Planned Parenthood is defunded in Ohio!
The Ohio legislature has passed and the governor has signed HB 294, which forbids state health funds from going to Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider in the state. Thank Speaker of the House Clifford Rosenberger and Senate President Keith Faber for passing this legislation into law and standing up to the abortion giant Planned Parenthood!
HB 294 cuts off the $1.3 million that the Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates had received from the Ohio Department of Health. That money will go to support HIV testing, cancer screenings, and violence-against-women programs at community health centers throughout the state.
“Ohio legislators have wisely redirected existing funding from the scandal-plagued Planned Parenthood to thousands of better, low-cost community health care providers that serve women and families far more comprehensively,” said Casey Mattox, senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom. “Ohio taxpayers should not be forced into an immoral partnership with Planned Parenthood.”
Ohio is the ninth state to defund Planned Parenthood since undercover videos exposed the abortion provider’s role in harvesting the body parts of aborted babies.
“Thanks to the thoughtful, careful work of the Ohio House and Senate, the taxpayer dollars of pro-life Ohioans like myself will now be shielded from the abortion industry,” said Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life.
Please thank Speaker Clifford Rosenberger and Senate President Keith Faber for their courageous actions against Planned Parenthood and their efforts to protect human life at all stages.
