An upcoming episode of “Facing Life Head-On” will discuss the possible link between abortion and breast cancer and purports to expose the “irregular relationship” between the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer organization and Planned Parenthood.
The episode will argue that an abortion-breast cancer link makes “good biological sense” while alleging that the “cancer fundraising industry” is covering up the link “because it is not good for fundraising to tell donors their abortions may be responsible for their breast cancers.”
The episode also alleges that “abortion industry feminists” lead the breast cancer fundraising “industry.”
“Facing Life Head-On” host Brad Mattes will lead the episode, titled “Komen’s Dark Side.”
Mattes will host Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer; Eve Sanchez Silver, president of Clear Research and former member of Komen’s Latino Advisory Committee; and Dr. Angela Lanfrachi, MD, FACS, a clinical assistant professor of surgery at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center in New Jersey who co-founded the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute.
"Komen's officials have no right to keep women in the dark about a breast cancer risk, while at the same time giving funds to Planned Parenthood, a primary cause of the breast cancer epidemic," Malec charged, according to a press release. She claimed that in 2007 the Susan G. Komen Foundation gave $700,000 in funding to Planned Parenthood.
The episode will air on cable television stations during the week of March 8, 2009.
“Facing Life Head-On” was nominated for “Best TV Talk Show” by the National Religious Broadcasters.
