Utah Becomes 5th State to De-Fund Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Babies

Utah will follow Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama and New Hampshire in stripping Planned Parenthood of their funding. Many more are sure to follow as more and more damning videos are released by The Center for Medical Progress. No matter how Planned Parenthood spins their butchery, the baby’s out of the bag so-to-speak and they are destined to lose about 40% of their funding. It will happen even as Barack Obama is threatening these states and their funding. He is falsely claiming they are breaking federal law by not funding the abortion giant. Friday, Stem Express, who has been caught up in the videos as well, cut ties with Planned Parenthood to avoid further fallout. Too late for that guys. Way too late. Utah just made a stand for life and many other states are being pressured to do the same. Time to end the American Fetal Holocaust.

Defund Planned Parenthood

From LifeNews.com:

Utah has become the 5th state to de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business in the wake ofsix videos exposing how the abortion giant sells the body parts of aborted babies for research. The state follows Arkansas, Alabama and Louisiana, which are revoking a contract with Planned Parenthood using state Medicaid dollars, and New Hampshire, which zapped $650,000 in state taxpayer funding.

According to news reports, Utah is saying it will no longer allow itself to be used by the federal government to funnel funds to the abortion company. The decision essentially revokes well over $200,000 in taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood.

As the Salt Lake Tribune reports:

Gov. Gary Herbert has ordered all state agencies to stop funneling federal funds to the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah.

The federal government provides grants to Planned Parenthood, which are distributed through the Utah Department of Health. Utah law bars any organization from using state funds for abortions, and that prohibition extends to Planned Parenthood’s federal grants, Herbert said in a statement Friday afternoon.

The move came in response to the release of secretly recorded videos by an anti-abortion group showing Planned Parenthood officials in Houston describing how they provide fetal tissue from abortions for medical research.

“The allegations against Planned Parenthood are deeply troubling,” Herbert said.

““If they want to engage with the federal government directly and get their money, I think that’s fine,” the governor said.

The governor said there is no reason to fund the abortion business because other organizations provide the same non-abortion services as Planned Parenthood.

While the Planned Parenthood in Utah claims it is not selling aborted babies or their body parts as is the in case in other states, it stood by the decision of other Planned Parenthood abortion facilities to do so. Karrie Galloway, President of the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah, said: “While Planned Parenthood Association of Utah does not participate in fetal tissue donation programs, we stand by Planned Parenthood affiliates around the country who do.”

Planned Parenthood conducts 300,000+ abortions a year. That’s monstrous. Congress has expanded its investigation into the Planned Parenthood abortion business and Rand Paul is calling for a total de-funding of the baby body parts mill. De-funding isn’t enough in the end. They need to be shut down and everyone connected to them should be prosecuted for genocide of the unborn. The states are not backing down in the face of threats from Obama either. You cannot mandate death and murder… every state in the union should take this stance. It’s the moral and right thing to do. The latest video on Planned Parenthood includes an eyewitness narrative of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, describing tissue procurement workers’ coordination with abortion providers, the pressure placed on patients, and disregard for patient consent. The mask has been ripped away from an evil that has haunted America for decades. So far, 12 states have responded to the Planned Parenthood videos and launched investigations into their abortion and organ harvesting business including South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana. The district attorney in Houston, Texas is also investigating after the Houston-based Planned Parenthood abortion facility was caught selling aborted babies.
