Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, was confirmed last month to the post of White House Chief of Protocol. Ms. Brinker previously served as President Bush's ambassador to Hungary. She is the former wife of Norman Brinker, founder and chairman emeritus of Brinker International Inc., operator of more than 1500 restaurant chains including Chili's Grill & Bar, Maggiano's Little Italy, and On the Border Mexican Grill.

Nancy Brinker was listed as an advisory board member in the 2002 Annual Report of Planned Parenthood of North Texas, the fifth largest Planned Parenthood affiliate in the nation. Planned Parenthood is the number one provider of abortions in the United States. During its 2005-2006 fiscal year the nonprofit Planned Parenthood Federation of America performed a record 264,943 abortions, according to its Annual Report.

The Foundation, as well as Susan G. Komen for the Cure are named for Nancy Brinker's sister, who died of breast cancer. Their declared purpose is to raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer, yet they inexplicably and steadfastly refuse to recognize the link between abortion and breast cancer. Instead, Susan G. Komen for the Cure awarded 72 grants totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood affiliates during the years 2000 through 2005. The grants are reported on the Susan G. Komen website by entering "Planned Parenthood" on Komen's searchable grant page.

In September of 2004, Eve Sanchez Silver, a breast cancer survivor and charter member of Komen's Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council, resigned from Komen, stating, "As a Christian and life affirming citizen I can not reconcile the Foundation's decision to affirm life with one hand and support its destruction with the other."

For 20 years, pro-lifers across the USA and Canada have participated in Life Chain on the first Sunday in October. They stand for one hour on a busy thoroughfare holding signs that say "Adoption — The Loving Option," "Pray to End Abortion," "Life — The First Inalienable Right," and other pro-life messages.

In our experience, Life Chain has made a difference. Years ago, when it first began, people driving by would frequently shake their fists at us or make obscene gestures, sometimes even driving very close to where we were standing in order to frighten us. So many people were angry that we dared to stand publicly and silently for life. But in recent years, the mood has noticeably changed. More often than not, we experience friendly gestures and people honk their horns in approval and give us the "thumbs up."

Americans are becoming more pro-life and we can be thankful for that. So, gather your family, friends and neighbors and join with your local Life Chain group on Sunday, October 7.
