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

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.
