Stop Tax Funding to Abortion Providers
Some Planned Parenthood defunding was established in Ohio law in 2006 for Title X family planning funds distributed in Ohio.
Current budget amendments:
With thanks due to Ohio Right to Life, some amendments to the proposed Ohio budget are intended to further defund this abortion provider.
These amendments prioritize limited tax funds in other entitlement programs, to be distributed in the following order: local health departments, community health centers, community action agencies, private primary care providers, then Planned Parenthood.
The Ohio House of Representatives has approved these amendments to the budget, which now requires vote in the Ohio Senate.
Planned Parenthood continues to receive much tax funding via Medicaid reimbursements, and will receive even more if Ohio participates in the federal Medicaid expansion program.
The Ohio Senate will be voting soon on Ohio’s participation in Medicaid expansion–also part of the state budget and narrowly removed by the House.
If the Senate, under pressure from Governor Kasich, adds Medicaid expansion back in, the budget will return to the House for concurrence, and Medicaid expansion could likely remain.
Contact Senate President Faber and state senators to:
- Keep Medicaid expansion out of the Ohio budget, to at least curtail this abortion giant’s steady revenue stream, and
- Keep current budget amendments to further defund Planned Parenthood
