Alabama becomes third state to defund Planned Parenthood


Thursday, August 06, 2015

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox regarding Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley’s decision Thursday to defund Planned Parenthood, which officially ends all state funding of the abortion giant: (#DefundPP)

“Not one more penny should go to Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar abortion dealer caught on camera negotiating the sale of hearts, lungs, and livers from aborted babies. Governor Bentley should therefore be commended for ending the use of state taxpayer dollars for such barbarism. Our tax dollars instead should fund local public health clinics, which outnumber Planned Parenthood locations more than 10 to 1 and are not tainted by constant scandals and misdeeds. America doesn’t need Planned Parenthood.”

Louisiana and New Hampshire have also defunded Planned Parenthood in recent days in light of the videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
