New Hampshire defunds Planned Parenthood because it doesn’t want to pay for your “party”

“I am opposed to providing condoms to someone. If you want to have a party, have a party, but don’t ask me to pay for it.”

That’s New Hampshire executive councilor Raymond Wieczorek explaining why he wouldn’t support funding Planned Parenthood to offer contraception to low-income women.

After losing the $1.8 million state contract last week, six Planned Parenthood clinics in the state have been forced to stop providing contraception. One center has, so far, turned away 20-30 women seeking low-cost birth control each day. The clinic’s manager said some of the women say they will stop taking birth control altogether because they don’t have private insurance and can’t afford the higher price at pharmacies.

The fact that anti-choice advocates can ...

Kansas Update: One Planned Parenthood clinic to stay open

It looks like the Kansas Health Department has changed its tune.

Late Thursday, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced it will be giving a license to one Planned Parenthood clinic that provides abortions, reports AP. Kate Sheppard confirmed it with PP reps:

Planned Parenthood just announced that the health department has, in fact, decided to grant it a license to continue operating. The PP clinic in Overland Park will remain open. “Notwithstanding that the regulations are burdensome and unnecessary, the findings of the inspection indicate what we have known and said throughout this process: Planned Parenthood operates with the highest standards of patient care and has rigorous safety procedures ...

The Onion outs Planned Parenthood’s new pet project.

“Although we’ve traditionally dedicated 97 percent of our resources to other important services such as contraception distribution, cancer screening, and STD testing, this new complex allows us to devote our full attention to what has always been our true passion: abortion,” said [Cecile] Richards.

Awesome. How many bets some antis will try to take it literally?

Indiana becomes first state to defund Planned Parenthood

Yesterday, Indiana became the first state to vote to defund Planned Parenthood. If signed into law, the bill would also make Indiana the 5th state to jump on the unscientific “fetal pain” train and ban abortion after 20 weeks.

As we learned from the federal battle over Planned Parenthood’s funding, it’s quite a challenge to bolster your “pro-life” political score by targeting Planned Parenthood without revealing your complete and utter hypocrisy. For every point you score with folks who believe the organization is neutering American men, trying to make straight women more like lesbians, and literally run by Satan’s “demon spirits,” you lose a few with those who understand that family planning prevents abortions.

And the ...
