Susan G. Komen to quit donating to Planned Parenthood
#11
Quote:Aun, in a telephone interview, said Komen was not accusing Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing.

"We want to maintain a positive relationship with them," she said. "We're not making any judgment."

And thus no Catholic should seek to have a 'positive relationship' with the exploiter Komen.  I would not be surprised if this is some kind of intercine battle and Komen resumes fueling operations of Baal and Moloch's human pomps.

Greetings brethren,

Just shot off an email thanking them. Doesn't have to be long, just adding to the amount of emails in support.

Blessings,

I sent them one, as well. Anytime a pro-death company breaks with its hardened stance, we should be grateful I guess, even if they do not immediately go far enough.

Yes, and they're still in the Embryonic Stem Cell malaise.

But don't let perfect be the enemy of the good. I've sent them an email to say I was happy with this decision.  news@komen.org

The anti-life crowd has been louder than us on this.

You want to know what I think? Look for the liberals in the Chanceries to start pushing for a Susan G. Komen collection at a parish near you. They might even try to design pink stoles for the priests on those days.

At best, this is a purely business decision. And make no mistake, these mega-charities are businesses. Tax exempt to boot.

There is way to much money in cancer to look for a cure. What the oncologists do? Those people who make at least a million dollars per patient while they cut, poison, and burn their customers.

And breast cancer in particular and it's desire to fund it, is feminist agit-prop and its finest. There is not one of them that does what is good.

And I hold these views even though my dear mother died of the disease at the age of 63. So don't accuse me of having little or no mercy for the victims.

At her funeral, many people asked why Mom wanted donations made to St. Jude rather than breast cancer charities. I told them that mom was more concerned with little children who would get cancer and she knew that breast cancer research was heavily, if not overfunded. Plus she did not feel the need to glory in her disease.

That's all.

I think they will all take off their human-masks and show that they are really space aliens here to conquer earth.

See? I can make up stuff too.

1) My scenario has a chance of actually happening, as there are potentially millions of dollars to extract from the Church. And it may be a good substitute for the CCHD which they can't seem to ressurect.

2) You do make up a lot of stuff. But you are not very imaginative. My advice is to stay away from the Sci-Fi channel and avoid Deep Space Nine.

It would make a lot of sense if you think about it.

Or am I just being cynical?

Apparently not.

Quote:Austin Ruse, the president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (CFAM) tells LifeNews that the AP report is wrong and that the Komen funding is not a temporarily (sic) decision based solely on the fact that Planned Parenthood is under investigation at the federal and state level.

He told LifeNews.com that the official Komen statement announcing the decision does not mention that it is conditioned based on the results of the Congressional investigation and that it not a temporary change based on a change in how grants are allocated — pointing to the sentence in the Komen statement saying, “We also implemented more stringent eligibility and performance criteria to support these strategies.

February 3, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a new statement on the Susan G Komen Foundation website, the organization says it wants “to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women’s lives.” The statement is from Susan G. Komen Board of Directors and Founder and CEO Nancy G. Brinker.

It purports the foundation will amend its funding criteria to indicate “disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political.” Congressman Cliff Stearns of Florida launched an investigation of Planned Parenthood to determine whether it misuses federal funds to promote abortion.


It is not yet clear how this will affect the foundation’s new commitment to directly fund organizations that provide mammograms. This would exclude Planned Parenthood, which does not perform the procedure.

The statement adds it will meet with local affiliates this afternoon. Many are reportedly in uproar over the decision to cut ties with Planned Parenthood.

The statement says, “We do not want our mission marred or affected by politics – anyone’s politics.” It concludes, “we sincerely hope that these changes will be welcomed by those who have expressed their concern.”

Pro-life leaders say that the exact import of the statement is not yet clear.

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.

The events of this week have been deeply unsettling for our supporters, partners and friends and all of us at Susan G. Komen.  We have been distressed at the presumption that the changes made to our funding criteria were done for political reasons or to specifically penalize Planned Parenthood.  They were not.

Our original desire was to fulfill our fiduciary duty to our donors by not funding grant applications made by organizations under investigation.  We will amend the criteria to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political. That is what is right and fair.

Our only goal for our granting process is to support women and families in the fight against breast cancer.  Amending our criteria will ensure that politics has no place in our grant process.  We will continue to fund existing grants, including those of Planned Parenthood, and preserve their eligibility to apply for future grants, while maintaining the ability of our affiliates to make funding decisions that meet the needs of their communities.

It is our hope and we believe it is time for everyone involved to pause, slow down and reflect on how grants can most effectively and directly be administered without controversies that hurt the cause of women.  We urge everyone who has participated in this conversation across the country over the last few days to help us move past this issue.  We do not want our mission marred or affected by politics – anyone’s politics.

Starting this afternoon, we will have calls with our network and key supporters to refocus our attention on our mission and get back to doing our work.  We ask for the public’s understanding and patience as we gather our Komen affiliates from around the country to determine how to move forward in the best interests of the women and people we serve.

We extend our deepest thanks for the outpouring of support we have received from so many in the past few days and we sincerely hope that these changes will be welcomed by those who have expressed their concern.
