Ohio Zeroes Out Funding for Planned Parenthood – Includes 5 million to Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Ohio Pregancy center

Back on April 1st, we reported on a court ruling that affirmed Ohio’s right to deny funding to “pregnancy centers” that fund abortion. State Budget writers went to work to ensure actual ‘family planning’ centers were adequately funded.

The state Senate passed a bill last week that includes $5 million for over 200 crisis pregnancy centers that primarily serve low-income women. The proposal increasing the funding by five times comes after a federal appeals court upheld an Ohio law that pulled funding from Planned Parenthood, which received $1.5 million in annual state funds

The baby killers are not happy.

Jamie Miracle at NARAL Pro Choice Ohio told WOSU the pro-life centers are “fake women’s health centers that provide incomplete care at best and lies and manipulation at worst.”

Because it’s not health care if killing something is not an option?

NARAL is just pissed off, as is Planned Parenthood because their local Ohio laundromats can’t convert taxpayer support for abortion providers into political activism or campaign contributions.

Boo-Hoo.
