Planned Butcherhood Has NO RIGHT To Tax Dollars

This one was a big one.

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday, 11–6, to allow Ohio to end taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood because the organization performs abortions.

Judge Jeffrey Sutton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit wrote Ohio’s law to defund the abortion vendor does “not violate a woman’s right to obtain an abortion,” that the state “has no obligation to pay for a woman’s abortion,” and that the law doesn’t impose “undue burden” on a woman’s access to an abortion.

“Private organizations do not have a constitutional right to obtain governmental funding to support their activities,” the judge continued. “The State also may choose not to subsidize constitutionally protected activities.”...
Since most of the marbles are on this one, it will go to SCOTUS.

For years I have been praying for the defunding of tax-payer dollars going to PP. Hopefully, this *will* go the SCOTUS and finally get it done.

Not holding my breath, but still hoping and praying.
