You should have an investment plan with allocation percentages of stocks and bonds. Assuming that what you withdraw from the IRA will be reinvested in a similar way in a taxable account it doesn't make much difference which is withdrawn.
However, it is generally preferred to have bonds in tax advantaged accounts so from this standpoint it might be preferred to withdraw stocks since they are better held in a taxable account.
