1. What reason did the Susan G. Komen Foundation give for withdrawing its financial support from Planned Parenthood?

Planned Parenthood is being investigated by a congressional subcommittee for allegedly using taxpayer money to fund abortions. Though some Planned Parenthood facilities do provide abortions, the organization says federal funds are not involved. Some news reports have suggested a possible link between Komen’s decision and its hiring last April of former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, a vocal opponent of abortion rights. Komen spokespeople deny such a link.
