Planned Funding State Funding Ohio

Planned Parenthood has received notice that it is losing all state funding from Ohio after a lengthy battle.

In 2016, Ohio passed legislation forbidding the state from funding entities that provide “‘performs or promotes’ non-therapeutic abortions”, and in 2019 a federal appeals court upheld this legislation.

Since the legislation was upheld, on Thursday Planned Parenthood received official notice that it would lose all state funding in Ohio.

Cleveland.com reports that there are four clinics in Ohio which provide abortion to women, and notes that Planned Parenthood maintains that being funded by federal and state government is fine because they do not use that funding for the express purpose of providing abortion. Many have a hard time understanding how Planned Parenthood can depend on these funds to exist, yet claim the funding does not go to abortions.

The abortion clinic has come under increasing scrutiny in recent months. Planned Parenthood recently unveiled a plan to expand abortion access to 40 weeks into pregnancy in all 50 states, and is suing in Idaho to hire unlicensed individuals to perform more abortions. While they maintain that abortions are but a small amount of what they do, a book released last year claims they privately admit they are “in the business of providing abortions.”

More recently, the organization released a troubling chat bot for teens with information about how to get birth control, what constitutes virginity, and how to come out of the closet.

This development comes as Planned Parenthood experienced other setbacks at the hands of pro-life legislators and activists.

A month ago, a federal court ruled that Planned Parenthood would not be allowed to perform abortions in the state of Missouri, as state law does not allow doctors without the ability to admit patients to a hospital to abort children. As in Ohio, Planned Parenthood tried to fight this legislation.

Also in February, Planned Parenthood had $60 million stripped from its funding by President Donald J. Trump. Under his administration, the Department of Health and Human Services modified their regulations to prevent Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics from receiving Title X funding.

Courageous Bishops Criticize “Devout Catholics” Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi Over Abortion Stances

God bless these bishops.

Published

The mainstream media never tires of highlighting Joe Biden’s cradle Catholicism. “Joe Biden is a devout Catholic!” they exclaim. “Joe Biden was spotted attending Mass on Sunday!” they report. “Joe Biden’s Catholic faith is deeply personal and all about healing!” they declare.

It’s all part of a careful attempt to demonstrate that one can be committed to both the Catholic faith and the tenets of 21st century liberal progressivism.

But many Catholics beg to differ. We think certain tenets of 21st century liberal progressivism—and thus much of the current Democratic Party platform—are fundamentally incompatible with Church teaching, namely that abortion falls under the purview of “reproductive rights,” that same-sex marriage has the same moral legitimacy as heterosexual marriage, and that your gender identity need not conform to your biological sex, to name a few.

And some courageous Catholic priests and bishops have stuck out their necks in order to remind the faithful of this. For example, a recent statement released by the president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of Los Angeles, reads in part that “our new President has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils and threaten human life and dignity, most seriously in the areas of abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender. Of deep concern is the liberty of the Church and the freedom of believers to live according to their consciences.”

Archbishop Gomez says it’s important to bring this to everyone’s attention because “the nation’s bishops are given the duty of proclaiming the Gospel in all its truth and power, in season and out of season, even when that teaching is inconvenient or when the Gospel’s truths run contrary to the directions of the wider society and culture.”

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco also recently released a statement in response to Nancy Pelosi, who said that many pro-life voters’ support for Donald Trump “gives me great grief as a Catholic” and accused them of being “willing to sell the whole democracy down the river for that one issue.”

To begin with the obvious: Nancy Pelosi does not speak for the Catholic Church. She speaks as a high-level important government leader, and as a private citizen. And on the question of the equal dignity of human life in the womb, she also speaks in direct contradiction to a fundamental human right that Catholic teaching has consistently championed for 2,000 years,” the first paragraph of the archbishop’s statement reads.

The penultimate paragraph: “I myself will not presume to know what was in the minds of Catholic voters when they voted for the Presidential candidate of their choice, no matter who their preferred candidate was. There are many issues of very grave moral consequence that Catholics must weigh in good conscience when they vote. But one thing is clear: No Catholic in good conscience can favor abortion. ‘Right to choose’ is a smokescreen for perpetuating an entire industry that profits from one of the most heinous evils imaginable. Our land is soaked with the blood of the innocent, and it must stop.”

Nancy Pelosi is notorious for pulling the “Catholic card,” probably even more so than Joe Biden. In 2012 she even met with then Pope Benedict XVI, who no doubt reminded her that human life begins at conception and that all Catholics have an obligation to believe and uphold that truth. Nine years later, however, and her stance on abortion has not changed a bit.

It is clear that one cannot be a devout Catholic and hold the liberal progressive stance on abortion. God bless these bishops for standing up and being willing to correct our leaders who are normally immune from any mainstream criticism.

And if you’re Christian, Catholic or non-Catholic, pray for the souls of people like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. They probably need it. Pray also for the souls of the untold millions of infants who have been murdered by the heinous act of abortion.
