Supporting Life

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a big deal in many towns. It seems like a great organization, a great opportunity to get out there and walk all night to raise money and search for cures for cancer. I'm all in favor of cancer detection, treatment, and prevention. I'm in favor of life.

The American Cancer Society supports human embryonic stem cell research, a branch of research which not only has never found a cure for anything but which requires destruction of a human, albeit a very young human, each time it does an experiment. This is not in favor of life.

The American Cancer Society provides grants to Planned Parenthood, suggesting that they engage in cancer screening. In fact, Planned Parenthood does not do any cancer screening, they simply refer people to other organizations. Planned Parenthood is, however, the major provider of abortions in this country. This is not in favor of life.

Guess I can't participate in the Relay for Life. Despite the good that an organization may do, when it turns around and supports evil by providing funding and referrals for destruction of human life, I can't get onto that bandwagon.
