Iowa Gov. Branstad wants review of state subsidies after signing budget funding Planned Parenthood

In the wake of two undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted babies’ body parts, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad has announced a comprehensive review to ensure no tax dollars are going to the state’s abortion giant, Life News reports.

Professing to be “appalled” by the video in which PP medical services director Deborah Nucatola discusses how their abortionists are “very good at” “crush[ing] below” and above internal organs to “get it all intact,” the statement from Branstad’s office stresses that Planned Parenthood “is never reimbursed” for abortion in Iowa.

Nevertheless, he has ordered the state health department “to thoroughly review the funding the Legislature appropriated for women’s health and the Family Planning Block Grant to ensure it does not and will not ever fund abortions or operations related to abortion procedures.”

Last week, Personhood Iowa posted a petition on calling on Branstad to go from defunding abortion to a complete defunding of Planned Parenthood in the state, as well as “an immediate investigation into the organization’s practices.” The petition notes that the budget signed by the governor on July 2 included subsidies for the abortion giant.

So far, seven states and the US Congress have launched investigations into Planned Parenthood’s activities.
