Medicaid funding of Planned Parenthood

The only Planned Parenthood clinic in Hattiesburg does not perform abortions, and has taken less than $1,000 in Medicaid funding in each of the past five years.

Rep. Chris Smith: For Obama, ‘Everything Is Subordinated to the Abortion Agenda’

Co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life caucus Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) said last Wednesday that, for President Obama, “everything is subordinated to the abortion agenda.” Smith referred to Obama as “the abortion president.”
