Atlanta archdiocese breaks ties with Komen Foundation
October 08, 2012
The Atlanta archdiocese has instructed its parishes and schools not to join in fundraising activities for the Komen for the Cure Foundation.
A memo circulated among the institutions of the archdiocese acknowledges the contributions of the Komen Foundation toward a cure for breast cancer, but cites the organization’s continuing ties to Planned Parenthood as reason to avoid connections that could become “an occasion for scandal.”
