Tie Between Susan G Komen, Abortion and Breast Cancer

    How could a valued breast cancer opponent morph into a charity not to get donations from those wishing to improve the outcome of breast cancer? Somehow, Susan G. Komen, turned into something feared deeply in pro-life circles—namely, death. First, Komen is a huge contributor to Planned Parenthood (PP). In the last 5 years they have given over $3 million to PP.

    FDA Panel Rejects Avastin For Breast Cancer

    A Food and Drug Administration panel today voted 6-0 to halt the use of cancer drug Avastin for the treatment of breast cancer, saying studies have failed to show Avastin is effective for that purpose.  The recommendation came after two days of testimony from patients, doctors, and advocacy groups.

    Let the Healthcare Rationing Begin

    For decades women have been badgered by healthcare professionals, politicians, government officials and celebrities to have regular mammograms after the age of 40. Early breast cancer detection is the key to survival, they’ve preached. We’ve had to undergo embarrassing examinations, and be taught how to self-examine. An awareness campaign was launched, complete with Mary-Kay-Pink ribbons on everything from M&M’s to t-shirts (I reluctantly admit to | Read More »
