    In this April 14, 2012, photo Teresa Blackington of Alvaredo warms up before the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Fort Worth, Texas. Nine of the years 135 races have been held so far, with eight reporting a drop in participation numbers ranging from around 10 percent to 30 percent, Fort Worth reporting about a 23 percent drop. While race organizers cite the economy and other possible contributing factors, there is also an acknowledgment of the effect of the Planned Parenthood debacle, which angered both people on both sides of the abortion debate.

    FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2012 file photo, a small group of women protest outside the Susan G. Komen for the Cure headquarters in Dallas. Several high-ranking executives with Susan G. Komen for the Cure have resigned in the aftermath of Komen?s decision earlier this year to eliminate most of its funding for Planned Parenthood. Although some of the officials cited personal reasons, the resignations suggest the breast cancer charity is still in turmoil, even after restoring the money. (AP Photo/Rex C. Curry, File)

    In this Feb. 7, 2012, photo, Karen Handel speaks during an interview in Atlanta. All of a sudden, abortion, contraception and gay marriage are at the center of American political discourse, with the struggling _ though improving _ economy pushed to the background. Social issues don?t usually dominate the discussion in shaky economies. But they do raise emotions important to factors like voter turnout. Then, as the GOP nomination fight churned with no resolution in sight, the economy began to grow. Unemployment rates dipped. And a cascade of cultural political developments inspired a new set of talking points for the year?s crop of political hopefuls such as supporters of Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion services, helped force the resignation of Susan G. Komen For the Cure executive Handel after the breast cancer research group cut grants to the organization, then reversed course. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)
