Good news out of New Hampshire! After taxpayer funding was revoked back in July, the New Hampshire health department has decided against giving back $1.8 million tax dollars to the abortion industry. This which could play a significant role in shutting down Planned Parenthood clinics state-wide.
The abortion business has been engaging in a statewide lobbying campaign to get the Executive Council to reconsider the vote and, now, the Concord Monitor newspaper indicates the state health commissioner says he has no plans to reinstate the tax financing.
“The taxpayers have made it very clear that they do not want one cent going towards the funding of abortions, either directly or indirectly,” said [Kevin Smith, director of Cornerstone Action]. “Not to mention, it is obscene how much of PPNNE’s current revenue of $18 million is earmarked for things like overhead costs, salaries, marketing, and public policy advocacy. New Hampshire women deserve better than a “non-profit” that would deny women health services because they value administrative costs and political power above patient care.”
