Jewish Doctors Banned from Susan G. Komen "International" Breast Cancer Conference

James Taranto, writing in yesterday's Wall Street Journal, has a brief report about the banning of Israeli doctors from an "international" conference on breast cancer held in Egypt and sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Komen's timidity on this matter is a disappointment, of course. But it's certainly not the only problem that the Foundation has. A much bigger one is their choosing political correctness over good sense and good science -- as in their partnership with Planned Parenthood and their ongoing denial of the links between abortion and breast cancer. See these Vital Signs posts (1 and 2) for more.


Dan Connor alerted me to the great news that this situation has changed and that doctors from Israel have been re-invited to participate in the conference. This doesn't change the dire needs of the Susan G. Komen Foundation to 1) start telling the truth about the increased risks of breast cancer for aborted women and 2) disassociate itself from the nation's leading abortionist, Planned Parenthood.

But the reversal about banning Israeli doctors at this conference is most welcome news.
