G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure 2011
Race to Discover the Cause Instead of Waiting for a Cure

This year’s 13th annual Susan Komen Race for the
Cure was met with thunderous storms as organizers repeatedly had to do
damage control and reset booths while attempting to set up in the wee
hours of the morning. Sizzling temperatures from this past week were
extinguished with a cold front that came through overnight including
storms that put a damper on things. Some of the participants didn’t
care for a few of the more risqué slogan tee-shirts participants were
sporting either, i.e. “Save Our Ta-Ta’s,” “Walking to Save 2nd
Base,” and “Operation Healthy Hooters,” to name a few. One breast
cancer survivor commented that she thought some people take it a little
over the edge, “If you go through it, you soon realize it’s not just
about your breasts, but your life.” But
the organizers were happy that they got over 64,000 registered
participants (though numbers were down) and made a little over $3
million on this year’s extravaganza.
the Gateway to the West Arch,
was again a sea of pink. We couldn’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. Over
4,905 breast cancer survivors joined the survivor’s walk. It grabbed
our heart strings. “Fight Like
a Girl.” Some survivors sported boxing gloves as they marched.
Touching! That is why our ministry continues to bring the truth of ALL the risks and preventable causes to this race. We love women. We
want to empower women with all their risk factors. We even have family
members who run in the race. Yet, something was different this year; it
was not just our ministry asking the question: “Why aren’t we racing
to find a cause?” but others were as well. And the first step would be
to tell women of ALL the preventable risks of breast cancer.
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 information on all of the risks of breast cancer. Why?
Because 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.
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
In 2009 Komen officials admitted providing funds through grants
to Planned Parenthood; from 2004-2009 over $3.3 million alone went to
the abortion business. These grants were designated for breast health
services, but a recent undercover sting operation via Live Action proved
Planned Parenthood does not offer mammograms or breast health services.
donors think their funds are going to help fight breast cancer where
those services are not offered; in addition, the largest abortion
provider in the country cannot guarantee the money is NOT going to go
for abortion services. In Planned Parenthood’s annual report in
2007-2008, they reported 31,729 fewer breast exams and 15,560 more
abortions. Who is policing how the donations are spent?
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.
Vital information that
surfaced in the early 1980's was deliberately 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; many have no history of breast
cancer in their families. It is so ironic that an organization
supposedly caring for women is responsible for thousands of their deaths
annually due to the proven link between elective abortion and breast
cancer, ie: Fred Hutchinson (Cancer Research Center)/Joel Brind Ph.D/Dr.
wouldn’t we 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 towards 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.
“There's 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. This
based foundation awards grants for breast cancer research, treatment,
and prevention. Race for the Cure started in 1983 and is now the largest
fundraiser walk worldwide.
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 devastating disease on
all fronts, until all women are cured. Jeremiah
30:17 “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of
thy wounds, saith the Lord.” Let’s race to discover the
cause, instead of waiting for a cure. It makes more sense, and we may
save more lives.
