Planned Bullyhood: The Truth About the Funding Battle With Susan G. Komen for the Cure gives behind-the-scenes look at attacks from Planned Parenthood following the breast-cancer charity's announcement to cut grant funding.

09/17/2012 Comments (10)

In her new book, Karen Handel relays the story behind the “aggressive” and “partisan” attacks from Planned Parenthood following the breast-cancer charity's announcement to cut grant funding.

In a Sept. 7 interview, Handel outlined her new book, Planned Bullyhood: The Truth About the Funding Battle With...READ MORE
