Women of color have been the target of Eugenics policies for many years. Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood, has its roots in the destruction of people of color. Latina Advisor resigns over Komen's Planned Parenthood funding.
Eugenics - The study of hereditary improvement of the human race by controlled selective breeding. (American Heritage Dictionary, Standard Edition)
"Margaret Sanger built Planned Parenthood, on the ideas and resources of the eugenics movement." (blackgenocide.org)
In one town alone, Barceloneta, Puerto Rico, 20,000 women were sterilized between 1956 and 1976. (Garcia 1985) (Garcia, Ana Maria. La operacion. Produced and directed by Ana Maria Garcia. 40 min. New York: Cinema Guild, 1982. Videocassette.)
"In 2003, Komen Affiliates awarded $38.4 million in grants to support community outreach programs, including 21 grants to their local Planned Parenthood chapters totaling more than $475,000. (Kristin Kelly, Public Relations Manager, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation; curvers.squarespace.com)
Kristin Kelly is no longer working at SGK.
Planned Parenthood is the number one provider of abortions internationally.
Four days ago Eve Sanchez Silver, a charter member of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council (SGK) received an article from a colleague which suggested that SGK is currently funding Planned Parenthood.
She thought it was a lie. It wasn't.
As a two-time breast cancer survivor and charter member of SGK she had quieted her personal life convictions to work with a determined focus, within The National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council, towards the eradication of breast cancer as a life-threatening disease, and, as with the other honorable multi-cultural councils of SGK, she was honored, purposeful and committed to The SGK Foundation.
Upon investigating the allegations that SGK was indeed funding Planned Parenthood through affiliate grants, she resigned from SGK, canceling several speaking engagements around the country and resigning as well from her own beloved council.
"Not One Life Is Negotible"
"As a Christian and life affirming citizen I can not reconcile The Foundation's decision to affirm life with one hand and support its destruction with the other," says Silver.
Pro-Choice Colleagues Agreed
"Pro-choice colleagues I spoke with agreed, wondering why Komen was not using its resources to fund more grass-roots initiatives, instead of handing money to a huge, established organization like Planned Parenthood."
"It makes me wonder what other abortion related agendas SGK may be supporting, like the black-out on the 16 statistically significant epidemiological studies linking abortion to breast cancer. Is one hand washing the other?"
Nancy Brinker, Komen Founder
BOARD MEMBER North Texas PLANNED PARENTHOOD
"Nancy Brinker, who founded SGK is listed for 2002 as a member of the advisory board of Planned Parenthood of North Texas...
"In 2002, Planned Parenthood of North Texas became the largest
independent family planning provider in the state and the fifth
largest Planned Parenthood affiliate in the nation." (North Texas 2002 annual report. Download their report: http://www.ppnt.org/content/2002_Annual_Report.pdf)
Breast services funds from the Foundation will only serve to white-wash Planned Parenthood's abortion agenda.
Why is The Komen Foundation giving Planned Parenthood its Race for the Cure money?" wonders Silver. "That money is earned by sneakered women struggling to raise money for research and grass-roots groups!" Silver says. She spoke directly to leaders within The Komen organization who, she says, were sympathetic but turned a deaf ear to her pleas.
"It is my final advisory to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation that it withdraw its continued financial support of
Planned Parenthood, a multi-million dollar, international abattoir,
that is systematically focused upon the abortion and destruction of life."
"Send the Dallas Komen Headquarters your sneakers," says Silver, "And tell them you will not run in The Race For The Cure.
Silver commented about her people and the nature of her resignation:
"Breast cancer is no respecter of persons."
"The multi-cultural nature of our councils
makes our people the very focus of that destruction."
"I cannot sit idly by."
