The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta is ending its support for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity.
They cited concerns that the Komen Foundation gives money to Planned Parenthood, the nation's biggest abortion provider.
"We know they do good work. But they need to stop funding abortion," Archdiocese spokesperson Pat Chivers said.
"Their [Komen's] activities are in direct opposition to the teaching of the Catholic Church about the sanctity of human life," he added. "We see any support of an abortion is an intrinsic evil."
Komen said the money is for breast cancer screenings. But as CBN News has reported, Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms, and women can get screenings at a variety of other clinics.
Earlier this year, the Komen organization had dropped funding for the abortion provider but then resumed it after a media firestorm.
The Catholic archdiocese said the local Komen affiliate publicly encouraged the national Komen office to resume funding for Planned Parenthood.
