The Susan G. Komen/PP connection

Dena mentioned something to me in email several days ago that came as a surprise to both of us. It might be a  surprise to you too.

The Susan G. Komen Foundation has been financially supporting Planned Parenthood for the last decade. And in fact, Planned Parenthood of the Greater Northwest is a co-owner, with Komen’s nephew (Eric Brinker), of a mall in Peoria, Ill.  Brinker sits on the board of the SGK Foundation.

From 2004-09, SGK gave over $3M to PP.

At least one Catholic Bishop (of Toledo, OH) is urging his parishioners to donate their dollars to other breast cancer research and support organizations.

Something to think about this October during breast cancer awareness month. Where are your donated dollars going?
