St. Louis turnout sets national record for breast cancer fundraiser
This race raised at least $2.1 million, not counting last-minute donations and matching grants offered by some employers. “We are all about St. Louis being #1.” Komen race participant
On a warm, beautiful Saturday morning the 8th annual St. Louis Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure was in full swing. The event boasted over 64,000 in attendance, the largest in the country. There were thousands of cancer survivors, friends, and families supporting each other and remembering those who have lost their battle to breast cancer.
We brought the truth to the largest fundraiser event of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation in St. Louis, MO.
It seems they had everything balloons, food, cameras, media personalities, bikes, dogs, and families. An entire city painted pink with the Gateway to the West, the St. Louis Arch in the backdrop. All that was missing was the truth and four saints brought it to everyone's attention- the risk and correlation between breast cancer and abortion! We gave them heaven. Angela, Ken, Mia, and Savanah went through the crowds delivering God's mail wrapped in pink to the organizers, participants, and media. We walked throughout throngs of men and women, racers, and supporters handing out pink “Abortion Raises Breast Cancer Risk” brochures. Only a few people turned down the brochure, most saw the title and seemed interested.
You couldn't help but notice both joy and determination on their faces and feel compassion for these sisters who were valiantly fighting this giant called breast cancer. The sad part was realizing that approximately 40,410 women died in the year 2005 of breast cancer, and vital information that surfaced in the early 1980's was deliberately being withheld from women by the American Cancer Institute. Breast Cancer was unheard of in the 1930's. What has been introduced to society that now has breast cancer at epidemic proportions? Elective abortion, and the numbers are soaring. Victims are younger and younger, a lot of them have no history of breast cancer in their families.
After we gave out our last brochure we unrolled the banner and strategically stood at the finish line where the racers would run right smack into the truth. So many participants stopped to read it. It was like a pile-up at the Indy-500. When they read the “A” word, you could see their surprise and slowly watch their anger rise up. Not all, just some. The banner read “Abortion is a cause of breast cancer. Why aren't women being told? www.abortionbreastcancer.com “
A few passers-by and bystanders made a few comments, “Does that mean that everyone that's had an abortion would get breast cancer?” It cannot be said that all women who have breast cancer have had abortions. Similarly, not all women who have had abortions will get breast cancer. Nevertheless, abortion is the most preventable risk factor for breast cancer.
A man said to Ken, “You don't know the facts.” We replied, “Go to the website- get informed. We care about women, that's why we're here; to love them enough to tell them the truth.”
One of the leading causes of breast cancer is elective abortion. Why won't the Susan Komen foundation at least give women this vital information?
We then walked slowly down the main thoroughfare exhibiting the banner. All eyes and cameras looked in bewilderment at the truth as it paraded down the street.
Angela had a chance to give a brochure to News Channel Five anchors Mike Bush and Deanne Lane. We were within the T.V. camera's view and they were also able to see the banner as we marched down Market Street with it.
Women have the right to know that 28 out of 37 worldwide studies have independently linked induced abortion with breast cancer. Thirteen out of fifteen studies conducted on American women report increased risk. Seventeen studies are statistically significant, sixteen of which found increased risk. Most of the studies have been conducted by abortion supporters. The first study was published in an English publication in 1957 and focused on Japanese women. It showed a 2.6 relative risk or 160% increased risk of breast cancer among women who'd had an induced abortion.
Studies suggest that an induced abortion cause biological changes to occur in a woman's breasts which make her more susceptible to breast cancer.
How many young teenage girls have put themselves at risk due to the accessibility of abortion-on –demand at the Hope abortion mill in Granite City, Illinois, where no parental consent is necessary?
Our mission is to help women with good, healthy choices, ones that won't harm them. Women are responsible for their health care; shouldn't they be made aware of the risks and the most preventable cause of breast cancer? Why aren't women being told of this link?
As I stood gazing into the overflow of pink I realized three and four generations were standing in clusters, “Our daughters and their daughters are our future, and it is up to us who care to share the hard truth to those who do not.”
We then returned across the river to Granite City, the City of Slaughter and stood at their gates where approx 51 mothers were inside, having their children killed. Throughout the late morning four precious babies, including a set of twins from Springfield , Missouri , were spared.
Breast cancer is the leading cancer in women. Not having an abortion is the most preventable cause of the disease. Many of the risk factors can be controlled by the choices women make. Choosing between abortion or childbirth influences breast cancer risk. Why is the abortion industry and the media doing a complete blackout on the truth behind the elective abortion/ breast cancer link? When the abortion clinic says, “It's a woman's right,” without informing them with all the truth, it should be rephrased, if you have an elective abortion, you could be receiving “last rites”
