North Carolina has joined Indiana and Kansas in defunding the baby-killing mill called Planned Parenthood – an oxymoron of a name, because anyone who kills his/her offspring is no parent.
In November 2009, after seeing an ultrasound of a baby in the womb, a former director of a Planned Parenthood branch in Bryan, Texas, had an awakening of conscience. Abby Johnson admitted what had been, until then, the stuff of rumor:
- Planned Parenthood has a monthly abortion quota or goal;
- Planned Parenthood has a financial incentive to perform as many abortions as possible.
Urban Christian News reports, June 15, 2011, that Republican state representatives in North Carolina have voted to override Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue’s veto of the state budget Wednesday morning, ensuring that a provision to strip all federal and state money from Planned Parenthood will take effect on July 1.
As in Indiana and Kansas, the North Carolina vote is prompted by Planned Parenthood’s provision of abortions. The vote will result in Planned Parenthood North Carolina (PPNC) losing $434,000 a year in state and federal funds. Women who want an abortion at PPNC will now have to pay out of their own pocket.
NC’s conservative lawmakers have another bill that would not just defund PPNC but restrict access to abortions.
