    FILE - In a Tuesday Aug. 10 2010 file photo, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel waves to supporters during an election-night party in Atlanta in her runoff with former Congressman Nathan Deal for the Republican nomination. According to a source with direct knowledge of decision-making at Komen headquarters in Dallas, a driving force behind Susan G. Komen for the Cure's decision this week to cut breast-screening grants to Planned Parenthood was Handel, who was hired by Komen last year as vice president for public policy after losing a campaign for governor in Georgia in which she stressed her anti-abortion views and frequently denouced Planned Parenthood. Komen's founder and CEO Nancy Brinker, in an interview with MSNBC, denied that, saying Handel didn't have a signifcant roll. (AP Photo/John Bazemore, File)

    In this Tuesday, March 8, 2011 file photo, Planned Parenthood supporter Peg Paulson of Carmel, Ind., left, and opponent Heather Pruett of Indianapolis argue during a rally at the Indiana Statehouse on the South Lawn in Indianapolis in response to an Indiana House bill which would end funding to Planned Parenthood because it provides abortions. The nation's leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is halting its partnerships with Planned Parenthood affiliates in 2012 - creating a bitter rift, linked to the abortion debate, between two iconic organizations that have assisted millions of women. Planned Parenthood says the cutoff, primarily affecting grants for breast exams, results from Komen bowing to pressure from anti-abortion activists. Komen says the key reason is that Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Congress - a probe launched by a conservative Republican who was urged to act by anti-abortion groups.
