This is deeply troubling to me. The Cooperative Program helps support all the SBC seminaries. Most SBC churches contribute part of your tithes and offerings to the CP. One of the objections to stop contributing to the CP is that it supports missionaries. The church can still support any missionaries they want without sending money to the CP.
If you are a member of an SBC church, It is your duty to know what your money is supporting.
I have updated this with the actual news article.
