Stop the Susan G. Komen Foundation from Funding Planned Parenthood

Stop the Susan G. Komen Foundation from Funding Planned Parenthood at theLake Elsinore City Council Meeting Tuesday, August 25, 2015 7:00 PM 183 N. Main Street, Lake Elsinore, California

The local Susan G. Komen Inland Empire organization is seeking to get approval to hold the “Race for the Cure” at the Elsinore Storm Stadium in October. While we admire Komen’s efforts to bring a cure to breast cancer, it is widely reported that Komen’s headquarters donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to the abortion factory known as Planned Parenthood.

Komen’s raised $672,000 at the 2014 Race for the Cure in Temecula. Although 75% of the funds raised at the Race for the Cure remain in the Inland Empire to provide breast cancer counselling or other services, 25% is sent to Komen’s headquarters.

Komen’s 17th annual Race for the Cure came before the Temecula City Council on August 11, 2015. After 16 years of history, it was expected that the City would again approve the donation of approximately $30,000 worth of in-kind City services (police, fire, medical and public works support) to the foundation. However, the Temecula City Council courageously voted to provide these service only if Komen agrees to ensure that all the proceeds raised at the Temecula Race for the Cure be used locally to support breast cancer awareness, detection and related services. Komen refused and now seeks to move the race to Lake Elsinore’s Storm Stadium.

Temecula City Councilman Mike Naggar publicly said, “I can’t support an organization, not one dollar, not one 50 cent piece, that supports Planned Parenthood.” Numerous videos have recently revealed the gruesome and heinous abortive activities of Planned Parenthood.

Come to the Lake Elsinore City Council meeting on Tuesday and ask that they put the same requirements on the Race for the Cure. If Komen is going to benefit from tax revenue, let’s demand that none of the proceeds raised at this event are allowed to flow to Komen’s headquarters. Komen claims the funds given to Planned Parenthood are not for abortions. Regardless, the donations from Komen will free other non-designated Planned Parenthood funding for abortions.

“We do not believe that tax revenue should be used to support Planned Parenthood, either directly or indirectly. We are not trying to prevent this event from occurring, just trying to ensure that the good work of the event organizers are not spoiled by the horrific actions of Planned Parenthood,” said Robert Tyler, General Counsel for Advocates for Faith & Freedom.
