The Susan G Komen – Planned Parenthood Scandal
Susan G. Komen recently decided to pull their funding for Planned parenthood based on two factors. First, Planned Parenthood was under investigation by Congress and a few states for mis-appropriation of funds, and secondly that the focus of Planned Parenthood did not necessarily rank it ahead of other organizations competing for the funds.
Ultimately, Komen relinquished its decision under pressure from Planned Parenthood and the media.
Now I have one big question that has not received coverage. Is Abortion linked to breast cancer despite the assurances that the National Cancer Institute provides that there is no link. But if the NCI is wrong and there is a link, would this not change the entire debate?
I am attaching a link to a paper which summarizes all the studies performed in the arena and casts a shadow of doubt upon the prevailing opinion of the National Cancer Institute.
Obviously, even if a link is realized, there are other contributing factors. Abortion could not possibly account for all cases. It is interesting to note, however, that many of the forms of birth control act as abortifacients. An abortifacient induces an abortion at the earliest of stages. What is important to note is that it often works post-conception and so the biological processes that could be responsible for an increased cancer risk may also apply to the use of chemical contraception. Would these incidents not represent unreported occurrences which may be incalculable?
I include this post as food for thought. Isn’t it interesting that we often hear about “A Race For The Cure” but we never hear about a “Race For The Cause”. If we are unable to determine causality, how will we ever find a cure?
