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

The Infiltration of Many Good Organizations

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Recently, the Salvation Army’s official position on abortion which was approved on November 2010 was brought to my attention.

After defining what constitutes an induced or elective abortion the Salvation Army then proceeds to state how much they respect life from “the moment of fertilisation as the start of human life.” They go on to say that “life is a gift from God,” how the unborn must be protected, and how babies must not aborted just because of “genetic abnormalities” as long as the unborn child “is likely to live longer than a brief period after birth.”

Next, they give the conditions under which procuring an abortion is acceptable. Here is what they say:

The Salvation Army recognizes tragic and perplexing circumstances that require difficult decisions regarding a pregnancy. Decisions should be made only after prayerful and thoughtful consideration, acknowledging the tremendous pressures that occur during an unexpected pregnancy. There is a responsibility on all involved to give the parents of the unborn child, particularly the woman, appropriate pastoral, medical and other counsel. The Salvation Army believes that termination can occur only when

• Carrying the pregnancy further seriously threatens the life of the mother; or
• Reliable diagnostic procedures have identified a foetal abnormality considered incompatible with survival for more than a very brief post natal period.

In addition, rape and incest are brutal acts of dominance violating women physically and emotionally. This situation represents a special case for the consideration of termination as the violation may be compounded by the continuation of the pregnancy.

What’s troubling about their position is that on the one hand they say that all life is sacred and on the other hand, not certain lives. On the one hand, God is the giver and taker of life, but on the other hand, a woman can terminate the lives of her baby in certain situations. You can’t have it both ways. Either life is sacred and God ordained or it’s not.

Another issue is the second bullet point. Who is to determine what “a very brief post natal period” is? A perfect example is Rick Santorum. His daughter Isabella was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 late into the pregnancy. Since a large percentage of these children are still born and out of the ones that survive, 90% of them die within the first year, many in the first few weeks, by the Salvation Army’s stance on abortion, she would have been a prime candidate for abortion. The problem with their stance is that we don’t know what God has in mind for any person. Isabella has defied all odds and is now 3 1/2 years old. Thank God the Santorum’s believe that ALL life is precious and has value regardless as to how long that life is.

The Santorum case isn’t an exception, there are many such cases where the pregnancies have been misdiagnosed, and in some cases deliberately misdiagnosed where the mothers are urged to abort their children. In many of these cases, the mothers who decline to abort deliver healthy babies.

The Salvation Army does a lot of good work and they help a lot of people. Good organizations become “infiltrated” by forces that promote abortion, breakdown of marriage, sexual immorality, etc. They come as wolves in sheep’s clothing, and appear to be harmless and even helpful. Then, they begin to reveal their true or basically untrue colors. This is sadly maybe what is happening to the Salvation Army. Not for sure, but maybe.

Other organizations that do some good work but have been infiltrated by forces pushing these agendas include, the Girl Scouts, Macy’s, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, National NAACP, and Congressional Black Caucus to name a few.

The main point in all of this is that the Salvation Army and maybe other seemingly well intended groups or individuals often have what could be termed “misplaced compassion,” in that they want to help people but can’t find a way to help everyone involved in the situation. It the case of abortion, the mother and the child should both have the civil right of life.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Be Aware of the Link Between Abortion and Breast Cancer

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Every October people across America are reminded that breast cancer is a huge problem for women. Many organizations bring awareness to the issue and try to educate women about the possible causes of breast cancer but not all are telling you the whole truth.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is one such organization. They do some good but they also contribute to an organization, Planned Parenthood, which performs abortions. Along with all the listed causes/links to breast cancer: Women who have had abortions have an increased risk of getting breast cancer.

Donating to Komen for the Cure amounts to the same thing as writing two checks, one to Komen for the Cure and another to Planned Parenthood.

Why an organization that is trying to find a cure for breast cancer is teaming up with an organization that is helping women get breast cancer is unimaginable. That’s like an organization saying that they want to make abortions rare on the one hand while encouraging sexual activity among young people on the other hand (which Planned Parenthood does by the way).

According to a recent article on LifeNews.com, “’Many studies have linked an increased risk of developing breast cancer after an abortion, yet both Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood deny the risk abortion poses to breast health,’ TRTL says.

“The Tennessee pro-life leader says his group recommends the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, Polycarp Research Institute and Coalition on Abortion / Breast Cancer as three organizations dedicated to stopping breast cancer as ones pro-life advocates can support.”

Dr. Gerard Nadal does as good a job explaining why abortion leads to an increased risk of developing breast cancer as any I’ve ever seen. Read his article HERE.

Donate to a real breast cancer prevention organizations and help find a cure for breast cancer while telling Komen for the Cure that you know about their support of Planned Parenthood and you won’t be supporting either of them from now on.
