3. Here is ;more...State lawmakers renew push to de-fund Planned Parenthood

Republican state legislative leaders will renew efforts to strip family-planning money from Planned Parenthood, restarting hearings next week on a bill to redirect tax dollars to community health clinics.

House Health and Aging Committee Chairman Lynn Wachtmann, R-Napoleon, scheduled a possible vote to recommend passage of House Bill 298 for Wednesday during the General Assembly’s lame-duck session.

Backed by Ohio Right to Life and other anti-abortion advocates, the bill stalled last spring over concern that it also would divert funding from hospitals, which was not the intent of supporters. The legislation would create a priority system for awarding federal family-planning funds, putting Planned Parenthood at the bottom of the list and likely cutting off about $1.7 million it uses for birth control and preventative care.
