Karen Handel, a woman who doesn't want other women to have the right to choose, has resigned from her position as Vice President for Public Policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure. During her failed campaign to become Georgia's governor in 2010, she repeatedly stated her pro-life views and condemned Planned Parenthood for offering women abortions.
Handel claims that the policy leading to the breast cancer charity cutting funding to Planned Parenthood was in the works before her arrival, but a source — speaking in anonymity in fear of repercussions — says otherwise.

When it comes to saving lives that may be lost to breast cancer, there is no room for politics. Thankfully, Susan G. Komen for the Cure realized this before it was too late and will continue funding Planned Parenthood.
The organization dedicated to breast cancer awareness has released a statement apologizing for instating a policy preventing them from funding organizations under investigation by the government, which read:

So we all have heard that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a long time supporter of Planned Parenthood, abruptly cut off their funding because of their
pro-life agenda new policy that forbids them from funding organizations that support a woman's right to choose are under government investigation, right?
In case you haven't, they did and are giving the BS excuse that they are simply severing ties because a Republican Florida senator launched an investigation to determine whether or not the women's health organization was using federal money to fund abortions.

What does abortion have to do with free breast cancer screenings? Absolutely nothing, other than the fact that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, one of Planned Parenthood's largest donators, doesn't like it.
Komen is citing policy change as the official reason for cutting off funding that has already supported 170,000 of the breast exams and 6,400 mammogram referrals Planned Parenthood made in the last 5 years. The national breast cancer awareness group has reportedly adopted criteria that forbids it from funding any organization under government investigation.
