In the wake of the Komen-Planned Parenthood controversy, Lance Armstrong, cancer survivor, champion cyclist and Livestrong founder and chairman announced that his cancer group will donate $100,000 to the nation’s biggest abortion business.

He issued the following statement:

“For 15 years, the Lance Armstrong Foundation has served people and families affected by cancer, especially those in underserved communities. We join Mayor Bloomberg and our partners in the philanthropic community today in their efforts to preserve access to cancer screening for women throughout the U.S. The Lance Armstrong Foundation will add an additional $100,000 to Mayor Bloomberg’s matching challenge for Planned Parenthood’s cancer services fund.”

“The donation is going to the Planned Parenthood Cancer Services Fund. The donation will be restricted to this fund which goes to provide cancer screening services in local communities.”

As Dr. King said, “there is no greater injustice than inequality in health care.” Cancer, on the other hand, respects no boundaries. It’s a big, vicious disease that has no regard for race, gender, income or which side of the aisle we call home. Its survivors – 12 million of us throughout the U.S. – deserve every bit of support we can muster. The Lance Armstrong Foundation will continue working to expand access to healthcare as we always have.”

Livestrong CEO, Doug Ulman, appeared on MSNBC this morning to announce the donation.
