Va. House subcommittee OKs bill to defund Planned Parenthood

Va. House subcommittee OKs bill to defund Planned Parenthood

"We know for a fact that at least two exclusively because of these regulations, but there obviously have been.we've gone down from 21 clinics to 14", said Gail Deady with the ACLU of Virginia.

Supporters of the bill said it would ensure that taxpayer money is spent on "fully comprehensive health clinics" to provide services to women.

The proposed measures would, Daines believe, protect federal funding for health services for women, without limiting options.

The legislation is sponsored by Republican U.S. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa.

Based on model legislation drafted by a national anti-abortion organization, this bill would prohibit the Virginia Department of Health from granting funds or entering into contracts with certain health care providers that perform abortion.

"Please note women will not go without exams or care or screenings", she said. "Every woman in Virginia deserves access to safe, high-quality health care at a family planning clinic of her choice", Scholl said.

"One would think a corporation that constantly touts its care for women, uses "parenthood" in its name, and has ultrasound machines would want to ensure healthy pregnancies by allowing women to access ultrasounds to monitor the development of their babies", she said.

The bill will then move to the Lords for debate from February 20, with the government hoping for their approval by March 7. Despite this, the second reading of the bill is likely to be passed with a big majority on Wednesday.

A bill that would remove all state funding for Planned Parenthood cleared another legislative hurdle Tuesday at the State Capitol. On this basis, the majority of 80 percent voters were against of cut down the federal funding while a minority of 12 percent of voters supported the idea. There was also an increase in childbirths among women receiving Medicaid who'd previously received contraception from Planned Parenthood clinics.

A staffer in St. Louis, Missouri said an ultrasound for prenatal care is "not something we offer". "More than half of Planned Parenthood's health centers are in rural or medically underserved areas".

A concern of limited access is the meat of Obama's executive order. Julian Garrett of Warren County, "it's perfectly obvious that frees up other money to pay for abortion".

Some states, the document asserts, have used tiered approaches to disturbed Title X funds, allocating money by preferences that don't involve quality of care.

Of the 145,303 comments received about 91-percent were in favor of the rule.

I further direct the Secretary of State to take all necessary actions, to the extent permitted by law, to ensure that USA taxpayer dollars do not fund organizations or programs that support or participate in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.
