Nobody performs more abortions in America than Planned Parenthood.
And many of their operations are funded with taxpayer dollars.
But now they are freaking out after a judge issued an order that will destroy them.
The radical Left doesn’t just want abortion to be legal; they want you to pay for it as well.
Throughout the country they are fighting laws that will defund Planned Parenthood, which receives massive government funding.
But they just received horrible news in Ohio, where a federal appeals Court ruled to allow the state to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood because they perform abortions.
The Judge presiding over the Court is allowing the law to stand because the law doesn’t violate a woman’s right to obtain an abortion, but only says that the state has no obligation to pay for their abortion.
As reported by Breitbart:
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.”
The Ohio law “does not condition a woman’s access to any of these public health programs on refusing to obtain an abortion,” Sutton added. “It makes these programs available to every woman, whether she seeks an abortion or not. Nor, on this record, has there been any showing that the Ohio law will limit the number of clinics that offer abortions in the state.”
This is horrible news to the radical Left, and signals that problems for Planned Parenthood are far from over.
Ohio is not a state that Planned Parenthood has historically had many problems in.
The state’s “Republican” former Governor, John Kasich even vetoed a heartbeat bill to ban abortion once the baby’s heartbeat is detected.
Do you think Planned Parenthood deserves taxpayer funding?
