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
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.
