Planned Parenthood defunded; lives saved

After Washington failed to defund Planned Parenthood, state legislatures immediately took the battle into their own hands on their own turf.

According to the SBA List State by State Scoreboard, Planned Parenthood has lost over $61 million from 9 states after they cut tax-based funding to the abortion giant. The states include Florida, Indiana, Kansas, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.

In the wake of these defunding efforts, numerous Planned Parenthood clinics have been forced to shutter their windows in several states.

My two cents

Just when I thought that the abortion lobby was an unstoppable freight train, perhaps a way of slowing it is to stop maintaining the rail track it rides on. I don’t imagine too many organisations could take a $61 million funding cut in their stride. And I always think of that satire of Planned Parenthood in South Park where the building sign said ‘Unplanned Parenthood’.
