Race For The Cure Grants Funds To Planned Parenthood

Just thought I should give you all a reminder about the upcoming Race for The Cure. Some of your fund raising dollars could be going to Planned Parenthood. Apparently the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston has found this out too since they have broken ties to Saturdays Race for the Cure.

I noted this previously in a posting from February 23, 2005.

RACE FOR THE CURE - Breast Cancer Foe Gives Big $$ to Top Abortion Provider

CNS News

So Race for the Cure grants almost half a million each year to Planned Parenthood. Hmmm. And they don't see a problem with that, pretty ironic considering that there are supposedly studies which link abortion to breast cancer.

A foundation that uses events such as the "Race for the Cure" to raise money to fight breast cancer is jeopardizing women's health by using some of those funds to support local chapters of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, according to a former advisor to the foundation.

<.....> examination of Planned Parenthood's recent annual reports shows that while the organization's overall revenue has increased five years in a row and the number of abortion procedures performed at Planned Parenthood clinics has soared during the same period, the number of breast exams conducted at Planned Parenthood facilities in 2003 (the most recent year available) fell by 13.3 percent.
