Obama Usurps State’s Rights to Grant Contract to Planned Parenthood

    Pro-Life Group Slams Administration for Propping Up Political Ally

Washington, D.C. – Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, released the following statement today in response to a decision by the Department of Health and Human Services to award more than $1 million in federal funds to Planned Parenthood clinics in New Hampshire.

“In June, the state of New Hampshire exercised its right to decline renewal of a $1.8 million contract with Planned Parenthood of New England, which operates clinics – including those where abortions are performed – in the state. It is well within the purview of the New Hampshire state government to decide not to continue to subsidize America’s abortion giant with taxpayer dollars. Instead of honoring the decision of New Hampshire’s Executive Council, Obama has once again allowed his unwavering support for the largest provider of abortions in our country to take precedent. The people of New Hampshire deserve to have the representatives they elected make the decisions they were elected to make without fear of President Obama usurping those decisions to curry favor with his political ally – Planned Parenthood.”

In July, SBA List held a rally in Concord, New Hampshire to show support for the Council’s vote, and urged them to stay the course. Including New Hampshire, eight states have successfully defunded Planned Parenthood to the tune of nearly $60.4 million. PLEASE READ MORE

We deserve to party. We deserve choices. YES, to all of the above, but at some point, we also have to grasp that our behaviors, and decisions have CONSEQUENCES! If you put your hand into the flame, it WILL get burned, like it or not. SO … if you do not want to get burned, avoid putting your hand – or anything else – into the flame!Our civilization has chosen to remain juveniles … children. Remember how badly you wanted to grown up when you were a kid? Well … DO IT! Just sayin …
