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.
President Donald Trump Pledges to “Fully Defund” Planned Parenthood If Reelected
Trump has governed as the most pro-life President in history.
President Trump is pledging to fully defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood during his tentative second term in office, making a pledge in a letter to the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition. In the letter, the President also touts the pro-life accomplishments of his administration.
The President breaks down how he’s “proudly governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.”
The President touts his administration’s appointment of hundreds of pro-life judges, partial defunding of the abortion industry including Planned Parenthood, the barring of federal medical research facilities from using materials obtained from the bodies of aborted children, and the defense of personal conscience rights of physicians, medical personnel, and other professionals. Congressional Democrats have largely blocked a full defunding of Planned Parenthood, which continues to perform more abortions than any other organization in the country.
The President also touts his support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions.
Joe Biden, who is largely running for President on the basis of his supposedly impeccable and virtuous character, has supported total and unlimited legalization of abortion throughout his entire political career. The nominal Catholic went so far as to quote Pope St. John Paul II in a recent campaign ad, a nod to Catholic voters, all while silently disregarding his commitment to abortion on demand.
