Republican state representatives in Ohio slipped an amendment into the
state's substitute budget bill on Tuesday that puts family planning
clinics like Planned Parenthood at the bottom of funding priorities and
blocks them from receiving funding for cancer screenings and HIV and
domestic violence services.

planned parenthood

Defunding Planned Parenthood through Ohio's budget bill is a way for GOP
lawmakers to pass the measure without having to vote on a separate
bill, which would likely cause controversy.

The amendment further prohibits federal funds from the Minority HIV/AIDS
Initiative, the Violence Against Women Act, the Breast and Cervical
Cancer Mortality Prevention Act and the Infertility Prevention Project
from going to Planned Parenthood or any other family planning clinic
that provides abortions.

    Planned Parenthood is a corrupt, politically controlled, politically motivated organiztion operating und the guise of a non-profit organization. I don't feel they should receive any Federal funding. The money should go to non-profit organizations providing the same services who are not motivated by politics. But then again good luck finding one.

    "and blocks them from receiving funding for cancer screenings and HIV and
    domestic violence services.'

    What I have noticed is everytime the Republicans try to block funding for Planned
    Parenthood, which is aimed at limiting their funds for abortions. the Liberals identify it as
    liniting PP's.money for their lesser services like HIV testing, cancer Screenings, and domestic violence services. Why is it that Planned Parenthood always chooses to
    limit these life saving servicrs and not not the life taking service of abortions?

    Is that honest of the Democrats/Planned Parenthood to say they can't provide their
    ser vices like HIV testing, breast exams and helping domestic violence victims and
    continue to still provide their major service which is ABORTIONS?

    One would think they would prioritize and would continue to provide rhese lifesaving services for women. Abortion is legal and Planned Parenthood receives funding from private donations, many from Liberals who actually support abortion; so it is reasonable
    to have them use private donations for abortions instrad of federal grants, which include tax money from many who do not support abortion.

    Again I say, "is that honest"? and therefore are the assumptions presented in this
    poll question honest?

    By law, they aren't able to use government funding towards their abortion services which only represents 3 percent of all the services they provide.

    Every time funding is blocked or cut from Planned Parenthood, it makes it more difficult to provide the costly services they do for women. This isn't just about abortions.

    No pay attention. This time they did block specific funding for the services mentioned. Did you bother to read it?

    he amendment further prohibits federal funds from the Minority HIV/AIDS
    Initiative, the Violence Against Women Act, the Breast and Cervical
    Cancer Mortality Prevention Act and the Infertility Prevention Project
    from going to Planned Parenthood or any other family planning clinic
    that provides abortions.

    Ask yourself is it honest that they cut funding for these things instead of doing what they really want to do which is making abortion illegal. If they want abortion stopped quit being cowards and make it illegal. This is cowardice to allow them to receive money for abortion but not for HIV and Cancer screenings.

    Before you make anymore lame assumptions about the poster of this question. I am strictly pro-life. I am sick of the back door cowardice. They should do what they really want to do which is make abortion illegal, then planned parenthood can continue with other health services.

    "Before you make anymore lame assumptions about the poster of this question"

    That article is not the amendment itself, but is a Liberal's interpretation of the amendmenr.
    Poat the amendment abd I will read it.

    You say You are pro life, and it may amaze you that I AM PROCHOICE.......always have been. I have two adopted children and will forever be grateful that each of their mothers
    were prolife, or at least, they chose not to abort my sons. BUT I would never expect
    a mother to carry a child just so I could be a mother.

    What I expressed was a reaction to the usual tactic Democrats use when Planned
    Parenthood funds are cut, which is to cite that women will lose services like
    cancer screening, etc,. and I stand by my statement.

    "Abortions is their reason to exist."

    -Abortions represent only 3 percent of the total services they provide.

    "The governments didn't fund the Mafia, why shoud we fund Planned Parenthood to commit murder?"

    -By law, government funding cannot be used towards abortion services.

    In 2010, PP reported they did 329,445 abortions. That would be closer to 34~38%. They also reported that the organization generates 38.4% of its clinic revenues from performing abortions.

    Feb 23, 2011 – A new Planned Parenthood report the national abortion business ... of the abortion industry to 27.6 percent of all abortions done annually.

    All funding goes into a money pot. No records are kept on what it is spent on.

    This is disgusting. Do people not understand that abortions are such a small percentage of the services that Planned Parenthood provides? Not everyone can afford or get access to the other valuable services they offer to women. Though I am a male, this gets me upset because my mother battled with breast cancer and other women should be able to receive necessary and free cancer screenings!

    There's some places where that is literally the only place to go and to do such simply because of their beliefs on abortion... wow.

    If someone dies because they couldn't get what they needed from Planed Parenthood, that blood is on your hands, whoever supports this.

    And no, I'm not Pro-Choice or Pro-Life.

    Just another example of how they don't care about women! Every woman in Ohio should write them a letter opposing this amendment. Of course, the bible thumpers won't, which is sad and shows how much work is still needed to educate women about their rights.

    I think the time for writing letters is over. This whole thing is spreading across the country like wildfire. Women should be in the streets marching for their rights and freedoms. We need to let these legislators know that we will not put up with these 'barefoot and pregnant' policies and we are willing to taken action. Sometimes I think I've gone down the rabbit hole. I mean why else would our perception of our country have become so distorted. It's far easier to keep your rights while you still have them but almost impossible to get them back once they've been take away. The time is NOW!

    Pat, PP really isn't that great. They don't offer much besides birth control and abortions. You guys are acting as if PP is saving lives or something! Like as if this place is going to cease to exist and women will be left barefoot and pregnant dependent on men. Taking away funding will only hurt their lobby.
