Kansas Governor Cuts Off Planned Parenthood
(TRUNEWS) Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has joined with several other states in cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood.
The governor, who has a history of protecting life, gave a state address
Tuesday where he said he ordered the state health secretary to ensure that no taxpayer money is given to the group, which has come under fire in recent months for trafficking the body parts of babies.
“No longer will we send the money of hard-working Kansans to fund an industry that disrespects life and violates the moral conscience of our people,” Brownback said in a statement.
In 2011 Brownback signed a bill to stop most of the funding.
The abortion provider is threatening a challenge in court.
Some courts have blocked attempts at defunding by states, which include Utah, Louisiana and Alabama.
