According to lifeissues.org, the Susan Komen Foundation, by its own admission on its very own website, has been awarding financial grants to Planned Parenthood clinics all across the country. Here are some excerpts from the lifeissues.org fact sheet on Susan Komen grants to Planned Parenthood (compiled August 2005):
In the United States, there are about 115 Susan G. Komen affiliates. Of these, at least 112 sponsor a Race for the Cure to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. To date, at least 43 of these Affiliates have given grants to Planned Parenthood Centers or other abortion clinics totaling more than 100 grants given across the nation to Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics since 1998.
Of the 50 states, at least 22 states have Komen affiliates that grant money to Planned Parenthood or other abortion clinics.
Since the Susan G. Komen Foundation began giving grants to Planned Parenthood, purportedly for breast health services, the number of women receiving breast health services from Planned Parenthood has decreased. According to Planned Parenthood’s 2003-04 Annual Report, abortions increased by 14,000 in 2002-03, while breast exams decreased by more than 141,000
This connection might explain the meteoric rise of the Komen Foundation over the last few years.

I have heard this sad news before.
Thankfully, it made me start questioning the organizations I gave money to (thank goodness the Komen foundation wasn't one of them!)
