Kansas cuts Planned Parenthood funding

WICHITA, KAN., May 17 (CNA) - The Kansas legislature has passed a multi-faceted pro-life bill that cuts Title X funds from Planned Parenthood and excludes automatic abortion coverage from private health care plans and the health insurance exchanges required by federal law to begin in 2014. HB 2075 requires that over $300,000 in Title X federal money will go to local full-service health clinics instead of Planned Parenthood. It will also put $300,000 into a grant-matched fund for pregnancy maintenance and adoption counseling. The provision is the second Planned Parenthood funding cut to pass a state legislature this year.

Canadian performer David MacDonald, 50, gave his testimony at a gathering of Silent No More Awareness following Canada's March for Life, where several other men and women also described their abortion trauma. Once a powerful singer, MacDonald's voice at the podium sometimes barely rose above a squeak - his vocal cords destroyed, he says, because of the stress he suffered following the abortion of his girlfriend's baby when MacDonald was 21.
