Friends, please read the articles at the links below. Janet Morana and I share several things in common. She, along with Georgette Forney, is a co-founder of Silent No More Awareness. I am a spokeswoman for SNMA. Janet was a school teacher for many years before she began her ministry for life with Priests for Life. Yours truly was a college professor for 19 years. Janet’s blog, teachable moment is truly just that. Then, there are the gag orders from the Army and the Department of Health and Human Services. Now, I join Janet in urging you to take positive action regarding Komen. Friends, we need to teach, preach, pray and act now! Please take a moment to read and then act. Follow the steps outlined in the second link! God bless you!
Today the Susan G. Komen Foundation made an announcement that appears as if they have reversed themselves on funding of Planned Parenthood.
It is unclear at this time if they have in fact reversed themselves.
What we know has happened this week was nothing short of a Mafia shakedown by Planned Parenthood against the Susan G. Komen Foundation. It was little more than a hostage-taking by an abortion bully.
Planned Parenthood told the Komen Foundation, “Either give us money or we will destroy you.” They were aided and abetted in this hostage-taking by the mainstream media.
Susan G. Komen withheld Planned Parenthood funding for two laudatory reasons: they do not fund groups under criminal investigation and they do not support groups that do not actually help women in need of breast health care.
Planned Parenthood is under legislative and criminal investigations all over this country. What’s more, Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms even though they claim they do.
What Planned Parenthood did this week was unleash their multi-million dollar fury and political might against a group wholly unprepared for such a political attack. The Susan G. Komen Foundation is a non-profit charity dedicated to curing breast cancer. Planned Parenthood is a political machine dedicated to attacking anyone and anything that stands in its way.
Planned Parenthood tried this week to utterly destroy the Susan G. Komen Foundaton and they were well on their way to doing just that. They made it abundantly clear they care more for abortion than for protecting women’s lives.
This is not the first time. When the country was debating national health care, Planned Parenthood was quite willing to kill the bill rather than allow even minor abortion restrictions in it. Later, Planned Parenthood pushed President Obama toward a government shutdown rather than allow Planned Parenthood funding restrictions in the federal budget.
Planned Parenthood has shown they care more about abortion and about protecting their funding streams than any other thing, including women’s lives.
At this point, pro-lifers should cease their support of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We should wait and see what happens. We know there are five more Komen grants to Planned Parenthood in the pipeline. If any more come up, we will know we have lost and Planned Parenthood has won and we will take appropriate actions at that time.
Pro-lifers should not regret the work we have done over the past days on this issue. We should only regret we could not have done more to make Komen strong and able to fight off the thuggish abortion giant, Planned Parenthood.
We should pray for Nancy Brinker and her colleagues at the Susan G. Komen Foundation, that they have the strength to stop funding Planned Parenthood. We should turn all of our fire on Planned Parenthood and show them for the criminal enterprise they really are.
Post-Abortive Women, Cancer Victims Cheer Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation’s Decision to Defund Planned ParenthoodWednesday, February 1st, 2012

Staten Island, NY – Leaders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign (SNMAC) today hailed the Susan G. Koman for the Cure Foundation’s announcement that it will no longer give money to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, or any other organization under Congressional investigation.
“This is more than welcome news, especially to the post-abortive women of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign who are breast cancer survivors,” said Janet Morana, co-founder of SNMAC. “Of the 70 epidemiological studies that have been conducted worldwide since 1957, 80% report a risk increase of breast cancer for women who have had abortions. The Susan G. Komen Foundation’s donations to Planned Parenthood were as nonsensical as would be the American Lung Association donating to a tobacco manufacturer.”
“No one is more anxious to find a cure for breast cancer than the women of Silent No More,” added Georgette Forney, also a co-founder of SNMAC. “This is a plague that affects us personally and deeply. We recently lost a dear co-worker to breast cancer; the disease is all too familiar to our membership. On behalf of the breast cancer victims and survivors of Silent No More, I can’t thank the Susan G. Komen Foundation enough for this decision.”
The Silent No More Awareness Campaign and other pro-life women’s groups have worked for years to disseminate the facts on the abortion/breast cancer link. Eve Sanchez Silver, a former Susan G. Komen medical research analyst and Hispanic outreach director, deserves special thanks for her tireless efforts to educate women, especially Latinas, on the breast cancer risk caused by abortion. Ms. Sanchez Silver, a two-time breast cancer survivor who left the Komen Foundation because of its donations to Planned Parenthood, appeared on Priests for Life’s Defending Life television program as part of those efforts.
Alveda King, full-time Priests for Life associate and a spokeswoman for SNMAC, added today, “There are abortion clinics across the United States located on or near boulevards named after my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. They have been dealing death to babies and, according to objective scientific research, breast cancer to women for decades. The Susan G. Komen Foundation’s new policy will save lives by making abortion, and therefore breast cancer, less prevalent in all communities.”
Since the launching of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 4,845 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 865 gatherings in 48 states and ten countries where more than 110,830 attendees have heard the truth about abortion’s negative aftereffects. More than 10,100 people representing 57 countries are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign’s goals. The Campaign has over 1,300 testimonies posted here, with over 120 that are shared via video!
The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org
