According to Life News, Kansas legally transferred family planning money away from Planned Parenthood and to clinics that don’t perform illegal abortions:

In 2011, pro-life Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill signed into law a bill that would shift funding away from the Planned Parenthood abortion business and stops abortion funding in health insurance programs. The Kansas Senate passed the measure on a 28-10 vote and the state House followed suit with an 86-30 vote.

The measure has the state budget directing over $300,000  in Title 10 money to local full-service health clinics instead of Planed Parenthood and it places $300,000 into the Stan Clark grant-matched fund for pregnancy support and adoption counseling.

The funding cuts eventually resulted in the Planned Parenthood abortion business closing one of its centers.

The vote does not limit women’s access to health care, but it does cut into Planned Parenthood’s ability to cut checks to Democrat candidates.

A federal court upheld Kansas’ decision to spend the money on a different family planning organization.

But Obama struck back anyway.

“Kansas has lost the federal planning money it stripped from Planned Parenthood and another unaffiliated clinic since winning its legal fight to defund the organization,” The Associated Press reports.

“The federal government reduced its Title X funding to the state by about the $370,000 annually in Title X money that two Planned Parenthood facilities in Wichita and Hays and an unaffiliated clinic in Dodge City had been receiving,” the AP details.

In early August, Senate Democrats have killed a bill that would have expanded women’s access to contraception because it would have cut into the finances of Planned Parenthood, which spent $25 million on political campaigns in 2012.

The bill by Iowa Senator Joni Ernst would have taken the over $500 million in taxpayers funds that currently go to Planned Parenthood and instead offered it to community health centers.

The move would have dramatically expanded women’s access to contraception.  Community health centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics 13 to 1, and they offer a broader range of services.

But since the bill took taxpayer funds away from the politically active abortion corporation, Democrats killed the effort to expand contraception access.

“The Sunlight Foundation found that Planned Parenthood’s advocacy arm and super-PAC spent about $5 million and $7 million, respectively, to oppose Republicans and support Democrats in the general election,” reports The Hill. “In the end, the two groups saw returns on investment of about 98 and 99 percent, according to Sunlight.”

For Democrats, campaign contributions are more important than health funds for women.
