NH Executive Council votes to defund Planned Parenthood

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox regarding the New Hampshire Executive Council’s decision Wednesday to defund Planned Parenthood, which officially ends all state funding of the abortion giant: (#DefundPP)

“The people of New Hampshire should not be forced to fund a billion-dollar corporation that was caught on camera negotiating the sale of baby body parts. The New Hampshire Executive Council should therefore be commended for ending the use of state taxpayer dollars for such barbarism. No one should miss the horrific reality of what Planned Parenthood does behind closed doors, as revealed in the recently released undercover videos. Our tax dollars should fund local public health clinics, not corporate welfare for Planned Parenthood. We join the call of Cornerstone Action and others for New Hampshire’s attorney general to thoroughly investigate Planned Parenthood.”

The following quote may be attributed to Cornerstone Action Executive Director Bryan McCormack:

“We commend the bravery of these councilors. We must call attention to the widespread practices seen in the Center for Medical Progress videos. New Hampshire deserves the truth, and that can only be provided with a thorough investigation of Planned Parenthood. The Executive Council’s vote is a huge step forward for the culture of life in New Hampshire.”
