NEW YORK (AP) - The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is halting its financial partnerships with numerous Planned Parenthood affiliates. Komen says the key reason is that Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Congress to determine whether public money has been improperly spent on abortions. In December, Lifeway Christian Resources, the publishing division of the Southern Baptist Convention, announced a recall of pink Bibles it had sold because some of the money generated for Komen was being routed to Planned Parenthood. And Life Decisions International includes Komen on its "boycott list" of companies and organizations that support or collaborate with Planned Parenthood. The Komen grants, which totaled about $680,000 last year and $580,000 in 2010, went to at least 19 Planned Parenthood affiliates.
