In a surprise announcement, Governor Matt Blunt announced that he was cutting off the remainder of the $27,000 provided to Planned Parenthood of Soutwest Missouri.
“Patients should not have to go to an abortion clinic to access life-saving tests,” Blunt said in a written statement. “Today [Monday] I put an end to taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood in Springfield and Joplin through the Show Me Healthy Women Program. This ensures women may access important preventative care without contributing to abortion providers’ goal of facilitating the destruction of innocent life.”
Bravo, Governor Blunt! May other state governors be as wise!
