Planned Parenthood funding in jeopardy
Wednesday, April 18, 2012 - By The Columbus Dispatch

Federal family planning funds for Planned Parenthood would be sharply cut or eliminated under a plan unveiled yesterday by Ohio House Republicans. By implementing a new priority system for the federal dollars, similar to what was enacted in Texas, abortion-rights opponents say the proposal would at least largely defund — if not completely end — this funding stream for Planned Parenthood in Ohio. Under the proposal, local public health departments get the top funding priority, followed by federally qualified community health centers, private primary-care centers and, last, Planned Parenthood and other stand-alone family planning centers.
