Project 21’s Washington Praises Komen Break with Planned Parenthood

iStock_000016579755XSmallIn the wake of the news that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity is breaking its financial ties with Planned Parenthood, Project 21 spokeswoman Stacy Washington had this to say:

In what can only be seen as a stunning victory for the pro-life movement, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure charitable organization announced it would no longer be making grants to Planned Parenthood.

Although all grants in process will be funded, new monies will no longer be directed to any organization under investigation by any local, state or federal authorities.

Planned Parenthood is currently being checked out by congressional investigators regarding allegations that the group inappropriately spent taxpayer money on abortion services.

P21StacyWashington2This news comes on the heels of a banner year for the pro-life movement on a nationwide scale.  Planned Parenthood lost access to taxpayer funding in nine different states (Florida, Indiana, Kansas, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin) to the tune of over $61 million.  The murderous butcher Kermit Gosnell was finally brought to justice along with others who aided in his gruesome activities.  In 2011, the U.S. House of Representatives launched the aforementioned investigation into the practices of Planned Parenthood.  And it seems more Americans are pro-life than ever before.

Abortion is rooted in the eugenics movement — initially undertaken under the auspices of preventing the poor, indigent and mentally disabled from reproducing.  Historically, abortion centers target poor inner city neighborhoods — locating their centers at the nexus of any population that has an increasing birth rate.  To quote the mother of the eugenics movement, Margaret Sanger []: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population… if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”  And speaking of large families with more children than they could afford: “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

Sanger helped to found what became the Planned Parenthood of today, and her influence is so revered that there is a yearly award given in her name to those that further the group’s aims.  Hillary Clinton, Jane Fonda and Phil Donahue are proud recipients.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is right to shy away from partnering with any organization with a history such as this — much less being under investigation.  In doing so, they have received praise from past critics who now will support the organization such as Americans United for Life president and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest.  Yoest said:  “As a breast cancer survivor, I applaud the decision made by the Komen Foundation to discontinue their partnership with the billion-dollar, abortion mega-provider, Planned Parenthood.  The work of the Komen Foundation has life saving potential and should not be intertwined with an industry dealing in death.”

With this and other recent achievements, the pro-life movement is having a definitive impact on changing the American landscape for the better.
