“… for what crime was she killed?” (Holy Qur’an, 81:9)
“…therefore choose life ... (Deut. 30:19)
Due to intense backlash by liberal, pro-abortion groups, Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation retracted its plans to discontinue funding of Planned Parenthood.
Chief Executive Nancy G. Brinker, said that the decision had nothing to do with the group's position on abortion, but rather a new policy, barring grants to groups under governmental investigations.
Not surprising, the reaction was swift and intense. Funding to PP increased dramatically, with NYC Mayor Bloomberg pledging $250K to the organization, implying that “politics” was behind Susan G. Komen’s decision.
Those who support Planned Parenthood argue that they provide essential services to women, with abortion being just one part.
Opponents on the other hand, speak to what is considered to be a hidden agenda to encourage the taking of sacred life, for mere convenience, under the mantra of “choice”.
While Planned Parenthood enjoys strong support amongst those who would tie it in to civil or women’s rights, what is not known by many, is its sinister origin, as far as 1916, by Margaret Sanger, who was a eugenicist and racist. Said she about black people, "they are…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ’spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
It's good to talk.
