Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, on Wednesday mocked Karen Handel of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure after the charity cut off all grants to Planned Parenthood.

Nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams performed by Planned Parenthood were supported by Komen grants.

“I think she said it herself when she was running for governor, when she said, ‘I don’t support the mission of Planned Parenthood,’” Winstead said on Current TV’s Countdown.

“And the mission of Planned Parenthood is to provide affordable health care for low-income women. And if you don’t support that mission, I don’t know how you can call yourself pro-life in the least.”

Handel is the vice president of public policy at Komen. During an unsuccessful run for governor of Georgia, she vowed to cut off state funds to Planned Parenthood.
