.- An upcoming episode of âFacing Life Head-Onâ will discuss the possible link between abortion and breast cancer and purports to expose the âirregular relationshipâ 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 âgood biological senseâ while alleging that the âcancer fundraising industryâ is covering up the link âbecause it is not good for fundraising to tell donors their abortions may be responsible for their breast cancers.â
The episode also alleges that âabortion industry feministsâ lead the breast cancer fundraising âindustry.â
âFacing Life Head-Onâ host Brad Mattes will lead the episode, titled âKomenâs Dark Side.â
Mattes will host Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer; Eve Sanchez Silver, president of Clear Research and former member of Komenâs 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.
âFacing Life Head-Onâ was nominated for âBest TV Talk Showâ by the National Religious Broadcasters.
