Susan G. Komen Foundation's Pink Bibles = Abortion Dollars?

The Susan G. Komen Foundation — with B&H Publishing (a division of Lifeway Resources) — has published a theme Bible for cancer awareness. One dollar from the purchase of each Bible — entitled “Here’s Hope, Breast Cancer Awareness Bible” and paperbacked in Komen’s signature pink — will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the most widely known breast cancer organization in the United States. The Bible was released in October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.



 

The Susan G. Komen Foundation — with B&H Publishing (a division of Lifeway Resources) — has published a theme Bible for cancer awareness. One dollar from the purchase of each Bible — entitled “Here’s Hope, Breast Cancer Awareness Bible” and paperbacked in Komen’s signature pink — will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the most widely known breast cancer organization in the United States. The Bible was released in October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Given Komen’s long association with Planned Parenthood, the move has stunned pro-lifers everywhere and infuriated some Catholic organizations. The obvious rub comes from Planned Parenthood’s highly profitable abortion business, and pro-lifers say that the Here’s Hope Bible could channel funds from the sale of Holy Scripture to fund abortion.

Wal-Mart, the chosen re-seller, provides the publisher’s description on its website:

The Here's Hope Breast Cancer Bible is a reminder that God has not forgotten you, a friend, or loved one who has been impacted by breast cancer. Not only will you find encouragement and inspiration through testimonies from breast cancer survivors but more importantly you'll encounter God's life-sustaining words for you.

But pro-lifers have not failed to connect the dots between the sale of this Bible and the possible funding of abortion.
