People give Susan G. Komen money to fight breast cancer and Susan G. Komen gives some of that donated money to the babykillers at Planned Parenthood. I don't think people who give money to Susan G. Komen to fight breast cancer, know their money is going to an abortion organization that kills unborn babies.

I have been a walker for the cure and will not longer support Susan G. Komen because they have allowed politics to over ride what is best for women's health. Also as a note on the other comment, while money from Susan G. Komen did go to planned parenthood that money was specifically used for breast cancer screenings for low income women.

I think the previous posters need to get a clue and a life!

Today is not about politics. It's about those sixteen hundred walkers who cared enough to make this incredible personal contribution to finding the cure for breast cancer. This is their moment. And as a breast cancer survivor, I thank each and every one of them from the bottom of my heart.
