Catholics Asked to Stop Komen Donations

According to the Associated Press:

The Diocese of Little Rock is urging its members not to donate to a breast cancer foundation known for its fundraising races across the globe because the group supports Planned Parenthood.

The diocese says the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation, which has invested about $1 billion in cancer outreach and research, gives money to Planned Parenthood to hold breast exams and offer education to women in its clinics.

"Donors cannot control how an organization designates its funds," a diocese statement reads. "Therefore, money donated for a specific service ... directly frees up funds to support other areas of an organization's agenda."
Hmmm... I read recently that for every new convert joining the Catholic church, there are four walking away. Even the Catholic World News service commented this week that there is a "vast exodus of Catholics leaving the faith."

No word yet on whether Komen has asked it's donors to stop supporting the Vatican out of concern we don't really know where that money is going.
