New Hampshire House Votes to Divert Tax Funds Away from Planned ParenthoodKathleen Gilbert

The New Hampshire House of Representatives on Wednesday morning voted to put Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers at the bottom of the list of eligible recipients of state family planning funds, further frustrating efforts by the Obama administration to keep the local abortion branch afloat.
Lawmakers passed HB 228 by a margin of 207 to 147, prioritizing state-controlled family planning dollars away from abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood. The funding is now prioritized to public and private entities that provide comprehensive health care to women and do not perform abortions.
The defunding language was inserted by Rep. Warren Groen (R-Rochester) as an amendment to the bill that now heads to the State Senate.
