Wisconsin is set to become the fourth state to defund Planned Parenthood.
Republican Gov. Scott Walker is expected to sign off on a state budget that would eliminate federal and state funding to nine of the state’s 25 Planned Parenthood centers by the end of the month.
Wisconsin will join Indiana, Kansas and North Carolina in passing similar legislation. Each cut funding to the health care and abortion provider earlier this year.
The state’s Legislature passed the $66 billion budget on June 16. That includes a $1 million cut to Planned Parenthood. All the Republicans and one independant voted in favor of the plan while all the Democrats opposed it.
