American Cancer Society Supports Planned Parenthood And Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Editor:

Now that the American Cancer Society is in Payson again kicking off its annual fund-raiser (three months ahead of the actual event) it is time to remind those of us who still care about such things that: (1) the ACS recruits volunteers to raise money and then donates money to Planned Parenthood -- the largest and wealthiest abortion provider on the planet; (2) the ACS raises money to fight cancer but refuses to tell women that abortion is a significant riskfactor for breast cancer; and (3) the ACSWeb site encourages federally-funded, human- destructive embryonic stem cell research--an "intrinsic evil" according to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Volunteering to raise money for the ACS is certainly politically correct and laudable on the surface, but does it make sense to donate our time to them when there are other cancer-fighting groups that do not support Planned Parenthood and embryonic stem cell research or deny the link between abortion and breast cancer? These groups include the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, Matercare International, Polycarp.org, the Coalition on Abortion and Breast Cancer, and the National Catholic Bioethics Center.

And, did I fail to mention that the ACS had accepted donations from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a San Francisco-based homosexual mime troupe which raises money by ridiculing nuns and priests?
