Arizona Senate Close to Passing a Bill that Would Defund Planned Parenthood
A few weeks ago, I wrote about Arizona’s attempt to defund Planned Parenthood:
The Arizona Senate Committee on Healthcare and Medical Liability Reform approved HB 2800 which strips state funding from any group (like Planned Parenthood) that performs abortion even though existing state law and the fucking Hyde Amendment already prohibit the use of state/federal funds for abortion.
Well, on April 12, the Arizona Senate gave preliminary approval to the bill. The Senate is expected to pass it, and Jan Brewer is expected to sign it. As a result, Arizona will go the way of both New Hampshire and Texas, and will be dropped from the Medicaid program.
For a manufactured fake war, the war on women sure does feel very real, don’t you think?
