Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — A new video released by a group that serves as a watchdog for information on the link between abortion and breast cancer exposes the relationship between Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.

Karen Malec, the head of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer tells LifeNews.com that the video, "Komen’s Dark Side," exposes the irregular relationship between the breast cancer organization and Planned Parenthood.

In 2007 alone, Komen chapters gave $711,485 from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2006 to Planned Parenthood affiliates.

The amount of the grants from Komen affiliates to Planned Parenthood appears to be on the rise and 25 Komen affiliates now have a partnership with the abortion business.

The video reports on the cover-up of the abortion-breast cancer link and, with an airing soon on TBN, could explain the link and the relationship to millions of households.

"Komen’s officials have no right to keep women in the dark about a breast cancer risk, while at the same time giving funds to Planned Parenthood, a primary cause of the breast cancer epidemic," Malec says.

The video explains the biological explanation behind the abortion-breast cancer link and how abortion advocates and cancer groups are preventing women from getting the information.

"The cancer fundraising industry is covering up the link, in part, because it is not good for fundraising to tell donors their abortions may be responsible for their breast cancers," Malec added.

The video features television host Brad Mattes along with Malec; Eve Sanchez Silver, president of Clear Research and former Latina adviser for Komen; and Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, clinical assistant professor of surgery at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center and a breast cancer surgeon.

The show "Facing Life Head-On" will broadcast the video on selected cable television stations during the week of March 8.
