WATCH YOUR BACK IN THE STREETS, NC!
Nothing says “I’m pro-life” like removing funding for health services for low-income people and families; health services that can save lives.
Hmm, yes, this seems like a good idea:
Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina, one of the state’s two Planned Parenthood providers, estimates that it will lose $200,000 as a result of the new budget. Because no state money is used for abortion services, the funding cuts will affect the clinic’s ability to provide affordable birth control, cancer screenings, pap smears and other services for low-income
womenpeople in the state.
“If we aren’t able to figure something out and replace this funding, this will affect the price and availability of services and prescription drugs for patients,” Paige Johnson, a spokesperson for PPCNC, told The Huffington Post. “We won’t be able to provide the walk-in care we currently provide.”
No problems here.
