LifeWay pulls Bible benefiting Susan G. Komencomment (0)

LifeWay Christian Resources is pulling all copies of a special pink-covered Bible that partially benefited Susan G. Komen for the Cure because some of Komen’s affiliates have given money to Planned Parenthood.
For each sale of the Here’s Hope Breast Cancer Awareness Bible — published by LifeWay’s publishing arm, B&H, and sold in mass retail stores like Walmart — $1 was donated to Susan G. Komen, a popular charity that works toward finding cures for and raising awareness of breast cancer.
Earlier this year the pro-life group American Life League reported that 18 of Komen’s affiliates had given more than $600,000 to Planned Parenthood during 2009–10.
Komen has tried to distance itself from Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices, saying in a statement that “under no circumstances are Komen funds used to fund abortions or other nonbreast services.” (BP)
