Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood – What’s the Big Deal?

pink

When I see the pink “breast cancer” ribbon on a product’s label, I look for the words “Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”  And if those words are there, I grab a different brand.

Heartless?  Let me explain my reasons, and I’ll let you decide.

Susan G. Komen for the CureA few days ago, the Susan G. Komen Foundation (best known for breast cancer research) decided to stop giving grants to another organization called Planned Parenthood (best known for conducting abortions).  This caused an emotional uproar that littered the media, Facebook, and blogs for days.

The pro-life community stood by Komen in the decision, sending so many donations that Komen reported giving was up 100%!  Nevertheless, yesterday, Komen offered a confusing apology, which many interpreded as a reverse on their stance.  Actually, it was just an apology; but the problem is that they still haven’t given any indication that funds are permanently cut off from Planned Parenthood.  As far as I can tell, it’s still only temporary.

Let me be clear: As controversial as I know this is, Komen won’t be seeing any of my support until they can definitively say that the relationship is over with Planned Parenthood.  “But,” you might say, “Komen wasn’t paying for abortions–they were paying for breast cancer screenings.”  That’s true, but think about this for a second…

Suppose I started a charity that helped the poor.  You might want to give to my charity because it looks like a noble cause.  But what if you found out that my charity gave grants that supported social programs operated by the Nazi party?  You’d stop giving me money in a heartbeat!  Why?  Because everybody knows that Nazis are evil.  They believe in killing innocent people.  Who cares if they might be helping a few?  Who cares if my money is designated and earmarked for social programs and not for genocide?

Supporting one aspect of their work silently approves of all of it!

See the problem?

Too many Americans don’t see abortion as the atrocity that it is.  And many of those who do claim to have a conscience about it are too cowardly to take a stance against it.  “I don’t personally agree with abortion,” they say, “but I do believe that a woman should have the right to choose what she does with her own body.”

A two-month-old fetusWhere’s the baby’s right to choose what happens to his or her body?  Youdo realize the baby has different DNA and is therefore not the woman’s body, right?

Why is killing a baby perfectly legal when she’s inside a person and disgustingly illegal moments after she is born?  A baby in the trash can outside your house makes you a psychopath; but a baby in the trash can outside an abortion clinic is a “compassionate social program.”
Feeling a little sick to your stomach yet?

I hope so.  Abortion is not a political issue.  It is not a religious issue.  Abortion is a human rights issue.  Innocent people are being killed, and others are silently watching–even approving.

And I wonder if you knew this wonderful little fact: Planned Parenthood was specifically founded with the purpose of eliminating poor minorities so that they wouldn’t outnumber the so-called “superior” (primarily white) affluent Americans.  That’s why Planned Parenthood clinics are found in low-income neighborhoods.  That’s why they spread their propaganda primarily to minorities and the poor.

That sounds like an outrageous claim, but consider the evidence.

Margaret Sanger, Visionary behind Planned Parenthood

Margaret Sanger

Planned Parenthood’s chief founder and first president, Margaret Sanger, stated that the purpose of the organization was “to stop the multiplication of the unfit.”  On page 102 of her work The Pivot of Civilization, Sanger wrote, “. . .we prefer the policy of immediate sterilizarion, of making sure that parenthood is ‘absolutely prohibited’ to the feeble-minded.” Seriously?!  In 1915, Sanger published some of her views in a pamphlet, saying:

It is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them. Herein lies the key of civilization.

Planned Parenthood’s early years even had some interesting connections with Nazi eugenics, making my analogy from earlier not-too-far from the truth. (A concise and well-footnoted history of Planned Parenthood and their underlying mission can be read at The History of Planned Parenthood, by Mike Perry.)

Planned Parenthood“But that was back then,” you say. “Planned Parenthood doesn’t agree with Margaret Sanger’s racist, elitist, and bigoted views anymore, right?”  Well, consider what Planned Parenthood’s current web site states: “Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is one of the movement’s great heroes. Sanger’s early efforts remain the hallmark of Planned Parenthood’s mission…” (Source: Planned Parenthood: History and Successes).

If you disapprove of a person’s views, then you disassociate yourself from their name.  I don’t see any reputable organizations offering an “Adolf Hitler Award.”  But since 1966, Planned Parenthood’s “highest honor” is the Margaret Sanger Award.  The most recent recipient listed on their web site was U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who said upon receiving the award, “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision… When I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.”

I wonder why Sanger is so lauded as a wonderful, awe-inspiring person?  If you read her writings, you will be disgusted like I am.  She didn’t hide her perspectives, but her public-relations people and today’s marketing teams have.  Why?  Because if people knew the true Margaret Sanger–the one who Planned Parenthood still honors and praises–the funding from everyone with a conscience would stop.

Why bring this topic up on a web site about supernatural Christianity?  Because I have been meeting more and more Spirit-filled Christians who are siding with liberal politics–politicians who fight for Planned Parenthood and a woman’s so-called “right” to kill her baby.  These Christians claim that “Liberals are more like Jesus because they care about the poor.”  Funny thing about that: Syracuse University’s Arthur C. Brooks published an extensive study proving that political conservatives give substantially more to charities than political liberals (you can get his book, Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism, or read a few bulleted points in an article from 2008).

Yes, Jesus instructed us to give to and care for the poor.  He didn’t, however, tell us to petition Rome to take more money from rich people and give that to the poor.  And as far as abortion is concerned, Jesus might not have even made it to the stable if Planned Parenthood had been able to counsel His poor, unwed, teen mother.

As Spirit-filled Christians, our stance should be for life.  Again, being pro-life is not a political issue; but there are politicians who have made it such.  If a politician believes in degrading human life and squashing human rights, then we have a responsibility to allow that issue to trump our thoughts on fiscal policies or any other issue.  We have to stand up to this evil.

Slavery is not a political issue–it too is a human rights issue.  But if the “perfect politician” finally arrived–a man or woman with whom you agree 100%–yet he or she also believed all illegal immigrants should be turned into slaves, would you still give them your vote?  Of course not!  Even if slavery would solve all our economic problems, it would be wrong, and such a person shouldn’t be voted for.  (For more about this perspective, see my 2010 article, “Abortion and One-Issue Voting – Right or Wrong?“)

Human rights transcend politics.  I don’t care how much you might agree with Democrats or their liberal ideologies–stop approving of abortion.  Stop electing officials who support the murder of innocent life.  Stop filling congress with people who want to use our tax dollars to support abortion mills like Planned Parenthood.  It’s disgusting, and I’m appalled that any Christian could do so with a clean conscience.

Do you understand the fuss about the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s decisions now?  Do you understand a little better why I have avoided that little pink ribbon like the plague?

Am I heartless?  Hardly.  As a matter of fact, I believe I have a better hope to offer women with breast cancer.  It’s called the healing power of Jesus Christ.  I’ve personally seen more women miraculously healed of breast cancer by Jesus’ power than I have seen women completely healed of breast cancer by the Komen Foundation…and His treatment is completely free!

Jesus didn’t come to earth to build clinics.  He came healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing lepers, and casting out demons.  Was Heheartless?

As the Church, our role in this earth is the same.  Jesus said, “As the Father sent Me, I send you.”  If we will truly pursue the ministry of healing and contend for the possibility of 100% success (which Jesus had in His earthly ministry), then we won’t have to worry at all about how much money is being donated to Susan G. Komen (or any other organization for that matter).  If the Church will truly love the poor, then we don’t need social programs to do it.  If the Church will walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, then we will have the market cornered on the true Cure for cancer.

I truly hope that the Susan G. Komen Foundation puts a definite, clear end to the unnecessary funding of such an insidious organization once and for all.  But more than that, I hope you are stirred to seek a greater measure of Christ’s healing ministry in the Church.  Jesus is the answer, and you are His hands and feet.  Let’s minister healing with boldness like never before.

God bless,
–Art–

    This was very well-written. You asked this simple question, “Why is killing a baby perfectly legal when she’s inside a person and disgustingly illegal moments after she is born?” I find it hypocritical that if a mother is murdered carrying a child, it’s double homicide. They treat the unborn baby as a human then but not if the mother decides to abort it.

    Technically, Margaret Sanger was right about stopping to bring children into the world whose parents cannot provide for them. Several reports have shown, including the book and documentary “Freakonomics,” that approximately 20 years after the Roe Vs. Wade ruling, crime significantly dropped in low income, predominantly black areas. This was because many young, single, unfit mothers were having abortions. Sanger was right in theory but wrong in practice.

    If we want the vicious cycle to end then we need to educate and provide people with the hope, tools, and opportunity to improve themselves, both spiritually and socioeconomically. Otherwise, we will continue to see exactly what we have now.

    Abortion is genocide of the unborn. America’s own personal holocaust that has unfortunately been exported around the world. Abortion is the killing of those who have no voice. Planned Parenthood is 39 years old and has aborted nearly 50 million babies. I agree with the above but I would add that in my opinion Planned Parenthood is an evil organization. Furthermore I do not believe there is anything as pro-choice. You are either for or against. It is a black and white issue. If a person claims to be a Christian and says they are pro-choice, they are a liar. They are not Christian. The sixth commandment is not a suggestion. “Thou Shall Not Kill”. I shudder to think there may be people who take pleasure in ending a baby’s life.

    i thank abortion is wrong and it is murder

    Personally I would like to speak to this author and present a full article with history for all of you on this matter. There is much more to this issue. As a mother of five who brought five children into this world, I have far more concern with the other issues of reproduction then just abortions; abortions will end when you all open your eyes. Care about the women baring children and you won’t have abortions. Seperate your spiritual views from your politics. Stop supporting the state of Israel when the entire world is in crisis. And try looking at your own American people suffering.

    The Goodman’s, Susan and Nancy were raised in Peoria, Ill not far from Hilary Clinton in Park Ridge, baby boomers, both from wealthy Jewish families. Nancy went to Neiman Marcus University and worked for one of the biggest pharmaceutical industries marrying into another Jewish family. When her sister was sick she met Norman Brinker and got the money from him to merge a no profit foundation with her pharmaceutical marketing plans. Based on the memory of his late wife Mo Little a pro tennis player, soon, her divorce and marriage to Norman caused him to surrender this foundation to her and the use of her sisters touching story with cancer as the pink mantra. Buzzwords are a part of all political agenda’s and words like cancer are as taboo and untouchable, as tolerance and diversity and racism.

    Nancy, all along had a high paying position in the pharmaceutical industry, she is also paid as chief of protocols for world cancer, as well her own stock portfolio in oncology, equipment, surgery and drugs. Not only did the foundation financially thrive so did she. It pays to keep people sick and reap the profits from pretending you actually care. Abortions through Planned Parenthood are not the real focus of Komen at all they is merely a part of the ongoing of genocide. Abortions have been blood libel since before the Fallen Angels. Consider just who the ongoing bloodline of Satan and the Nephilim are today.

    Nancy Goodman-Brinker [ Komen ] was given the Margaret Sanger Award who was a eugenic society member and was also given a reward by Al Hitler. Karl Marx daughter who was hidden in history lessons also pushed for this agenda long before this time with the feminist movement and her husband began the first Communist movement in France. The Marx family continued in the US to harm the people to this day and I am sure if you link people together you will see the bigger picture of evil. Margaret’s best friend and mentor was a Jew.

    You want abortion to stop, then wake up and consider all of what is going on around you. God does not honor ignorance and blindness. You are ending all inheritance. As Clinton said in a speech as Bush and he helped open the flood gates to the immigrants in the US, ” I can’t wait to look out over the crowd one day and see all brown faces”. What he meant was the washing away of the true seed of Abraham and Sarah, and this is what the Ashkenazi/Khazars want. The lowest birth rate today is of the white race of people.

    Conservatives and wealthy liberals, arrogance, and material greed will soon cause you to no longer exist. As Hilary also said, ” The great Culling is about to occur”. We are all lambs to slaughter because we do not seek ye knowledge. If any of you wished to understand more I would be more then happy to discuss this all with you. As for liberals, these same people who claim they are liberals, gays, other races supporting them they have merely been used as diversion, the elitist do not care about them at all and they will the first to be targeted for this Agenda 21 genocide. All life is precious but to reproduce you need your women and if you kill off all your women as you are doing now you won’t have a people to consider or babies to protect. Think about it and research for the truth. Pro life groups have long supported Komen and praised them sending their own Christian women to them for reproduction care not even “getting it” through the DHS as nothing more then another form of genocide. Your women as in girleffect.org are being targeted for death. Wake up and stop them completely and stop giving Israel money, give it to the Americans to rebuild [ our country and our bloodlines of Sarah and Abraham.
