everybody aught to know

susan g. komen is giving $$$$ to planned parenthood funding abortions.

this is a VERY big deal.

they are doing wrong!

but letting us feel like we are doing good by giving.

when in turn they are enlisting our innocent help and doing very bad things.

but now we know,

we are held responsible.

Like many families, my grandmother and great-grandmother both had breast cancer. The issue of wanting to fight what harms your family or friends is noble. So when I tell people that I do not support Susan G. Komen an organization that exists to “fight breast cancer”, I normally get the look of one: why would you abandon your family or two: oh there goes one of those extremist.

However, my reasons are not that extreme, but rather principled.

I’m sure many of you reading this article have also been confronted with the issue of if I ‘m pro-life then how can I support an organization that supports the nation’s leading abortion provider. Hopefully, the following principles can shed some light on how to respond sympathetically, yet firm with why you cannot wear pink, or join the race, or all the various ways that Susan G. Komen is supported.

Principle # 1 Don’t give to organizations that promote the shedding of innocent blood.

If this were a list of commandments, we could start with Thou Shall Not Kill. However, Proverbs 6:17 states that one of the seven things God hates are hands that shed innocent blood.

Unfortunately, Susan G. Komen has given over $3 million dollars between 2003 and 2008 to Planned Parenthood which is the nation’s leading abortion provider.

While Susan G. Komen makes claims that these grants go for breast exams, once the funds go to Planned Parenthood they are fungible. For example, you can throw two twenty dollar bills into a purse one from a friend and one from your own account, but when you go to pay the light bill you use both.

The same is true with Planned Parenthood’s money it receives from Komen. Whenever someone applies for a grant they can say that while this $5,000 is going to breast cancer research, 20 percent of that money is going to pay for administrative costs like keeping the lights on and paying rent. So in essence, the money that people are raising to fight breast cancer is also going to keep the lights on at Planned Parenthood.

According to the 2008 Annual Report from Planned Parenthood, breast cancer services decreased by 4% and abortion procedures increased by 6%. In 2008, Susan G. Komen gave $731,000 to Planned Parenthood.

Principle # 2 Know and Recognize the Risk Factors for the Disease You are Trying to Prevent.

There are certain risks that can increase an individual’s chance of getting breast cancer. While Susan G. Komen says that they believe in knowing your risk factors, they have repeatedly denied the link between breast cancer and one of the greatest avoidable risk factors, abortion.

According to Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, “29 out of 38 worldwide epidemiological studies show an increased risk of breast cancer of approximately 30% among women who have had an abortion.”

When a woman has an abortion she interrupts the natural process of estrogen production and breast development. When a woman first becomes pregnant her body produces a Type 1 carcinogen, cancer causing agent, estrogen in order to nourish and provide for the baby. If the mother has her child, her body stops producing as much estrogen and her breasts mature. However, if that process is interrupted, the estrogen production continues and her breasts stay in an immature state, making them more susceptible to breast cancer.

oh jace,

you had me at hello.

you have thee sweetest personality.

when you are mad,

you are MAD!

but when you are happy,

oh your smiles are so priceless.

you LOVE to be with daddy and hate to see him go.

you are content to let high school youth group girls love on you.

you love all noises that sound boyish (fart noises, raspberries, the like)

all the noises that made lizzie weep with fright, you think are the ultimate bomb.

you are in love with “crazy piano” app on daddy’s new ipod. (i love that you are learning to control your hands even more)

you sneeze all the time (i must remember to change furnace filter!)

the hiccups have seemed to finally let you be!

the car seat isn’t so bad after all.

sissy is the bomb and if she is not near we are sad.

all boys allowed. you can spot a boy from across the room and will fuss until someone takes you over to talk.

frogs are your favorite.

although your new orange elephant is a very close second.

you are happiest with music playing.

kipper is super.

you would prefer to sleep with lucy, i’m certain.

is surely going to throw a fit when you can’t play out in the snow with big sis.

you have so many names: bubba, bubs, bub, jacer, jaceman, babyjace, jace monster, monster man! (say like superman!).

you have so many more but they are escaping me.

talk to your dad, it’s all his fault.

you LOVE everything shiny black, door knobs, ipod touch, cellphone…. you will smile and talk and talk to it – so cute.

you LOVE being thrown up into the air.

the squeal that follows is killer cute!

you “roar”.

here you are in the finest puff jacket!

love you lil man.
