NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Southern Baptist Convention's publishing division is recalling pink Bibles it sold to support breast cancer research, after it says some money went to Planned Parenthood.
Lifeway Christian Resources no longer markets the pink-bound version of The Holman Christian Standard Bible and is recalling copies it sold, according to The Tennessean.
A portion of the purchase price went to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The Komen foundation issued a statement in which it said all proceeds from the Bible sales were going to breast cancer screenings and expressed disappointment in Lifeway's decision.
Lifeway's move came after complaints that some local Komen affiliates were helping fund cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood, which also provides abortions.
The pink Bibles had been in stores since October.
