United Way and Planned Parenthood
Way of Greater Milwaukee recently announced that it surpassed its 2009 fundraising
goal, raising a total of more than $45 million. To read the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article
about United Way,
click here: http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/79010682.html.
Pro-Life Wisconsin feels it is
necessary to remind people that United
Way provides grants to Planned Parenthood,
encourages private and business donations to Planned Parenthood and promotes
Planned Parenthood as a place for people to volunteer. Planned Parenthood is
the state’s leading provider of abortions, both chemical and surgical.
How is United Way linked to Planned Parenthood
below are linked to corresponding Web sites.
United Way of Greater Milwaukee lists PPWI as a “community health partner”.
The Brown County United
Way directs people to PPWI
for emergency contraception, birth control, health exams, etc.
United Way of Greater Milwaukee lists PPWI on their 2009 pledge form.
United Way of Walworth County approved PPWI for a grant in
United Way of Dane County refers volunteers to PPWI and has a glowing write-up of PPWI on their Web site.
United Way of Wisconsin is promoted as an organizational member on PPWI’s Web site.
United Way collaborated
with the City of Appleton to provide a $5,000 grant to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin to
furnish Hispanic/Latina women with IUDs.
Volunteers needed; PLW is on Facebook
are needed for an upcoming project this spring and summer in Milwaukee. Contact Virginia Zignego at Pro-Life
Wisconsin at Virginia@prolifewisconsin.org
for more information or call (262) 796-1111. The aim of this project is to raise
money to further our pro-life media efforts in the Milwaukee area. Last summer’s volunteers
donated more than 500 hours, which resulted in Pro-Life Wisconsin purchasing
pro-life billboard space in Milwaukee.

Top scientist finally admits
abortion-breast cancer link
From World News Daily, by Jill Stanek [emphasis
In February 2003, Dr.
Louise Brinton, the National Cancer Institute's chief of the Environmental
Epidemiology Branch, Division of Cancer
Epidemiology and Genetics, served as chairperson at an NCI workshop in
Bethesda, Md., to assess whether abortion was implicated as a breast cancer
In the opinion of
"over 100 of the world's leading experts," said the subsequent NCI
report, including Dr. Brinton, the answer was no.
But six years later something happened. Dr. Brinton either
flipped her lid, flipped ideologies, restudied the evidence and decided to recant,
or couldn't sleep at night – and she began righting her wrong.
In April 2009, Brinton co-authored a research paper
published in the prestigious journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and
Prevention, which concluded that the risk of a particularly deadly form of
breast cancer that attacks women under 40 raises 40 percent if a woman
has had an abortion.
Pro-aborts are understandably mum about Brinton's
concession. Confirmation of the ABC link would eviscerate public acceptance
and participation in abortion. Exposure of a long-term cover-up would
eviscerate the savings accounts of abortionists and the abortion industry
following lawsuit losses of a magnitude as great as or greater than the
class-action lawsuits against tobacco companies.
