Komen ...cannot control where $$ to PP goes

The Free Thinker which bills itself as the voice of atheism since 1881...needs to put on their thinking cap.

They  are annoyed that the bishop of OH has come out publicly against contributing to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure because they give money to Planned Parenthood and are not closing the door to the possible use of funds to support embryonic stem cell research.  This is old news to the pro life movement. We have known about Susan G. for sometime. What I find interesting is that despite their PR spin about the funds are just for breast exams etc. and the old fire wall excuse of no funds find it's way elsewhere with the nation's largest promoter of abortions, this little gaffe....caught my eye. You know what a gaffe is...when someone in the PR dept. slips up and accidentally lets the truth out . 

First it admits it cannot control the flow of funds once the cash arrives at PP and then they repeat the inaccurate claim that PP does mammograms. PP has been called on that one.They  may do a topical exam and hand you a brochure but if  a mammo is indicated they refer you out. They don't have mammography equipment nor do they have trained staff. As I have said previously, the topical exam is one that anyone can be trained to do. I attended  a women's luncheon and the guest speaker trained us.

"Currently, Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the United States, but it also offers offer free breast exams and mammograms, considered key to early detection of breast cancer. While Susan G Komen for the Cure said it intends its contributions to go toward these exams, it cannot control how funds are allocated at Planned Parenthood."
What a shock....
