Karen Handel Scandals & Controversies
  • The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, decided to discontinue its partnership with Planned Parenthood on 2/1/2012. Komen funding for Planned Parenthood has provided nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams and resulted in 6,400 referrals for mammograms. The resulting public backlash was huge and ultimately led to Komen reversing and apologizing for the decision on 2/3/2012. Karen Handel, a former GOP candidate for governor known for her anti-abortion stance, also stepped down from her position as senior vice president for public policy of Susan G. Komen on 2/7/2012.
