Bloomfield woman questions fundraising events

To the Editor:

I think it's so sad and such a contradiction that the American Cancer Society gives thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood.

The mission statement of the American Cancer Society states that it is the nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.

Planned Parenthood is the number one abortion provider in the world, and it is highly plausible that abortion causes breast cancer!

Also, Planned Parenthood routinely distributes oral contraception, which increases a woman's risk of breast, cervical, and liver cancer!

Please, think about Planned Parenthood's cancer-causing work before donating to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, or Daffodil Days fundraising events.
