Obama Administration Strips Kansas of Federal ‘Family Planning’ Funding

Kansas loses approximately $370,000 annually in federal Title X “family planning” funding that the Planned Parenthood affiliates in Wichita and Hays – and another unaffiliated facility in Dodge City – had been receiving. The Obama administration acted after Kansas passed a bill that directed Title X “family planning” funds to public health departments and hospitals, shifting it away from Planned Parenthood.

‘Evil,’ ‘Indefensible,’ ‘Final Nail in Coffin,’ ‘Stomach Churning,’ Say Pro-Life House Member, Groups on Planned Parenthood Baby Parts for Sale

“The fact that Planned Parenthood performs upwards of 327,000 abortions a year is heartbreaking and barbaric enough on its own,” Rep. Diane Black said in a statement to Breitbart News. “The news that its employees engaged in the selling of aborted babies’ body parts is almost too much to bear and shows that Planned Parenthood’s disregard for innocent human life was even worse than we imagined.”

The California State Senate will vote on a bill that would mandate all University of California and California State University campus health centers to stock drugs for medication abortion.

House Republicans Aim To Strip Planned Parenthood’s Funding

The House Appropriations Committee’s draft of its fiscal year 2016 Labor, Health and Human Services (LHHS) funding bill “eliminates all funding for the controversial Family Planning Program, saving taxpayers nearly $300 million.” The bill would also substantially cut so-called “comprehensive teen pregnancy prevention programs,” but double funding for abstinence-centered or Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) programs.
