Komen foundation stops funding breast cancer screenings but continues with archaic animal experiments
Norfolk, Va. - As
people react to the Susan G. Komen Foundation's decision to stop funding
controversial breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood, PETA is sending
the health-care provider a list of cancer charities—including the American
Breast Cancer Foundation, Breast Cancer Fund, BreastCancer.org, the Doctor

Susan G. Komen Foundation won't fund breast cancer screening, but it will pay
to kill animals in archaic and unreliable experiments," says PETA Vice
President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo. "PETA hopes our
list will help Planned Parenthood find a partner more dedicated to preventive
care and modern, humane research."
one recent study funded by the Komen foundation, mice had tumor cells injected
into their brains. When the mice developed brain tumors, they were killed, and
the tumor tissues were implanted into other mice, who had their necks broken
and their brains cut out and dissected. Cancer studies on animals are
notoriously unreliable. PETA recently reviewed more than 30 years of cancer
studies on rodents and found that the vast majority are inadequate or have
produced ambiguous, unusable results.
