro-life leaders are urging us to counter this barrage. Please write to news@komen.org to say thank for defunding Planned Parenthood.

Writing to thank Susan B Komen - another thing you thought you never would do, but please do. Anne

Lifenews Breaking: Komen to Stop Grants to Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

by: massprolife

Tue Jan 31, 2012 at 17:14:36 PM EST

After years of protests and criticism from pro-life advocates, the biggest breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has announced it is halting further grants and donations to the Planned Parenthood.

Figures from August 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.
