Planned Parenthood funding
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday blocked an Ohio law that cut funding to 28 Planned Parenthood clinics, holding that conditions it imposed that denied funds to abortion providers were unconstitutional. The legislation stripped funding that Planned Parenthood received for non-abortion services including programs for mothers’ and infants’ health, HIV counseling and testing, and sex education. Planned Parenthood offers abortions in some of its Ohio clinics, but not all of them. According to court papers, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and Southwest Ohio said they stood to lose nearly $1.5 million in funding annually if the law took effect. The ruling likely will impact a similar action taken by the Tennessee legislature recently which cut funding for Planned Parenthood in Tennessee because it offers abortions, even though state funding is not used for abortions. Ohio officials said they are reviewing the ruling to determine whether to appeal to the US Supreme Court.
