GOP foiled as funds flow to Planned Parenthood
By Paige Winfield Cunningham:
Newly empowered Republicans in states across the country are pushing to kill public contracts with Planned Parenthood, only to find their efforts blocked by the Obama administration and federal courts.
In New Hampshire, the administration circumvented officials by awarding a $1 million grant directly to the nation’s largest provider of abortion services after state officials blocked a grant to the organization.
Every federal district court that has ruled so far has sided with Planned Parenthood. That has helped the administration, which has threatened to cut off states’ Medicaid funding if they refuse to work with the organization.
The clashes have accelerated since 2010, when the GOP swept to power in a number of state legislatures that had long been in Democratic hands.
