After New Hampshire decided to cut $1.8 Million in taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood in their state, Kathleen Sebelius responded by giving $1 Million in taxpayer dollars directly to the abortion provider to make up some of the difference.
Planned Parenthood had attempted to lobby the N.H. members who made the decision to cut the funding and ask them to restore it, but got nowhere (Michael New has more background here).
So Planned Parenthood was forced to call in their Washington, DC protectors.
Because, as we know, when it comes to funding the political-abortion machine which is Planned Parenthood, Kathleen Sebelius and President Obama are always there to sign the check.
John Hayward at Human Events writes about what Obama and Sebelius are telling pro-life Americans with this decision:
“Americans will fund Planned Parenthood. No, you do not have any say in the matter. Your freedom, moral sensibilities, and rights of self-determination end where Planned Parenthood’s needs begin.”
… of course, that’s only if we take this move lying down.
The Susan B. Anthony list, for instance, has launched a petition where people can tell Kathleen Sebelius and President Obama to stop interfering with New Hampshire’s right to defund Planned Parenthood. New Hampshire’s state motto is “Live Free or Die.” Americans have the right to seek freedom from the death caused by abortion.
Planned Parenthood’s desperate need to ask their friends in the federal government to come to their rescue in states like New Hampshire (and Indiana, and others) shows how weakened they have become. As we continue to work to defund Planned Parenthood state-by-state, we must also never let up on our efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the federal level as well.
Not one dime for abortion, anywhere, anymore!
