The Washington Examiner reports that Wisconsin follows at least nine other states which have also cut funding to Planned Parenthood after pro-life advocate David Daleiden released a series of undercover videos for Center For Medical Progress, showing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating over the sale of fetal body parts obtained through abortions.

The two new Wisconsin laws restrict Planned Parenthood clinics from receiving federal Title X money.
Planned Parenthood operates 22 clinics in Wisconsin, three of which provide abortions, according the Planned Parenthood website. The abortion provider estimated that the funding cuts will cost it $7.5 million a year.
Walker signed the bills at Life’s Connection, a clinic in Waukesha that offers options other than abortion for women dealing with unwanted pregnancies.
“Today, we signed two bills into law that prioritize women’s health while improving government and its services to the citizens of Wisconsin,” Walker said.
Wisconsin has previously made other funding cuts to Planned Parenthood, which the group says forced it to close five rural clinics that provided contraceptive services but not abortions.

    this is Koch/walker population control of the poor. This will shorten the lives of millions of women. Praise is Lord God and savior David Koch

    • Ray says:

      “control the poor” ? Most of the abortions are the poor as clinics target the minorities and the poor. Margaret Sanger would be so proud and thanks for focusing on the wrong thing instead of the murder of future humans.
