WI Cuts Planned Parenthood Funds — Judge Rules Against Indiana Law

Even as conservative Governors and state lawmakers target Planned Parenthood’s lucrative abortion franchise for elimination, activist judges are working diligently to make sure the group’s deadly business continues. On June 26, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed a state budget that cuts a $3 billion shortfall (without raising taxes) by, among other things, cutting funding to Planned Parenthood. But on the same day Wisconsin became the fourth state to defund the “family planning” organization (following the lead of Kansas, Indiana, and North Carolina), a federal judge temporarily blocked the Indiana de-funding law as unconstitutional.

Predictably, Planned Parenthood expressed its outrage over the funding cuts in Wisconsin, insisting that they will hurt low-income individuals who have no health insurance by denying them such services as cancer screenings, STD testing and treatment, and birth control.
