Thumbs up Tennessee Completely Defunds Planned Parenthood

I was so glad to see this, and I hope this movement spreads. Although I'm pro-choice, I don't believe in taxpayer-funded abortions or any type of taxpayer-funded healthcare that takes money from some and gives it to others. Nowhere does the Constitution authorize the federal government to do this, and I don't believe in state-sponsored redistribution of wealth programs, either.

Quote:
Tennessee Republican Gov. Bill Haslam signed two new unprecedented laws this week, both of which completely cut off all funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics in the state, according to Life Site.

As pro-life advocates in Tennessee are cheering the major decision, Planned Parenthood and its band of crazies are calling Haslam a racist.
Typical leftist name calling. There's nothing racist about stopping a program that caters to all races.

Quote:
One law directs the state to request a waiver from the federal government to defund all abortion clinics from the taxpayer-funded TennCare, the state Medicaid program. The measure was passed last month.

The second law, which was also passed last month, summarizes policy signed into law by Haslam in 2011, which ensures health clinics receive Title X family planning funds before it’s allocated to Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities.

Up until last month, Shelby County was the final county in Tennessee where Planned Parenthood was still receiving state taxpayer dollars. The city was holding out as long as possible but eventually caved after realizing liberal groups were out of options.


Quote:
After it was announced that Shelby County agreed to support the bill, Haslam announced that a roughly $400,000 contract would be rewarded to Christ Community Health Services instead of Planned Parenthood.
I don't agree with this, either.

Quote:
Life Site reports this is the first time in 35 years that Planned Parenthood will not receive the contract from a state in the U.S.
Good! This was long overdue.

Quote:
Planned Parenthood called the move “racist” and a “result of state and local political pandering.” The group also said it’s exploring a number of legal options to sue the state to overturn the measure.

Spoiler: there’s likely nothing Planned Parenthood can do about it. The bill was passed in all 94 counties across the state and then signed by the governor. https://conservativedailypost.com/te...ed-parenthood/
Yay, Tennessee!

The irony since Planned Parenthood was founded by major racist Margaret Sanger...

This should never happen, for a variety of reasons. First, government needs to stay out of the health care business. Second, government needs to stay out of religion. Going from one extreme to the other doesn't cut it. Third, that 400 K needs to be returned to its rightful owners, the people, not simply redirected.

Government will never willingly give money they already have. That's a given, and why I'm not in favor of any new programs that require funding of any sort.

They probably did that because planned parenthood supporters often argue that planned parenthood provide much needed services that are not abortions to poor women. So giving the money to facilities that don't do elective abortions should alleviate their concerns. But that won't stop planned parenthood supporters from suing.Its like if you give a crack head family member money for groceries and tell them they can't use that money for drugs. By paying for the crack heads groceries you essentially given the crack head more drug money, because now the crack head doesn't have to spend his own money on food.

That's hilarious, a group founded by Margret Sanger is calling someone else racist.

Good for Tennessee.

Yes, something like 90 million. Although I'm not a supporter of PP, OR Tax payer funded abortions. I think it was probably a good thing that 90 million UNWANTED babies did not get born. I think this country would have been in big trouble if we had 90 million more people whose parents didn't want them.

Simple solution. If a parent wants to abort then let the baby be born and then abort the parent.

1st, many millions of "unwanted" babies HAVE been born and their mothers (and fathers) have changed their thoughts and considered it the greatest gift...

Second, there's this thing called "adoption", where future parents are willing to accept the responsibility and "want"...
