Ohio House Republicans move to defund Planned Parenthood

Ohio GOP moves to defund PPHouse Republican foes of abortions rights inserted language into Gov. John Kasich's mid-budget review bill that would strip Planned Parenthood of up to $1.7 million in federal funding controlled by the state Department of Health.

The language effectively would block federal funding administrated by the state for 37 family planning centers operated by Planned Parenthood in Ohio, according to the organization. It was one of dozens of amendments to Kasich's sprawling mini-budget added Tuesday by Republicans in the Finance Committee.

The budget bill is on a fast track, with majority-party GOP lawmakers expected to pass the legislation before Memorial Day.

The language added by GOP abortion opponents, which mirrors a separate bill that sits in committee, reprioritizes federal family planning funds in a way that makes Planned Parenthood and other stand-alone family planning providers the lowest priority in getting federal funding.
