Stop Destroying Komen, Karen Handel Must Go!

Susan G. Komen for a Cure has been a critically important organization in the fight against breast cancer. This week in a short-sighted decision, they almost destroyed their great organization by first cutting and then restoring funding to another life-saving organization, Planned Parenthood.

A driving force behind this purely political move was Karen Handel, who was hired by Komen last year as vice president for public policy after losing a campaign for governor in Georgia in which she stressed her anti-abortion views and frequently denounced Planned Parenthood.

Karen Handel has to go.
