Obama Defies New Hampshire, Re-Funds Planned Parenthood

The Obama administration has defied a decision by the government of New Hampshire to defund abortion provider Planned Parenthood, announcing that it had “awarded family planning contracts to Planned Parenthood of Northern New England despite the state Executive Council’s vote against the group,” reported the Nashua Telegraph. The state newspaper claimed the administration was forced “to act quickly because the Executive Council had left 16,000 families without services that range from birth control to exams for breast or cervical cancer.”

In refunding the abortion giant the Obama administration declared that there was “an urgent need to reinstate services with an experienced provider that is familiar with the provision of Title X family planning services and applicable laws, regulations, and administrative requirements, and has a history of successfully providing services in these areas of the state.”

As reported by Baptist Press News, the state’s Republican-controlled Executive Council “voted 3-2 in June to prevent Planned Parenthood of Northern New England’s six New Hampshire clinics from receiving $1.8 million in federal and state family planning funds.
