Planned Parenthood accused of aggression, partisan attacks

Former Komen executive reveals Planned Parenthood backlash in new book
This Catholic News Agency story tells about Karen Handel's new book, which tells of "aggressive" and "partisan" attacks from Planned Parenthood on Komen for the Cure after the breast-cancer charity announced a cut in grant funding to Planned Parenthood.

Handel told CNA that when Komen for the Cure announced Feb. 1 that it had decided to restructure funds to Planned Parenthood, the charity "was trying to make a common sense business decision."

In a Sept. 7 interview, Handel outlined her new book
Planned Bullyhood: The Truth about the Funding Battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which was released Sept. 11 by Howard Books.

Planned Parenthood has been the subject of a federal investigation since last year. The investigation was launched after the pro-life group Americans United for Life issued a report indicating financial irregularities and involvement in assisting those involved in sex-trafficking and prostitution.
