Interested in knowing "the truth behind the headlines about the Planned Parenthood funding battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure"? Of course you are. And Simon Schuster imprint Howard Books knows this, which is exactly why the publisher of adult trade fiction and non-fiction books with "a reach into both the Christian and general markets," has scheduled former Susan G. Komen executive Karen Handel's book, Planned Bullyhood, for a Sept. 11 release.
Handel is a former senior vice president of public policy at Komen. She resigned in February amid a furious public debate over the breast cancer charity's decision to cut off, then reinstate funding for Planned Parenthood.
Handel is a Republican who opposed abortion as a candidate for Georgia governor. She actively supported Komen's move to end the grants.
