Latina Komen Advisor Resigns

Share Article

Women of color have been the target of Eugenics policies for many years. Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood, has its roots in the destruction of people of color. Latina Advisor resigns over Komen's Planned Parenthood funding.


Eugenics - The study of hereditary improvement of the human race by controlled selective breeding. (American Heritage Dictionary, Standard Edition)

[Margaret Sanger…] built Planned Parenthood, on the ideas and resources of the eugenics movement." (

In one town alone, Barceloneta [Puerto Rico], 20,000 women were sterilized between 1956 and 1976 (Garcia 1985).(Garcia, Ana Maria. La operacion. Produced and directed by Ana Maria Garcia. 40 min. New York: Cinema Guild, 1982. Videocassette.)

"In 2003, Komen Affiliates awarded $38.4 million in grants to support community outreach programs, including 21 grants to their local Planned Parenthood chapters totaling more than $475,000. (Kristin Kelly, Public Relations Manager, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation;

Planned Parenthood is the number one provider of abortions internationally.

Four days ago Eve Sánchez Silver, a charter member of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council, (SGK) received an article from a colleague which suggested that SGK was funding Planned Parenthood.

She thought it was a lie. It wasn't.

As a two-time breast cancer survivor and charter member of SGK's Latina council she had quieted her personal convictions to work with a determined freedom, within The National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council, towards the eradication of breast cancer as a life-threatening disease, and, with the other honorable multi-cultural councils of SGK. She was devoted, purposeful and committed to The SGK Foundation.

Upon investigating the allegations that SGK was indeed funding Planned Parenthood through affiliate grants, she resigned from SGK, canceling several speaking engagements around the country and resigning as well from her own beloved council.

"As a Christian and life affirming citizen I can not reconcile The Foundation's decision to affirm life with one hand and support its destruction with the other." Says Silver.

"It makes me wonder what other abortion related agendas SGK may be supporting, like the black-out on the 16 statistically significant epidemiological studies linking abortion to breast cancer. Is one hand washing the other?" (

"It is my final advisory to The Susan G. Komen Foundation that it withdraw its continued financial support of Planned Parenthood, a multi-million dollar international institution which is systematically focused upon the abortion and the destruction of life.

"Breast services funds from the Foundation will only serve to white-wash Planned Parenthood's abortion agenda. The Eugenics program of the past has ushered in partial birth abortions of the present. Looks like Margaret Sanger's program is still right on track.

Why is The Komen Foundation giving Planned Parenthood its Race for the Cure money?" wonders Silver. "That money is earned by sneakered women struggling to raise money for research and grass-roots groups." Silver says. She met with leaders at Komen HQ in Dallas, who, she says, were sympathetic but turned a deaf ear to her pleas.

"Nancy Brinker, who founded SGK is listed for 2002 as a member of the advisory board of Planned Parenthood of North Texas...

        "In 2002, Planned Parenthood of North Texas        

         became the largest independent family planning

         provider in the state and the fifth largest Planned

         Parenthood affiliate in the nation." (North Texas

"It is my final advisory to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation that it withdraw its continued financial support of Planned Parenthood, a multi-million dollar, international abattoir, that is systematically focused upon the abortion and destruction of life."

"Send the Dallas Komen Headquarters your sneakers," says Silver, "And tell them you will not run in The Race For The Cure again, until they quit funding Planned Parenthood and ALL abortion related facilities.

Silver commented about her people and the nature of her resignation: "Breast cancer is no respecter of persons, but abortion is."

"The multi-cultural nature of our councils

makes our people, the very focus of that destruction."

"I cannot sit idly by."
