66,136 participants in the 11th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
a hot and hazy morning we arose early and headed over the mighty Mississippi
River to the annual
We noticed lewd and lascivious behavior outside the perimeters of the race. Various race participants were already inebriated. One shirtless man was performing a “striptease” for passerbys, including children, to view. Another woman walking alongside us commented, “That’s despicable,” as we entered the main entrance to this emotional event.
the Gateway to the West Arch,
You can’t help but feel empathy and hope for the many faces and generations walking, running, or supporting this cause. For some, the devastation this disease brings was obvious. “Fight Like a Girl.” Ain’t that the truth! That is why our ministry continues to bring the truth of ALL the risks and preventable causes to this race .We even have family members who run in the race.
The Susan Komen Foundation does a lot of good, but they are not doing all that they can. Komen is selectively telling the truth. They are not giving women all of the risks of breast cancer. Why? Most of the Susan Komen Foundations are giving funds to Planned Parenthood. They are not telling women that one of the most preventable risks is elective abortion.
Vital information that surfaced in the early 1980's was deliberately being withheld from women by the American Cancer Institute. Breast cancer was unheard of in the 1930's. What has been introduced to society that now has breast cancer at epidemic proportions? Elective abortion, and the numbers are soaring and victims are becoming younger and younger and a lot with no history of breast cancer in their families.
Women have the right to know that 28 out of 37 worldwide studies have independently linked induced abortion with breast cancer. Thirteen out of fifteen studies conducted on American women report increased risk. Seventeen studies are statistically significant, sixteen of which found increased risk. Most of the studies have been conducted by abortion supporters. The first study was published in an English publication in 1957 and focused on Japanese women. It showed a 2.6 relative risk or 160% increased risk of breast cancer among women who'd had an induced abortion.
Studies suggest that an induced abortion causes biological changes to occur in a woman's breasts which make her more susceptible to breast cancer. At the moment of conception, a woman’s estrogen levels elevate. With an induced abortion/miscarriage those hormones go haywire in a woman’s breast. These abnormal cells lie in wait. www.abortionbreastcancer.com
Why wouldn’t you want women to know this vital information? Because the incidents of breast cancer might just go down by preventing a proven cause. We can’t leave out the money pit. The Susan G. Komen foundation has raised a lot of money and a lot of that money is going and funding the very same risk factor: ABORTION. They give money to Planned Parenthood. If the truth were known they may lose some of that funding, and making money is what it’s all about.
a lot of money that is being made off sick women,” says Karen Malec,
President of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, adding: “We're
finding a pattern among these cancer fund-raising organizations” showing
that their leaders previously were associated with abortion-advocacy groups,
beginning with the founder of Komen herself, Nancy Brinker who started this
organization after she lost her 36 year old sister Susan to breast cancer.
We passed out the brochures “Why Aren’t Women being Told?” to the crowds of participants We even spoke with a few people. Most were receptive. At some point a News Channel 5 reporter interviewed us and we were able to share our commitment and love of women and interject the Gospel into the interview. She was impressed with the ministry and the recent addition to our large family. She commented on the prospect of prevention with our nine daughters alone, where the Lord made a way for us to bring up the “A” word, the word that makes everyone uncomfortable. And with that the interview ended with a hug. Praise God.
11th annual event raised a reported 3.25 million dollars. We held
the “Abortion/Breast Cancer” banner
as we exited this event down
We arrived just in time as we were receiving the morning report. A young, attractive girl pulled onto the hospital lot. Daniel talked to her and brought her over to the new and improved ultrasound van. We came inside and were able to watch her approx 20 week old baby, presumably a boy, auditioning for his little life on the ultrasound screen. She was broken; tears of joy rolled down her cheeks. We listened to the little heartbeats and went over resources and physician follow-up. She thanked us for being there and promised to keep in touch.
What an encouraging note to end on. We faced adversity and death, hope, love, and life in the end of our mission work this day. But when one lives for Christ do they really keep time? I think not. Silly girl.
Remember, fight like a girl and go on. Let’s love women enough to tell them ALL the risks and preventative measures so we can fight this horrible disease on all fronts, until all women are cured. Psalm 71:20 “Though You have made me see troubles, many and bitter, You will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth You will again bring me up.”
