FaxNotes – October 12, 2007


             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.”

             A disturbing report on October 8, 
2007 in the Lorain, Ohio newspaper, The Morning 
Journal, began this way; “Perhaps as early as 
today, people will have to start dealing with a 
new development as awesomely powerful and perhaps 
as potentially dangerous as the nuclear bomb.”

             The potential danger comes from a 
new development by scientist Craig Venter, 
described by the Journal as a “DNA wizard.”  He 
is the super-scientist who several years ago 
first spelled out the entire 3 billion “letter” 
code for human life written in every cell of our 
bodies.  Now, he told The Guardian, a British 
newspaper, he and his team have taken chemicals 
off the shelf and “built” an artificial 
chromosome, containing 381 genes made up of 
580,000 base pairs of the genetic code.  The 
artificial gene is to be plugged into a 
bacterium, where Venter expects it to take 
control, effectively turning it into a new and 
different life form.  He has already applied for 
a patent for the new life form.

             The problems inherent in this sort 
of research are obvious.  As The Morning Journal 
points out, the question is “How can people be 
trusted to harness artificial life when people 
can’t properly handle nuclear power” or 
effectively control the spread of fire, even after thousands of years?

             Why is the U.S. government awarding 
patents for life forms, as if they were 
mechanical inventions or products to be sold?

Never forget that you were once an embryo.
