NEW YORK, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At a time when religion is used to divide people over the issues of birth control and reproductive health, Auburn Seminary, a major religious institution, will honor Cecile Richards, President, and Cecilia Guthrie Boone, Chair of the Board of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) at its 16th Annual Lives of Commitment Benefit Breakfast on Wednesday, May 2, 2012.
