A Christian publisher is withdrawing copies of the Cancer Awareness Bible, from stores because the Bible helped raised money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which in turn contributed to Planned Parenthood. Many conservative Christian groups oppose Planned Parenthood because of its role as an abortion provider, though many of the group's services are not abortion-related. The Cancer Awareness Bible, which was published by B&H Publishing Group -- a division of LifeWay Christian Resources, which is owned by the Southern Baptist Convention -- was sold with the stipulation that $1 from the sale of each book would go to the Komen Foundation to support breast health education, screening and treatment programs.
