Arkansas Conservatives plan to cut ALL funding to Planned Parenthood !!!
.

Not content with enacting the most restrictive abortion law in the country, Arkansas Republicans plan to press the legislative advantage their party hasn’t enjoyed since Reconstruction by making it even more difficult for women to get abortions in the state.

The GOP-controlled Legislature on Wednesday overrode Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe’s veto of a bill banning nearly all abortions beginning in the 12th week of pregnancy, when a fetus’ heartbeat can typically be detected through an abdominal ultrasound. That law wouldn’t take effect until 90 days after the legislative session ends in a month or so, but the Legislature last week overrode a veto of a near-ban on abortions starting in the 20th week. That law took effect immediately.

State Sen. Jason Rapert, who was behind the 12-week ban, now wants to cut all public funding to Planned Parenthood. And the state’s top anti-abortion advocacy group is urging lawmakers to ban providers from remotely administering the abortion pill via a video hookup — a practice they’ve derided as “webcam abortions.”


The proposal would cut off money Planned Parenthood receives from the state for non-abortion programs, including federal grants disbursed by the state to the group for education programs in Little Rock schools on sexually transmitted diseases.

“I’m glad for them to do education and do those sorts of things, but I do not like them utilizing funds, indirectly even, to support their efforts with abortion in our state,” Rapert, a Republican from Conway, said Thursday.

Planned Parenthood officials vowed to fight the legislation.
