BREAKING: North Carolina Becomes 3rd State to Defund Planned Parenthood

North Carolina became the 3rd state to defund Planned Parenthood when its legislature overrode the Governor’s veto of the the proposed state budget today, which included a provision barring any funding from going to Planned Parenthood. From HuffPo, who don’t seem too happy about the news:

Republican state representatives in North Carolina voted to override Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue’s veto of the state budget Wednesday morning, ensuring that a provision to strip all federal and state money from Planned Parenthood will take effect on July 1. North Carolina is now the third state, after Indiana and Kansas, to defund the family planning provider because it also provides abortions.

The defunding is expected to strip $434,000 from Planned Parenthood. It sends an especially strong message that the North Carolina legislature passed the defunding by overriding the Governor’s veto. Let’s see it happen everywhere!

    Lord, how about a little help here in PA???

  • Mantis47354

    I had a sneaky feeling that if my state of Indiana passed this ruling, that other states would follow along!!  Hopefully, more will pick it up too.

    Question if Planned Parenthood’s total budget was just for numbers sake $100,000 and they used $25,000 for abortions, $75,000 for the rest and they raised $90,000 from fundraisers etc.  They would have to choose between cutting back on abortions or the rest.  Now the government gave them $10,000.  Couldn’t they shift more of the $90,000 to abortions and say they are using the $10,000 for “the rest”.  That means the government did contribute to abortions?

     Do they love”AMERICA”What if your spouse asked
    you if you loved him or her? Your answer was “yes, but”:

    I want to
    change the way you do your hair;
    I want to change what your religious
    beliefs are;
    I want to change what you wear;
    I want to change what
    kind of car you drive;
    I want to change how you educate your
    children;
    I want to change the expression on your face;
    I want you
    to change your complexion;
    I want you to change your occupation;
    I
    want to change your attitude about abortion;
    I want to change your
    attitude about gay marriage;
    . . . and I want to change dozens
    of other things about you. I want
    to remake you into the spouse
    I want you to be…but, yes, I do love you.

    The question “just
    what was it that you loved about me again?” may come up at some point. Or “did
    you just love me because you found me to be vulnerable and you thought you could
    change everything about me and control me?”
    During the
    Presidential Primaries and the runup to the General Election, there was often
    the discussion of which side loves the USA. Sometimes it would be said that both
    sides love America. That they both love America but one side has a different
    idea about what America should be. When one party spoke about change, many
    people thought the change being spoken of was fixing what was broken and working
    together.

    Ameritianity submits that it would appear that there is a vast
    difference in how people and organizations view “Love of America”. At
    Ameritianity:

    We love the foundation upon which America was build. We
    don’t want it ignored or destroyed.
    We love our Constitution. We don’t
    want it trashed, avoided, or circumvented.
    We love the economic system
    that has made the USA great. We aren’t Socialists or Marxists.
    We don’t
    believe in attacking gays, but we don’t want to be forced to condone what we see
    as wrong.
    We believe marriage is between one woman and one man. We don’t
    want definitions changed.
    We believe in our legal system and don’t
    support certain groups having their own. Like Sharia Law.
    We believe our
    nation was founded on Judeo-Christian Principles. Look at the inscriptions on
    our buildings.
    We believe that God has blessed America in the past, and
    we continue to ask God to bless America.
    We support and appreciate those
    who serve and have served to keep America, and our allies, free.
    We
    believe in protecting America from invasion by illegal actors who don’t respect
    our laws & soverignty.
    We believe that America must remain strong for
    ourselves and other freedom loving people.
    We believe that Mr. Obama has
    intentionally misled Americans about his past, his beliefs, and his goals and
    objectives for America in order to be elected President.
    We believe that,
    based on current actions, statements of intent, and appearant direction and
    goals, Mr. Obama does not share the vision for America shared by our Founders
    and the vast majority of legal American Citizens today.

    No, we do not
    believe that Mr. Obama and many of the Liberal Democratic leaders in Washington
    love our America, our Constitution, Individualism, Freedom, Moral Absolutes, our
    Bill of Rights, Competition, America’s unique position in and responsibility
    toward our world. We question whether or not they really believe God can and has
    blessed America.

      Very well written. We need to teach our children Godly values and that will change  generations. It’s the liberal teaching of our families that has put this world in the state it is in. We need to take back what God intended us to have, who he wants us to be and what he wants us to do.

  • Jovin69

    so your saying a womans right is not to be considered in the case of wanting an abortion or not?

    • Rebecca

      My mother did not have the ‘right’ to abort me.  Both mother and child are equally valuable.  A doctor treating a pregnant woman is treating two patients.  (Unless she’s having twins, then the doctor is treating three!).

    • Wolf_lover88

      That’s between a woman and her God. Not a bunch of hypocritical politicians. 

    • Isa241

      Not when her “choice” means killing another living human.

  • Jovin69

    all you left or right wing religious types need to read the bible it states that a person is alive when they are infused with the blood of life, which doesn’t happen until about 1-2 months after conception so an abortion before that is not murder, it basic biology and bible study

    • Anonymous

      Care to give some Book, Chapter, and verse(s) for your statement??  I’m not a scholar but I do read and study the Bible so I’m always open to broaden my understanding of God’s Word.

    • heathkit

      Strengthen your statement with the scripture reference please.

    • http://www.facebook.com/konakoka Scott Tadsen

      So when does it happen? day 31, 32, 33? If you believed in God and he sat down next to you could you actually look at him directly and say that you thought that life was not created until a month or two old? or how about having God in the abortion room with you? If it is not a life then that should not be a problem right?

  • guest

    Problem with this is now people will be doing black market abortions which are much more unsafe. 

  • F. Reo

    Everyone is so focused on abortions, but how about the other stuff that Planned Parenthood does? Such as cheaper birth control for the youth and students? Not all of them have lenient parents (or funds) that will get them MUCH NEEDED birth control. They can be just as effective at helping prevent pregnancies just as much as “killing babies”

    • Cal0y83

      Abortion is so widespread because contraceptives fail…or rather, people who use them are likely to be inconsistent of their use of them.  Contraceptives are a band-aide solution and don’t address the deeper cultural and behavioral reasons.  Abortionists count on that.

    • Wolf_lover88

      There are health clinic’s and school programs to take care of birth control measures for the students and youth. Killing babies is not birth control. It’s murder.

    • Goolia

      Not to mention that neither birth control nor abortion would be necessary if ABSTINENCE were advocated and practiced among our younger generations.  Our fast-food, get-everything-we-want-when-we-want-it generation needs a reality check to understand and ACCEPT the consequences that come from our actions… and we need to take RESPONSIBILITY for the choices we make. 

      • Rr

        Abortions have been around for a while. Don’t blame the “younger, fast-food, get-everything-we-want-when-we-want-it” generation. They are merely walking down a path that earlier generations have paved for them. Those same earlier generations are obviously not teaching the younger generations to stay off this path. If you are hellbent on making the younger generation learn the HARD WAY by having them pregnant to show them the CONSEQUENCES, then you are punishing an innocent child because the mother couldn’t/didn’t learn responsibility. My birth mother was not taught about consequences or responsibility. Her mother was a drug addict and basically left her to fend for herself. A certain “Uncle” (male friend of her mother, not family relative) raped her and she was forced to survive in a dark world full of drugs and human trafficking. When my mom’s cries for help did not seem to reach her mom, she asked for a practical “band-aid” (as Cal0y83 referred to it) to prevent from getting pregnant.. her mother laughed at her. Several “Uncles” later, I was conceived. Instead of having an abortion, she gave birth to me but she was so ashamed that she left me in the hospital. So before you tell me MY generation needs a reality check… look really hard at YOURS.

        I do not advocate abortions, but I believe in the ability of Planned Parenthood to prevent pregnancies for those that need help. Yes, there are school programs and health clinics, but Planned Parenthood is a well known (and legitimate) organization. If a student/youth, is embarrassed at their predicament, they know to go there for help without having to put themselves out there without their “dirty laundry”, and now that option is gone.

    Yahooooo!!!!! A shift has taken place…things are changing!  Out of darkness and into the LIGHT!!!  Praise the Lord for all of the post abortive women speaking out, and for Allan Parker and Operation Outcry!!! PTL!!!

  • Robertl_foster27

    This is a wonderful thing for North Carolina.  I thank the Great God of the Bible, and the House of Representatives.

  • J.J.

    If someone wants an abortion, they will just go to another state.  It is a very sad thing for NC, because Planned Parenthood offers so much more services than abortion.  I have not heard of people getting abortions on a sliding fee scale, but other services could be done that way at Planned Parenthood.  This is a sad for for citizens of NC, who really depend of their services.

  • Kalbaird

    NC has courageous legislators who defied the governor!  This is a giant step for the unborn of NC. I believe the angels are rejoicing and God is smiling…

  • Melcarol

    Good going NC all 50 states need to do this.

  • Russ

    Praise God!

    Way to go.  Proud to be a Tarheel!  I’m very glad to know that my tax dollars are not going to support abortion either directly or indirectly.

  • Keith Hardwick

    Mitt Romney invested in a company that made millions of dollars disposing of aborted babies. He is an abortion profiteer! No one can say that Obama ever made a dime off abortions, so it should be clear who pro-life people should vote for – Obama!
