(NaturalNews) A "breast cancer awareness" Bible published by the publishing arm of the US Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has been pulled from bookstore shelves after it was discovered that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the infamous breast cancer group responsible for coining the popular "pink" campaigns, partners with the pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood.

A portion of the sales generated from the Here's Hope Breast Cancer Bible had been going to support Susan G. Komen's breast cancer awareness activities, which include pushing women to get blasted with radiation at annual mammogram screenings (http://www.naturalnews.com/mammograms.html). But this partnership was severed when it was discovered that one of the group's affiliates is Planned Parenthood.

"We made a mistake," said Thom Rainer, president of the SBC's LifeWay Christian Resources, in a statement. SBC's LifeWay had been selling the Bibles for the past several months. "Though we have assurances that Komen's funds are used only for breast cancer screening and awareness, it is not in keeping with LifeWay's core values to have even an indirect relationship with Planned Parenthood."

Susan G. Komen does not directly support abortion services, but the group has given grants to Planned Parenthood to conduct breast cancer screenings for "low-income, uninsured, or medically under-served women," according to reports. But the fact that the group funds the organization at all is troubling for the SBC and LifeWay, which see the alliance as a violation of its moral and ethical policies.

But what should trouble the SBC and LifeWay even more is a 2009 study released by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) which found that mammography screenings actually cause cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/027641_mammograms...). Mammograms blast women with radiation in order to detect the presence of tumors -- but this radiation dose can actually be a cause of the very disease it is touted at helping to prevent.

And in 2010, researchers from Oslo University Hospital in Norway found that mammograms effectively prevent a mere two percent of breast cancers, at best. When accounting for margins of error, this prevention rate hardly holds much statistical significance, especially when considering that mammograms lead to far more false positives than they do legitimate detections of malignant tumors (http://www.naturalnews.com/030063_mammograms...).

Susan G. Komen's primary goal is to get as many women as possible to get mammograms in the name of raising awareness about breast cancer, even though this method is unproven and ineffective. In light of this, the SBC and LifeWay would do well to get to the root of the issue and altogether reconsider their alliance with Susan G. Komen in the first place.
