    It does matter if your ambition is to eradicate breast cancer.

    A million pregnancy tests followed by over 300,000 abortions and less than 1,000 adoptions.

    Oral contraceptives are acknowledged by the American Cancer Society to increase the risk of breast cancer. Susan G. Komen is dedicated to the eradication of breast cancer.

    They're screaming and pitching a national screed over less than a dollar? They're going to tell a poor woman she can't get an exam over 91 cents?
    If there's no $680K to hire the people for the breast exam or pay for any necessary equipments, there's no people or equipment to do the exam whether the women can pay 91cents or not.


    Also, PP is a $1B/year operation. SGK's $680K represents less than 0.07% of that. As in, 99.93% of PP's operating budget remains intact. SGK's contribution is less than negligible any way you look at it.

    But because of it, PP and its supporters have waged a national smear campaign against a foundation which until now they would have said does a tremendous amount of good for women's health.

    So, really -- who's putting the "politics before health"?
    The anti-Planned Parenthood paranoids. What falsehood have been said about the Komen foundation that it is a "smear campaign"? Planned Parenthood don't just get smeared, they get people who protest outside their clinics, and their workers threatened - all for the 3% of the services they provide, which is a legal medical procedure.

    Yes, and why is that not in the graph?

    Has the Komen foundation comes out against oral contraceptives as part of its campaign against breast cancer?

    So since full term pregnancies increase the risk of breast cancer, should SGK start funding abortions?

    Perhaps because your statistics are from 2010 and the graph is from 2008. A pie chart of your statistics would have a larger abortion section and a smaller adoption section.

    Feel free to consult Komen's website.

    In reality, American Cancer Society's website states that women who have had no children have a slightly higher breast cancer risk, while having many pregnancies or becoming pregnant at a young age reduces breast cancer risk.
