COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio has become the next state to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, as its Republican governor has signed a bill into law stripping all state funding and some federal funding from organizations that perform abortions.
H.B. 294 passed the House 59 to 32 last Wednesday after the bill cleared the Senate in January 22-8. It is expected to result in the redistribution of $1.3 million dollars to women’s health organizations that do not offer abortions, with the exceptions of rape, incest and the life of the mother. $250,000 is to be earmarked for infant mortality prevention.
Gov. John Kasich, also a presidential candidate, privately signed the bill into law on Sunday.
