Southern Baptist publisher recalls pink Bibles

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - 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
(http://tnne.ws/u90K40).

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.
