Kansas wants PP defundedEditorial board members of the Kansas McClatchy newspapers that have fought hard to advance Planned Parenthood interests are furious that the upcoming budget reconciliation indicates the abortion giant will lose state funding this year.

3 months ago, the Governor’s proposed budget was introduced, including the rerouting of Title X federal tax-funded family planning dollars to state clinics that provide family medical services. It reflected the Huelskamp/ Kinzer budget instruction which had been line-item vetoed by abortion-supporter, Gov. Mark Parkinson in 2009 and 2010.

What the Kansas City and Wichita pro-abortion editorialists decried as ‘promoting a lie‘ or ‘pure politics’ was the official comment from the governor’s spokesperson that “Gov. Brownback, along with the overwhelming majority of Kansans, opposes taxpayer subsidy of abortions.”

But it is true!   While not directly permitted to cover abortions, Title X funds are underwriting part of Planned Parenthood’s overhead and expenses, and at least part of the salary of any abortionist doing Title X services. As former Texas Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson (more…)

We counted 38 (both presenters & attendees) at today's PP rally/march in Topeka

Planned Parenthood rallied their troops today in Topeka to fight state and federal defunding bans.  But even the 72-degree temperature couldn’t lure more than 38 people, including abortion industry lobbyists.

The desperation is palpable.  Unitarian minister Tom Belote warned the group that women will die of cancer if Planned Parenthood loses tax money.

That was an obvious reference to breast cancer, since the group waved pink signs, referencing the pink-ribbon Komen anti-breast cancer campaign.  However Planned Parenthood does NOT provide mammograms at ANY facility.

There are 1,200 Federally Qualified Health Centers that provide the same care PP does – plus mammograms – along with providing other health care services for the entire family.  These are the kinds of legitimate community health clinics in Kansas that legislators want to fund, especially in these tough economic times.

On Feb. 8, Rep. Lance Kinzer (R-Olathe) offered such a ‘defund Planned Parenthood’ amendment to the current 2010/11 budget and it passed the House 91-26. Gov. Brownback’s proposed budget also defunds Planned Parenthood, which nationally made $1.2 billion in profits last year.

The Planned Parenthood national business report recently released shows the embattled agency did more abortions in 2009 than it has done in any prior year.  The 2009 figures show it provided fewer pregnant women with non-abortion services:

  • 97.6 % of pregnant women who went to Planned Parenthood were sold abortions,
  • with a 25 % drop in prenatal care clients,
  • and a whopping 59 % decline in adoption referrals.

Despite its protestations that (more…)

Abby Johnson quit PP

The selection of Abby Johnson, former clinic director for Planned Parenthood, to speak at Kansans for Life’s July 14 Kansas City regional breakfast couldn’t be more timely.

This week, Planned Parenthood has not explained their national accounting discrepancy of $1.6 billion dollars.  A recent report from the Government Accountability Office revealed Planned Parenthood spent $657 million in federal funds between 2002 and 2008, while another report showed they took in more than $2 billion in grants and programs during that time.

Scandals don’t seem to deter Planned Parenthood supporters. The nation’s largest  abortion business has failed to explain over 2 years of regularly revealed incidents of medical misinformation and illegal counseling in various states’ clinics.  Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson has twice strongly funded Planned Parenthood, despite the unresolved 107 criminal charges awaiting PP’s Overland Park facility.

In 2009 and 2010, Parkinson vetoed the same Huelskamp/ Kinzer budget provision that would have bumped Planned Parenthood from consuming (more…)
