Ohio House passes bill to deny funds to Planned Parenthood

Source: Reuters

Ohio state legislators on Wednesday passed a bill blocking state and federal funds for groups that perform or promote abortions, effectively cutting $1.3 million annually used by Planned Parenthood clinics for HIV testing, pre-natal care and other programs.

Governor John Kasich, a Republican presidential candidate, is expected to sign the bill, which the state Senate had already passed.

House Bill 294, which passed 59 to 32, blocks women's health providers that also provide abortions, or groups that refer patients to those providers, from receiving funds from a variety of state and federal grants.

Planned Parenthood said the bill would hinder lower-income women's access to testing for sexually transmitted diseases, HIV tests and well-baby programs. According to its website, Planned Parenthood has 20 clinics in Ohio. Two provide abortions and all provide abortion referral.

With most Republicans keen to deny funds to Planned Parenthood, Kasich will have the opportunity to sign the bill ahead of the party's presidential primary on Feb. 20 in South Carolina.

6. Yeah proud...until it's their daughter.

Then they will drive to a state where an abortion is legal and do it there.

16. In some states that is illegal too.

 

At one point Ohio was considering making crossing state lines for an abortion an outrageous crime. I can't remember if it was murder or what. I can't keep track of the crazies in Columbus. All I know is the lack of intelligence in these governing bodies is frightening!

13. John Kasich is making a huge mistake, I requested that he tour Planned Parenthood, talk to

the employees and management and see for himself what PH actually does. But the GOP believe the lies, the criminal videos, instead of getting the real truth. John is NOT FIT to lead this nation as is any Republican. They don't tell the people they are closing down the VA. making vets use private medical services. They fail to tell the people there real mission to become President. There mission is destroy. Rubio indicted he would UNDO everything Obama has accomplished. Does that mean JOBS, Economy, healthcare. WELL we know how George Bush handled it.
