Death-Star Planned Parenthood Loses WI Money

It's not the biggest allocation, but it's significant.

The Joint Committee on Finance (JFC) adopted a budget motion today that would redirect a portion of state and federal family planning funds away from Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, the state’s largest abortion provider. Passed on a 12-4 party-line vote, the motion prohibits state and federal Title V Maternal and Child Health family planning funds from going to organizations or their affiliates that perform or refer for abortions.

Planned Parenthood is the state’s largest abortion provider and in 2010 it collected more than $18 million in federal and state family planning funds, mostly from the Title XIX Medicaid program. Yet chemical and surgical abortions in the state continue to rise. PPWI performed 5,439 abortions in 2009, a 56% increase from 2008, when PPWI was responsible for 3,053 abortions. The Committee’s action today effectively prevents PPWI from receiving close to $1 million annually in state and federal Title V fund... --Matt Sande, Pro-Life Wisconsin

Good on the Pubbies!

It's only a 5% loss in their yearly public funding. I don't know how we can call it anything but a token victory.

And Walker wanted to cut all "family planning" public funding. Why are GOPs undercutting him?

Because Alberta Darling wants that spending. She's ex-Planned Parenthood and running a recall defense campaign.

See, spending taxpayer dollars for re-electing Alberta Darling is very, very, important.

All the more amazing that we elected a governor of the quality of the one in office now.

maybe it is time for conservatives to start supporting the recall Darling campaign.
