Ohio Gov. John Kasich signs bill to cut funding to Planned Parenthood in Ohio
The bill is intended to block Planned Parenthood from receiving funding for services it provides in health clinics around the state, although the new law would have no impact on abortion services.
The bill strips state and some federal funding from health clinics that perform and promote "nontherapeutic abortions," including Planned Parenthood facilities.
I have no idea what a "nontherapeutic abortions" is supposed to mean but let's face it, this is yet another move that will jeopardize the fate of other vital women's health programs. The $1.3 million in state grants that Planned Parenthood is slated to lose was allocated toward HIV testing, cancer screenings and programs that help prevent domestic violence and infant mortality. This entire thing was fueled by the (now shown to be totally fabricated) secretly-recorded videos released last summer that purported to show Planned Parenthood employees in other states selling aborted fetuses and fetal parts. Except they didn't and were heavily edited.
