LifeWay Christian Resources recently announced that they will be pulling all copies of their pink bibles, which partially funded the breast cancer awareness
organization, Susan G. Komen Foundation. They are doing so because some of Komen's affiliates also donate money to Planned Parenthood, according to the Christian Examiner.
"When our leadership discovered the overwhelming concern that some of Komen's affiliates were giving funds to Planned Parenthood, we began the arduous process of withdrawing this Bible from the market," said LifeWay President Thom Rainer. "Though we have assurances that Komen's funds are used only for breast cancer screening and awareness, it is not in keeping with LifeWay’s core values to have even an indirect relationship with Planned Parenthood."
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during her lifetime. Not only is it the second most common form of cancer among women behind skin cancer, but it is also the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women, following only lung cancer.
