What Breast Cancer Is, And Is Not (Video)

What Breast Cancer Is, And Is Not (Video)

 

The dramatic story from this week in women’s health revolves around the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s decision to cease their partnership with Planned Parenthood. Fortunately for women everywhere, they reversed their decision this morning, in part due to a tremendous outcry from all corners of the country.

The video below features Linda, a breast cancer survivor, who very powerfully explains why breast cancer is not about politics and religion.

Thank you for sharing your story, Linda!

Yes, the bottom line is that religion and related politics should not impose their personal choices on others who do not espouse those religious beliefs on women's health--that denies freedom of religion to all others and should not be the point on decisions that should be based on science and evidence.
