Wisconsin: Planned Parenthood Loses Tax Funding

Good news from Wisconsin is being reported by LifeSite:

Planned Parenthood Loses $130K in Tax Funding in Wisconsin

by Steven Ertelt

The Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin abortion business has been cut from a $130,000 program in Wisconsin that contracts with health care providers to provide women with free breast and cervical cancer screenings.

The Wisconsin Department of Health and Services cut out Planned Parenthood from the program, which previously sent the abortion business the fund exchange for providing the services for women. Although the screenings can be obtained at other providers officials with the abortion business complained about the decision to WBAY.

“I’m very worried about the women that we serve, and the actions taken to remove Planned Parenthood from the Well Woman program are really cold-hearted and a huge disservice to the women in our communities,” Well Woman program coordinator Kristen Biese said.

But Governor Scott Walker, who is pro-life, says women can get the same screening help from legitimate medical providers that do not also kill and injure women and children in abortions. [With the help of taxpayers' money.] He said the program is not being eliminated, just modified so abortion centers don’t receive taxpayer funding.

“The program is still in place. The Well Woman, in particular to make sure women have access to exams for cancer and other things, is funding. It’s in place. We’re just not contracting with Planned Parenthood to do that,” Governor Walker said.

    Thanks be to God! Great news. Let’s hope others in a position to make a change will have the courage to follow the leaders in WI such as Gov. Walker.

    Also, I think it’s important that we continue to show that abortion services are not equivilent to women’s health services. Planned UnParenthood should not be able to hide behind the “women’s services” mantle. All we do when we pay for health screenings at PUnP is help them to fund abortions.

  2. God bless Gov. Walker. He’s in a nasty recall battle.

    Now that’s a practical advance. Good job, Gov. Walker.

    Thank God, and God bless Gov. Walker.

    Wisconsin is a very difficult State: there are fanstastic pro-life, strong conservative Catholics and many, many wishy-washy politically correct “Catholics” and many, many more secular humanists, who, as we used to say in Madison, “are waiting to be insulted”. This governor is great and I applaud him, but sadly, everyone else in my little ole’ Midwest and “Wisconsonian” family can’t stand him. God bless him many times over and bless the pro-life movement in Wisconsin.

    I had an unedifying conversation with an elderly friend wearing a “Recall Walker” button, in church in downtown Madison after last Sunday Mass, when I pointed out that he is good on sanctity of life issues. I don’t have strong opinions about Walker’s other policies, but the tone and attitude of the recall effort is very aggressive and ugly and I oppose it.
