(FOX NEWS) — A high-ranking official in the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer charity quit Tuesday, offering a defiant letter of resignation detailing the organization’s decision about whether it should continue funding breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood.

Karen Handel, the charity’s vice president for public policy, told Komen officials that she supported the move to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood. She said the discussion started before she arrived at the organization and was approved at the highest levels of the charity.
