Early prevention for breast cancer through mammograms is vital. Planned Parenthood only offers manual breast exams, not mammograms.
Free mammograms are available in your area, but NOT through Planned Parenthood.
What Planned Parenthood provides are artificial hormones (i.e., birth control) and abortions, which CAUSE breast cancer.
Take this opportunity to learn the truth. This is from Amber Pilkington of Dignity Women’s Center in San Antonio.
The World Health Organization lists combined oral contraceptives in the highest level of cancer-causing agents (Group 1). "Most combined oral contraceptives are taken orally, but they can also be delivered by injection, transdermal patch or vaginal ring." (Lancet Oncology 2005; 6:552-553)
A Mayo Clinic meta-analysis found the use of oral contraceptives before a first full term pregnancy increases the risk of pre-menopausal breast cancer by 44%. (Mayo Clinic Proceedings 2006;81 (10): 1290-1302) .... this includes use by non-sexually active women who take the birth control pill because they believe it is the only way to help with painful periods, acne, etc. There are other options!

Two studies in prominent medical journals have strongly linked use of oral contraceptives with aggressive, deadly, triple-negative breast cancer, which most often affects young women under age 50 and African Americans. (Cancer Research 2010;70 (2): 575-587 and Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention 2009; 18(4) 1157-1166)
Extensive studies since 1957 document a connection between abortion and breast cancer.
Eight medical organizations recognize the link between abortion and breast cancer.
Patrick Carroll (Pension and Population Research Institute) in his study of eight European countries found that abortion is the "best predictor" of future breast cancer rates. (Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons 2007; 12:72-78)
National Cancer Institute branch chief Louise Brinton, Ph.D., M.P.D. co-authored a study reporting a statistically significant 40% increased risk for women with induced abortions. (Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Preventions 2009; 18(4) 1157-1166.
"But the money Susan G Komen gave is not FOR abortions, it's for breast cancer screening."
Any money given to Planned Parenthood helps keep its doors open and supports all of its services. Likewise, former director of Planned Parenthood Abby Johnson has stated that Planned Parenthood does not even do mammograms, they must refer out. There are plenty of other clinics/organizations that could accept the money and use it for real screening who do not do abortions.
There are other organizations that provide research too: the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute (www.bcpinstitute.org).
