House Reverses Obama’s Planned Parenthood Rule

Why taxpayer funding goes to an organization that performs abortions, a practice that is so objectionable to so many people, is not something I understand.

From the Washington Examiner:

The House passed a resolution Thursday re-opening the door for states to block Planned Parenthood from receiving some federal funds.

The measure, which passed 230-188, would reverse a last-minute rule from the Obama administration that said conservative states can’t block the women’s health and abortion provider from receiving family planning dollars under the Title X program.

More than a dozen states have sought to block Title X funding from Planned Parenthood clinics. The funds can’t be used for abortions under federal law, but conservatives say health providers offering abortions shouldn’t receive any federal reimbursements because money is fungible.
