The Obama administration’s decision this month to award $3.1 million in federal funds to Planned Parenthood affiliates and other family planning groups in New Jersey comes as no surprise.
Despite the $15 trillion national debt, the administration seems willing to keep borrowing to support the nation’s largest abortion provider.
And this isn’t the first time the Obama administration has stepped in to ensure that taxpayer dollars continue to flow to its favorite abortion provider even at the expense of women’s health care.
Last summer the Obama administration threatened to pull $4.3 billion in Medicaid funding from Indiana after the state’s legislature voted to prohibit all health care contracts with and grants to any “entity,” including Planned Parenthood, that performs abortions or operates a facility where abortions are performed.
Just months later, the Obama administration flagrantly disregarded New Hampshire’s decision to cancel a $1.8 million contract with Planned Parenthood in favor of contracting with health care facilities that offer women full-service care. Ignoring the will of the residents of New Hampshire, the administration directly awarded a $1 million contract to Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.
