Something is rotten in the state of Kansas.
The governor said in January he intended to defund PP because of the video scandal last year…but did he not check his facts to see that the accusers were wrong about illegal activities and the “selling” of fetal tissue?" Or does he not care about the facts?
Planned Parenthood uses most of its money to provide needed, preventive health care. As per the article the OP posted:
The state money comes through Medicaid, which provides health care for low-income and disabled Kansans. Some of the services it covers include annual exams, birth control, preventative care and breast exams. Medicaid does not cover abortions.
He is only hurting people by doing this. Women who want abortions can just go somewhere else but now he’s made it more difficult for low-income people in the area to get health care.
Gov. Sam Brownback’s shameful attack on Planned Parenthood
His spokesperson says he is defunding them for "noncompliance with laws, administrative regulations or with providing medical provider information; noncompliance with provider agreements; unethical or unprofessional conduct; and “other good cause.”
But we have yet to see the details of the above.
If he wants to close down a place just because they perform abortions, then he will have to close down all the hospitals in his state, too.
