The State of Kansas is setting to defund PlannedParenthood.

looks like the governor has signed something that distinguishes full service medical facilities from partial service.

And they seem to have found a way to put PP at the bottom of the list for grants (educated word for money).

This will cause a fury of controversy no doubt.

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback Signs Bill to Permanently De-Fund Planned Parenthood


Kansas Governor Sam Brownback today signed a bill that would ensure that no taxpayer dollars are going to fund the abortion industry.

Kansas Senate Bill 436 would prioritize Title X grants, which are taxpayer-funded, by awarding them to full-service public health clinics and hospitals first. Planned Parenthood, which often receives these grants from various states, would be pushed to the end of the list because it does not provide comprehensive health care and, essentially, defunded.

Good luck with that. Kansas also still has some very active sects of the KKK and Neo Nazis. Seems like they enjoy being in the old days where women and blacks are oppressed.

I bet some other company is waiting to get the business when PP goes away.

Capitalism works in competitive ways (sometimes).

Sometimes it does. It's definitely a possibility. Some new business that has friends in high places.

I guess Kansas has a lot of extra money laying around for lawyers and law suits, because this law most likely defies federal law and WILL, no doubt whatsoever, go to the courts and stall.

It will never happen in Kansas. They're not a state that is going to permit what is in their view for profit execution of babies. Remember the fake PP videos? The whole issue was that they were committing abortion for profit. Imagine of a private company started up and did just that. Kansas is far too conservative to allow that to happen.

How ? Why ? It IS State funded or how else could they change it ? Or , perhaps you didnt read that part ?
Judge Reverses Decision, Rules State Can Strip Planned Parenthood Federal Funding

Ohio , Kansas , just 2 of many. Georgia may follow suit. They are still under investigation here for violations of Federal and State laws.

Kansas is going belly up, Brownback screwed the state's tax revenues for decades to come and this is how they waste everybody's time. More bone-headed American Taliban idiocy.

Did you miss this part, from your link?

In September Waddoups issued a temporary order blocking Herbert’s decision to end the state’s contract with Planned Parenthood. His latest ruling ends the temporary order while Planned Parenthood Association of Utah pursues its lawsuit against the state.

Or, the part about the state dictating "federal" fund distribution?


They are still under investigation here for violations of Federal and State laws.


Investigations/witch hunts that have shown no illegal conduct, so far. And, boy have they been trying!


Brownback said in January that Planned Parenthood should not get any state funding because its “trafficking of baby body parts is antithetical to our belief in human dignity,”


Lies that won't hold up in court.


The agency told Planned Parenthood it could no longer serve as a Medicaid provider because of “noncompliance with applicable state laws” and “unethical or unprofessional conduct.”


More lies that won't hold up in court.

With the passage of the ACA there is absolutely NO NEED for planned parenthood.

You can not have your cake at eat it too.

The entire idea of the ACA.

Giving healthcare access to people that ALREADY had access.

LOL.

Yay....More inbred children and an increase in families on Public Assistance from being born into a world where they aren't wanted and shunned.

Kansas better pray for more tornadoes before they're overrun with unwanted children starving on every corner.

If every state undertook Medicaid expansion then you would be correct however 22 states refused to expand it creating a gap of people who are too poor to purchase health care even with a subsidy, but aren't poor enough to get it provided by the state. Those states are Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Wisconsin, Missouri, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Maine (and one other I'm forgetting).

Well that's stupid, because Title X grants don't fund any abortions at all. They do fund birth control and STD prevention programs though, so essentially what he's doing is guaranteeing an increase in unwanted pregnancies, welfare spending, abortions, HIV, and STD treatment spending (as has been seen in Indiana and probably elsewhere.)

Genius move, if his goal is to harm his state.

I am correct.

Between the EMTLA, and the fact ever state in the union has medicare, and medicaid.

There is NO reason for planned parenthood to exist.

Especially so after the ACA.

Then there is the whole 'free' clinics, and community health centers the poor, and illegals go to.

People sure do make an issue out of healthcare in this country.

For no effing reason other than the fact it's not 'free'.

Yeah. I say some mean stuff now and then don't I?? But you know what's worse??

Manipulating politics and people into having kids they don't want and can't care for while taking away their options and social safety nets at the same time.

Compared to that, nothing I say could possibly cause any damage.

There's still a reason. It's much cheaper to get free birth control through PP than through doctor visits.
