Good news

A couple of weeks ago I found out that Susan G Komen had given money to Planned Parenthood as a grant for mammograms. Now I am all for low or free screenings for women that are in need of this. But in my eyes it was like saying that a serial killer should be given money so they could do something good for the community. Anyway, a friend sent me this press release. I did a quick search for the Lincoln affiliate. If you stand with me on this, please send them a quick email thanking them for the decision. I believe they would also be the ones to contact if you know of someone in need of a low cost or free screening. Every baby is a gift from God and is valuable. In a culture that just screams for equal rights for all, as a nation, we are not giving those rights to the most vulnerable.

Julie Schmit-Albin on KFAB's Good Morning Show re: Susan G. Komen Decision
LINCOLN --Nebraska Right to Life is joining National Right to Life in supporting the Susan B. Komen Foundation's decision to stop funding grants to Planned Parenthood affiliates.

"The Susan B. Komen Foundation's grants to Planned Parenthood affiliates amounted to $680,000.00 in 2011 and $580,000.00 in 2010." said Julie Schmit-Albin, NRL Executive Director. "That's a drop in the bucket for a billion dollar entity like Planned Parenthood. This isn't so much about losing money for Planned Parenthood as it is about being rejected by the nation's most recognized breast cancer charity. It impedes Planned Parenthood's goal to mainstream itself into American society and tamp down the stigma of being the largest abortion provider in the country."

"As a breast cancer survivor and pro-life activist, I am but one of thousands of other pro-lifers who will now be able to support Susan G. Komen's Race for the Cure and other activities." said Schmit-Albin.  "What Komen loses in support from this decision will be made up by an influx of Americans who will gladly acknowledge their rejection of Planned Parenthood with their donations and support."
