ABSTRACT
The article offers the insights of Karen C. Handel, Susan G. Komen for the Cure vice president for public policy on the foundation's decision to cut funding to non-profit organization Planned Parenthood, as detailed in her book "Planned Bullyhood." Handel says that the foundation lost individual contributors, corporate sponsors and participants because it gave more or less $680,000-grants to Planned Parenthood. She adds that her race for Georgia's governor has turned on the abortion issue.
