BANNER

by Pauly Fongemie

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, in a stunningly quick and most transparent political calculation, but a not altogether unexpected one, given the Planned Parenthood hegemony over all things socio-political in these latter times, has bowed to media and Congressional pressure [some 23 at least Congressmen] and opted for the irony of all ironies in re-supporting Planned Parenthood or genocide central. Why ironical? Because research is more and more coming to link the use of oral contraceptives [which also leads to delayed childbirth, an intensifying risk] and abortion with breast cancer; Susan G. Komen is the most widely recognized foundation dedicated to defeating breast cancer. Two prominent web sites are our source here:

A 1996 analysis of worldwide epidemiologic data conducted by the Collaborative Group on Hormonal Factors in Breast Cancer found that women who were current or recent users of birth control pills had a slightly elevated risk of developing breast cancer. The risk was highest for women who started using OCs as teenagers. However, 10 or more years after women stopped using OCs, their risk of developing breast cancer returned to the same level as if they had never used birth control pills, regardless of family history of breast cancer, reproductive history, geographic area of residence, ethnic background, differences in study design, dose and type of hormone, or duration of use. In addition, breast cancers diagnosed in women after 10 or more years of not using OCs were less advanced than breast cancers diagnosed in women who had never used OCs. To conduct this analysis, the researchers examined the results of 54 studies. The analysis involved 53,297 women with breast cancer and 100,239 women without breast cancer. More than 200 researchers participated in this combined analysis of their original studies, which represented about 90 percent of the epidemiological studies throughout the world that had investigated the possible relationship between OCs and breast cancer (2).

Women have the right to know that two breast cancer risks are associated with abortion - a recognized risk and a debated risk.

THE RECOGNIZED BREAST CANCER RISK

All experts agree that the longer a woman waits to have her first full term pregnancy, the greater her breast cancer risk is. Delaying the birth of a first child significantly increases risk because the childless woman has immature, cancer-vulnerable breast tissue - Type 1 and 2 lobules where 95% of all breast cancers are known to develop. Her breast tissue does not mature into cancer-resistant tissue until the last months of a full term pregnancy. By the end of a 40-week pregnancy, 85% of her breast lobules are mature, cancer-resistant lobules known as Type 4 lobules.

A delayed first full term pregnancy increases her risk because it extends the length of time during which her breasts remain susceptible to carcinogens. Scientists define an early first full term pregnancy as one that takes place before age 24.

Although delaying the birth of a first child is a known cancer risk, few experts have the intellectual honesty or the political courage to admit that abortion contributes to the breast cancer epidemic by causing a countless number of women to delay their first full term pregnancies every year.

According to the Susan Komen web site:

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is dedicated to setting new standards for creative collaboration in the fight against breast cancer.

Our corporate partners provide us with the opportunity to reach people where they live, work, and play. In addition to a financial contribution, each of these organizations have found a unique way to get their customers and employees involved in raising awareness and hope that we will one day find the cures. We thank them for their commitment to the fight to end breast cancer.

Here is a current list of the financial partners of Susan G. Komen. If you possibly can - I know it is not always possible because of other constraints that include familial obligations beyond one's control - please defund Susan G. Komen by not purchasing the goods and or services from the following, where applicable. A number of these corporations do not deal directly with the public, although several do: [An Example, DELL Computers: make your next computer other than DELL and let the company know why. Ibid. for HP or Hewlett-Packard. Another possibility is Coldwater Creek which supplies clothing catalogues to consumers who might be candidates for purchasing this brand; Crayola Crayons for home schoolers another consideration, since there are other manufacturers of this type of product.] For those of us with windows operating systems, it is probably untenable to disassociate ourselves at this time because of the logistics that bear upon us. But I am sure you get the idea. We cannot do all things but we can at least do one thing. I am not familiar with many of these brands or companies, but I do know that HSN stands for Home Shopping Network, which overall supports Susan G. Komen, in fact, has scheduled broadcasts and special products that are dedicated to this effort throughout the year. Robinson Home Products are mainly kitchen brands, such as SUNBEAM and RUBBERMAID. The corporation is based in Buffalo, New York; the number is: 800-245-2433. You will note the NBC Today Show: one can just imagine how non-objective it must be in its coverage of the matter and or all things relating to the natural law. Avcor Healthcare Products, Inc. supplies specialty bandages and IVs to medical facilities, an example of a company the public generally does not deal directly with; however, one of their mottos is safety and the avoidance of infection, yet it funds an organization that assists Planned Parenthood to not only maim women while killing their children, this is anything but safe. Arizona AFO also supplies medical practitioners; Armouth International makes toys among other commercial goods. Think about this, toys are for children, how many toys are not being sold because of all the babies they help slaughter without maybe realizing it. Their web site says that they are a fifth generation family owned company, while this country has lost a third of this generation through abortion alone. Irony more than abounds! Especially here: Chasing Fireflies is a children's and babies' wear company, I mean really!  Emdeon "supplies revenue and payment cycle solutions with connections to more payers, providers and vendors than any other health care" oriented company. And on and on it goes. You can Google the other brands unfamiliar to you. Most are simply beyond the public's influence as such for now because they are distributors, not direct vendors.
