Update: pro-life blogger Jill Stanek has discussed the American Cancer Society’s responses to this letter’s publicity.
When the American Cancer Society’s financial support for Planned Parenthood was questioned, they responded with the letter on the right, which you can click to enlarge.
“The American Cancer Society has historically funded a very limited number of Cancer Control grants to local Planned Parenthood affiliates to implement smoking cessation programs that trained clinic staff to provide smoking cessation assistance to patients and pregnant women. The grants were used exclusively for the implementation of cancer control programs to help patients seeking care. This program was specifically designed to improve the health of the unborn fetus and the child once born. The grants had the potential to do much good as Planned Parenthood delivers more children than any other medical practice in the US.”
The American Cancer Society’s grants to Planned Parenthood “to improve the health of the unborn fetus” is about as practical as the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of grants to the abortion giant for the imaginary mammograms Planned Parenthood offers.
Yes, Planned Parenthood does deliver babies…about 330,000 every year. The catch is these babies are delivered through a vacuum piece by piece, sucked into a jar, and thrown out as medical waste in the name of “choice.”
