Wisconsin Strips $7.5 Million From Abortion Giant Planned Parenthood

PPMADISON, Wisc. — The Republican governor of Wisconsin signed two bills into law this week that strip the abortion giant Planned Parenthood of $7.5 million and redirect aid toward uncontroversial women’s health organizations.

Gov. Scott Walker held an official signing ceremony on Thursday at Life’s Connection in Waukesha, a non-profit organization that provides alternatives to abortion, where S.B. 237 and S.B. 238 received their final approval.

“Today, we signed two bills into law that prioritize women’s health while improving government and its services to the citizens of Wisconsin,” the Republican governor said in a statement. “We want to make sure as taxpayers, whether it’s state funds or federal funds that come through the state of Wisconsin, that they’re used in the way that’s responsible and reasonable.”

S.B. 237 diverts federal Title X funding from organizations that offer abortion services, meaning that approximately $3.5 million dollars will be stripped from Planned Parenthood. S.B. 238 places a limit on how much family planning groups can be reimbursed by Medicaid for prescriptions, which is estimated to cost Planned Parenthood $4 million.

SB 237 was approved by the Assembly last year and the Senate in January. SB 328 was approved by the state Senate in January and passed the state Assembly last week.

While the bills do not specifically mention Planned Parenthood, author Sen. Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, acknowledged to reporters that the legislation will affect the organization.

“This is a consistent stance with where I have always been, where many others in this body have always been, and that is, we are going to protect life,” he told the Cap Times. “I believe that that begins at conception, and I believe that one of the cornerstones of the Declaration of Independence and what our Constitution is drafted around is the protection of life.”

Pro-life and pro-family groups applauded the move.

“Wisconsin taxpayers shouldn’t be forced into this immoral partnership with Planned Parenthood, especially when better, low-cost community health care providers serve women and families far more comprehensively and outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities in Wisconsin 17 to 1,” said Casey Mattox of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).

But Planned Parenthood viewed the legislation as a means to end abortion.

“The move was the latest in a long line of attacks by the governor and the Republican-controlled state legislature on the health of Wisconsin women and families,” Planned Parenthood said in a statement.

The organization also threatened to file suit.

“The law is directed just at Planned Parenthood. It’s to cut our funding so we can’t provide services,” Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin Director of government relations Nicole Safar told Newsday. “Legal action is certainly on the table. The law singles out Planned Parenthood.”

Some, however, state that the bills do not go far enough as they do not result in a total defunding of the abortion giant.

    Scott Walker is very religious. He preys all week long and prays on sunday to his Lord God and savior David Koch.. Walker/Koch has passed every type of population control he can. End clean air act. End heathcare for 10`s of thousands now more healthcare with planned parent hood. They say not educating people is pure child abuse and harms the child for life and there persuit of happiness a right in civilized places. We know planned parenthood saves lives. God see`s threw this type of ???? He has saved a special place down below for him

  • disqusucks

    Abortion is only a fraction of the health services that planned parenthood performs. What about cancer screening and STD testing for low income people? This is a horrible bill that will end up hurting people (women) in the long run. So sad for the people of Wisconsin.

    • Scott Walker

      your post is incorrect it will not just hurt it will KILL people

    • Amos Moses

      How many breast cancer centers does PP operate and how many do they screen each year?

      ZERO…………………

      The Federal Drug Administration’s list, updated weekly, of certified mammography facilities does not list any Planned Parenthood clinics. Some Planned Parenthood affiliates host free mammography mobile vans for low-income and uninsured women.

      Despite the ongoing emphasis on Planned Parenthood’s mammogram referrals, this service does not reflect the core clients of the organization — certainly not clients in the reproductive age or have the highest rate of first-time abortions. Mammograms are recommended once a year for women 40 to 49, and every other year for women 50 to 74 years. Referrals are less commonly made for women under 40.

      • Scott Walker

        No clinic does that . They have trucks that come around and do that. I know 12 years old that know that. They have the mammograms there ever so often as needed. God knows what your doing and saying. Life is short enjoy. Honest Christians know better. Praise your Lord and savior David Koch and this population control. Kill the poor

        • Josey

          I am not rich in worldly goods by no means but I can go to my primary doctor if I need to get my needs met and Americans are the most giving ppl on the earth, so many donations given to cancer, diabetes, children’s issues, etc. where even the poor can get help because of the generosity of those who donate and it won’t cost those families a dime that need that help. And taking the money used for killing babies and giving it to the organizations who offer real medical help is so much more beneficial to women and their families. You are a de- populationist and troll spouting garbage, no one on this site is taking to heart your godless rants so move on.

          • Scott Walker

            That is great but many poor people are truly poor and need planned parent hood. Like students etc with zero money. Do not compare your self to poor in many places you have no clue. I wok with this daily. It just flabbergases me how many people like you really have no Clue. Your just a troll the world knows better

Moore has another movie out about how 10 other poor countries help the people unlike the Fake Christians like Walker and his pure evil followers. Thank God there are no republicans in Heaven

      • Josey

        you are a troll and a nut for the money is going to other women’s health organizations who don’t murder little babies. There are plenty of places for women to go for their health needs and the money given to those places will make health care for women even better. Your head isn’t on straight!

        • Scott Walker

          A troll is a fake Christian who hates people. Who harms women. The fact this KILLS women makes you one sick sick puppy. How many others have you KILLED

          • Scott Walker

            I just want you to know. We are all entitled to are opinion and I will respect your just Please respect mine. I do not really believe your not a Good Christian by your post. I just know it takes a lot to change people`s minds when propaganda is in all news. They say the number of deaths from loss of healthcare , but on booth sides I believe none of what I hear and little of what I see. What I do know is it is all about the cash to the state legislatures. The State of Wisconsin has provided $750,000 in loans — and nearly $2 million more in tax credits for investors — to benefit a Madison biotech firm using tissue derived from aborted fetuses, practices that are being closely scrutinized by conservative lawmakers and GOP Gov. Scott Walker.

            In the case of FluGen Inc. and potentially other biotech companies in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation — created by Walker — is subsidizing work that could be criminalized under a new ban being considered by lawmakers and the governor.

            There’s an apparent paradox in state officials’ approach to biotechnology, a key sector for Wisconsin’s economy, said Lisa Johnson, who formerly worked on economic development for the state.

            “In a sense, there is this contradiction because they’re valuing it in one respect but not in another,” said Johnson, chief executive officer of BioForward, the bioscience industry trade group in Wisconsin. “The state has invested a ton in (biotechnology). They have financial commitments to this sector.”

            Republican lawmakers have said that their final legislation will include an exemption that should allow FluGen to keep using longstanding fetal tissue to pursue its goal of a more effective flu vaccine. But as currently written, the bill would make it a felony to use tissue from an aborted fetus. There Lord and God and savior is David Koch. How is that. You Pray for me and I will do the same. I know we both have a Great God one in the same. I will not push I just want you to see where I get my opinion. Thank You

          • Chrissy Vee

            Thank you for this post, your respect, and the info. It’s good to know all sides of a story. And I do understand the fact that people think differently and are passionate about different things. I truly appreciate your humble approach. I pray God’s will be done and I will definitely pray for you too. Peace and Blessings.

            Thank you I hope you see those guys are not like us with the fear of God. I just know nothing good has come from Walker living in Wisconsin. We have a school to prison pipe line. So Do anything to expose walker and his followers. Yesterday I saw a thing about imagrants,,I argued all day about it. The fact is they say our children are to lazy to work. I hire works now and then, I need some one for two days to lay some sod at my home. I went to home depo and got 4 workers. The first half of the first day they acted like they could not understand me and were lazy. At noon I said your all done. Instantly they all spoke English. Also they did not have enough sense to lay sod. I also hire like I said using local kids. They work ten times harder and have better work ethics. I argued support our youth. every right winger cut on our kids

            Fact #1: Every abortion kills an innocent human being.

            Every new life begins at conception. This is an irrefutable fact of biology. It is true for animals and true for humans. When considered alongside the law of biogenesis – that every species reproduces after its own kind – we can draw only one conclusion in regard to abortion: every single abortion ends the life of an innocent human being.

            Fact #2: Every human being is a person.

            Personhood is properly defined by membership in the human species, not by stage of development within that species. A living being’s designation to a species is determined not by the stage of development but by the sum total of its biological characteristics.

            Fact #3: Beginning at conception, every pregnancy involves two or more bodies.

            No matter how you spin it, women don’t have four arms and four legs when they’re pregnant. Those extra appendages belong to the tiny human being(s) living inside of them. At no point in pregnancy is the developing embryo or fetus simply a part of the mother’s body.

            Fact #4: It is just, reasonable, and necessary for society to outlaw certain choices.

            Any civilized society restricts the individual’s freedom to choose whenever that choice would harm an innocent person. Therefore, it is impossible to justify abortion by simply arguing that women should be “free to choose.”

            Fact #5: The right to not be killed supersedes the right to not be pregnant.

            The comparison between a baby’s rights and a mother’s rights is unequal. What is at stake in abortion is the mother’s lifestyle, as opposed to the baby’s life. Therefore, it is reasonable for society to expect an adult to live temporarily with an inconvenience if the only alternative is killing a child.

            Fact #6: Poverty, rape, disability, or “unwantedness” do not morally justify abortion.

            There are all sorts of circumstances that people point to as justification for their support of abortion. Since none of these circumstances are sufficient to justify the killing of human beings after birth, they’re not sufficient to justify the killing of human beings before birth.

            Fact #7: The differences between embryos and adults are differences of degree not of kind.

            Like toddler and adolescent, the terms “embryo” and “fetus” do not refer to nonhumans but to humans at particular stages of development. Human beings inside the womb are smaller, less developed, and more dependent than human beings outside the womb. These are differences of degree, not differences of kind. We can all point to other people who are bigger, stronger, smarter, or less dependent than we are, but that doesn’t make our life any less valuable or any less deserving of protection.

            Fact #8: Less than 1% of all abortions are performed to save the life of the mother.

            It is an extremely rare case when abortion is required to save the mother’s life. Of course, when two lives are threatened and only one can be saved, doctors must always save that life. However, abortion for the mother’s life and abortion for the mother’s health are usually not the same issue. Since every abortion kills an innocent human being, it is morally abhorrent to use the rare cases when abortion is necessary to save the life of the mother as justification for the millions of on demand “convenience” abortions.

            Fact #9: To be only “personally pro-life” is to not be pro-life at all.

            If abortion doesn’t kill children, why would someone be opposed to it? If it does kill children, why would someone defend another’s right to do it? Being personally against abortion but favoring another’s right to abortion is self-contradictory and morally baffling.

            Fact #10: If there is uncertainty about when human life begins, the benefit of the doubt should go to preserving life.

            It is a scientific fact that life begins at conception. However, if one personally has even a shred of uncertainty about when life begins, then they are still morally obligated to err on the side of life and NOT have an abortion. Why? Because to make a mistake about the exact time when life begins is to kill an innocent human being.

            Fact #11: Abortion is more dangerous than childbirth.

            Not only does every abortion kill an innocent human being in the womb; but abortion is also more dangerous to the mother than if she were to give birth to the child. The evidence overwhelmingly proves that the morbidity and mortality rates of legal abortion are several times higher than that for carrying a pregnancy to term.

            Fact #12: Prior to abortion’s legalization, 90% of abortions were done by doctors, not by “coat hangers in back alleys.”

            Some justify abortion on the claim that if it is outlawed, women will abort anyway and may die in the process. There are 3 problems with this hypothesis. First, it doesn’t address the ethics of abortion. Second, laws against abortion would deter most women from having one. Third, there is no evidence that illegal abortions are more dangerous than legal abortions. Of course, even if the “coat hanger” argument was true (it’s not), then it’s still morally ridiculous to legalize procedures that kill innocent babies just to make the killing procedures less dangerous to the mother.

            Fact #13: The 8 week+ unborn baby feels real physical pain during an abortion.

            Yes, every abortion kills an innocent human being. Even more alarming is the fact that beginning at the 8th week of development, an unborn baby that is aborted feels pain during the abortion. The baby feels both psychological and real physical, organic pain. Let that sink in. Of course, whether or not abortion is a painful experience to the unborn child being aborted, the child is left no less dead as a result. In talking about the question of fetal pain, we must remember that it ultimately has no bearing on the morality of abortion.

            Fact #14: Abortion is condemnable for the same reasons that slavery and genocide are.

            Networks of killing centers across the globe are eliminating “unwanted, unborn” children at a staggering rate. Were the context not abortion, the world would be outraged. Call it what you want, when an innocent group of human beings is targeted and exterminated by the millions, that is an injustice on par with any of history’s most egregious atrocities. At the end of the day, if the unborn are people (and they are), then abortion is not only comparable to past crimes against humanity but is also, by sheer volume, the greatest holocaust of all.

            Fact #15: Abortion is not a “women’s only” issue.

            Abortion affects both men and women. Beyond that, abortion is a human issue, not a gender issue. If abortion kills innocent human life (it does), then everyone, male and female, should stand against it. One doesn’t need to be a young girl to take a position against the sex trafficking of young girls, and one doesn’t need to be a woman to take a position against abortion.

            Fact #16: Every legal surgical abortion stops a beating heart and terminates measurable brain waves.

            What do we call it when a person no longer has a heartbeat or brain waves? Death. It’s a scientific fact that life begins at conception, but even more obvious; what should we call it when there is a heartbeat and there are brain waves? Life. It is an indisputable fact that each and every legal surgical abortion in America today stops a beating heart and stops already measurable brain waves.

            Fact #17: The right to not be killed supersedes the right to privacy.

            Some defend abortion by claiming that they have a right to privacy. Whether they have an abortion or not is between them and their doctor. Everyone else should stay out of their business. Of course, if abortion kills an innocent human being (it does), then killing done in private is no more acceptable than killing done in public; and the encouragement or assistance of a doctor does not change the nature, consequences, or morality of abortion.

            Fact #18: Abortion disproportionally targets minority babies.

            Whatever the intent of the abortion industry may be, by functional standards, abortion is a racist institution. In the United States, black children are aborted at 5 times the rate of white children and Hispanic children don’t fare much better. Abortion is the leading cause of death among black Americans. We can debate the racial intent of Planned Parenthood past and present, but we cannot debate the results. Abortion is by no means an equal opportunity killer.

            Fact #19: Abortion has become a form of gendercide, shrinking the global female population at an alarming rate.

            On top of the fact that every abortion kills an innocent human being, abortion has also become the driving force in eliminating females around the globe. Estimates put the global gender gap somewhere between 100 and 200 million people. Abortion has become the most effective means of sexism ever devised, ridding the world of multitudes of unwanted females.

            Fact #20: Laws concerning abortion have significantly influenced whether women choose to have abortions.

            Some will concede that every abortion kills an innocent human being. They will also concede that society has a right to outlaw choices that harm innocent human beings. But even after conceding those points, some still do not favor more stringent abortion laws because they think that they don’t really work – there would still be too many abortions. Historical data, common morality, and basic legal theory prove this line of thinking to be false.

            A Physician Tells Why Abortion Is Murder

            by Pastor E. L. Bynum

            Note by Pastor Bynum: This article is, in my opinion, one of the best on the subject of abortion. It is written by a practicing physician who daily seeks to preserve life. The forceful straightforward style of writing gets your attention and emphasizes the tragedy going on in every state in our union with the blessings of federal law and U.S. Supreme Court sanction.

            I am a physician. I have been trained to protect and preserve life. Since medical school, I have delivered many babies, though the bulk of my training and practice is in pediatrics – the care of babies and children. As one who loves children (my wife and I have six), I speak today on behalf of children – children of all ages: Toddlers, babies and especially those little pre-born humans who today reside inside their mothers or who later will be received and delivered (or murdered).

            During the months leading to the Emancipation Proclamation, President Lincoln repeatedly discussed the matter with his cabinet. During one difficult discussion, he asked: “Gentlemen, how many legs does a sheep have?” Each man answered correctly, “Four, Mr. President.” He proceeded, “Let’s call his tail a leg. Now how many legs?” Each man replied, “Five, Mr. President.” Mr. Lincoln retorted, “Nope, still only four. Just because we call it a leg doesn’t make it one.”

            Mr. Lincoln’s wit and wisdom speak to our present day confusion about abortion. Let me explain.

            Abortion is murder. Each abortion snuffs out an innocent human life. Tragically, doctors have deceived the American public. Referring to unborn babies as “fetus,” “embryo,” or “zygote,” may be scientifically correct, but does not change the fact: These little ones are little human beings. Though called “parasite,” “blob,” or “tissue,” give each wee creature about 266 days after conception and see what emerges from his mother’s womb. It will be a human baby, not a zebra, a trout, frog or an orangutan.

            Remember Mr. Lincoln. Don’t be deceived by folks (even doctors) who call a tail a leg – or humans anything but humans. When a human egg and a human sperm unite, the resulting individual is simply human. Given time, nutrition and protection, he or she will grow to maturity. Calling abortion a “termination” or “evacuating the uterus” doesn’t change its reality as murder-slaughtering a human being with premeditated malice.

            Some Comments Comical

            Were it not tragic, some abortion comments could be comical. A previous guest writer on this page, Dr. Harrison, said the unborn baby is “a parasite without feeling, thought, or experience… the fetus simply does not have the things required to feel pain…”

            But nerves are in place by six to eight weeks after conception. The chemicals necessary to send messages over nerve pathways to the brain are present by 12 weeks. Ask yourself – if you were stuck, pinched, grabbed, cut or crushed, how would you react? You likely would squirm, thrash, try to escape or fight. Your blood pressure would go up; your pulse would speed up.

            That’s how pre-born babies respond. Before being cut to pieces, sucked apart, chemically killed, or otherwise abused (to death), these little humans struggle, seeking to escape the destruction. In my opinion, abortionists have forfeited the privilege to be called “physicians”, for they have abandoned the responsibility of acting like physicians.

            What about rape? What about incest? These horrors defy descriptive condemnation. They represent the least human and most selfish acts imaginable – along with murder – and they deserve swift and severe punishment. A woman or girl abused by rape or incest should be seen promptly, evaluated with compassion and treated appropriately to prevent conception. Should pregnancy occur, the tragedy should not be compounded by another crime: Murdering the baby.

            Rape and incest deserve one further note: They (thank God) represent a relatively uncommon cause of pregnancy – and figure in less than 2 percent of abortions. The other 98 percent are done for the sake of convenience (not that of the baby). Abortion represents the most common surgical procedure performed in America today. Enough human lives are snuffed out each day to populate Mena, De Queen, or Fordyce. Each week, abortionists slaughter a group of babies equal in number to the population of Springdale or El Dorado.

            One more tragedy – often delayed and overlooked – concerns the mother of the aborted baby. I have cared for and counseled such women – women who find it difficult to live with an awakened conscience. Though duped, squelched or ignored, a conscience awakened to reality may produce guilt, grief and pain. Even with the reality of forgiveness, the scars may produce long-standing consequences.

            One last ‘leg-tail’ deserves comment. Can you remember folks saying, “Don’t push your morality on me!” when foes of abortion challenge its practise? Most folk appreciate our society’s restrictions on rape, robbery, assault and murder – and those restrictions are based on morality, as is every aspect of our lives, whether collectively or individually.

            As a believer in Jesus Christ, I’m convinced that moral absolutes exist. My convictions as a Christian and as a physician include the sanctity of human life. If each individual human (including unborn babies) does not have worth, if we do not acknowledge our responsibility to care for the unwanted and the defenseless, we will find our collective path ending at the ovens of Auschwitz, the Gulags of Siberia, or the Abortion Chambers of America. END

            Abortion is Murder!

          • Scott Walker

            Abortion is wrong. The fact this law kills more people than would be aborted makes it cruel killing law

          • afchief

            You are a troll. How does this kill women?

          • Scott Walker

            Sorry I just realized you have a have an IQ of 2, but it takes 3 to grunt.
            Preventive health services can save lives and also a significant amount of money … poor health in terms of the dollars we spend on medical care

          • afchief

            You are proof of liberalism defining characteristic……lying!!!

          • Scott Walker

            Liberalism is good. Right wing nuts kill threw ignorance

          • afchief

            Liberalism has two great commandments; Love your God (0bama) with all your heart, and if your neighbor has more than you, it is within your right to take what is yours.

          • Scott Walker

            Republicans have ten commandments. Harm as many children as you can. 2 Torture as many Kids as you can, 3, Throw Grandma under the bus she cost to much. 3. end healthcare so millions die. 4 Throw grandma out of her home with out food or water. 5 Poison the water in as many towns as you can killing liberals. 6. end liberty and justice for all so the poor are in jails. 7 Once a baby is born water board them daily. 8 end education so are children can not take care of themselves, 9 Take housing away from as many as you can. 10 prey all day long on as many good honest people as you can. Did Koch send you another coloring book so you have more comments to copy and paste. Your post show you could never handle it yourself

      • bowie1

        Is mass genocide health care – murdering human beings before they see the light of day?

        • Scott Walker

          Preventive health services saves millions of lives and also a significant amount of money … poor health in terms of the dollars we spend on medical care. This pro death group is a mass genocide on women murdering women in the prime of life.

        • WorldGoneCrazy

          It’s a troll trying to get banned.

          • Scott Walker

            your the TROLL obviously no rational points just cut downs Praise your Lord god and savior David Koch

    • Kochsboy

      In a civilized nation healthcare would be for everyone. Anyone against healthcare is the is evil in carnage

      • afchief

        Wrong! Who is going to pay for the healthcare? Why should I or anyone else be forced to pay for others healthcare?

        • Scott Walker

          Because being a human it is the correct thing to do . Why do you have no fear of God. Your last statement shows your a sinner and there is a place for you down there.

          • afchief

            Helping your fellow man in need by reaching into your own pocket is praiseworthy and noble (the Christian way).

            Helping your fellow man in need by reaching into someone else’s pocket is worthy of condemnation (government stealing)

            For the government to steal other people’s wealth for your own benefit puts more faith in government over the individual, your family and your community. This clearly the wrong Christian path

            Christianity says “what’s mine is yours” Socialism and Communism says “What’s yours is mine” as you can see, it is the complete opposite satan works in opposites, turning the world upside down and the brainwashed think the Christians are turning the world upside down when the attempt is right side up

          • Scott Walker

            Helping your fellow man in need by reaching into someone else’s pocket is worthy of condemnation (government stealing) What verse in your IAN RAN bible is this from Praise your Lord and God David Koch. God has saved a special place down their for all you FAKE CHRISTIANs

        • Kochsboy

          Number one a true God fearing person does not count money when a life is involved. The facts show that this will kill millions compared to a handful of abortion deaths. I will agree with you if you agree to my demand. For every life you give up one life of one of your loved ones. Do you even now what love is by your uneducated post ? Your so pro death it is discusting

          • afchief

            You sound just like satan. Abortion is MURDER!!!! Satan was a murderer from the beginning.

          • Scott Walker

            Stalin is where all KOCH`s IDEAS are from. Fred Koch helped Stalin and Hitler build their war machines , Do you want links. Your supporting stalin with Koch or Walker. They are killers

        • gogo0

          i didnt realize it was jesus who said ‘why should i have to tale care of anyone but myself?’

          • afchief

            Don’t try and understand the Word of God. Without the Spirit of God within you, you have no clue what you are talking about.

            Giving comes from the heart. Being forced to give is NOT from the heart.

          • gogo0

            do you think a hungry child cares if you gave him a sandwich or if the government uses your tax dollars to give him a sandwich? the point is that the child is hungry and needs to be fed.
            your arguments are only a thin veil for your greed.

          • afchief

            You have NO right to someone else’s labor. That is called theft! As the Word of God says;

            2 Thessalonians 3:10 (NASB) For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.

          • gogo0

            yes, i already acknowledged your love of money over your neighbor. if the bible said that jesus prioritized his money over the welfare of others, you would be a much better christian than you are now

      • Oboehner

        When is ending a life for convenience “healthcare”? And Why should my tax dollars fund it?

        • Scott Walker

          Because we are God fearing humans. I must ask what type of animal are you ? Humans do not eat or throw away human lives by taking away healthcare. NO GOD would except this unless it was a evil God

          • Oboehner

            I must ask what type of animal are you ? Humans do not eat or throw away human lives and call it healthcare. NO GOD would except this unless it was a evil God.

          • Scott Walker

            Healthcare is a human right an God fearing person knows that. What Humans do not eat or throw away human lives and call it healthcare. What kind of crap is that ? First of all I have always said I am pro life. I just know the small amount of money spent on the abortions is nothing because it was less than 1%. If you do not support healthcare The rest of the money lost will just shorten the lives of tens of thousands of women . From months to 70 years. I have a post above on the top. It explains the legislatures are frauds and why I thing your being scammed The true motive.

          • Oboehner

            Abortion is not healthcare, millions have died. There are plenty of other places to get real healthcare.

            “The rest of the money lost will just shorten the lives of tens of thousands of women.” BS

          • Scott Walker

            “The rest of the money lost will just shorten the lives of tens of thousands of women.” BS this statement by you shows you have zero morals and no fear of a true GOD. You stating this untrue statement condoning millions of death I hope God stricks out and tortures your eveil evil evil evil satin ways, Crack tramps addicted to kochs rump will say anything. Now I must ask do you have children in your closet ? Please crawl back up who`s ever crack you fell out of. You could not have said something more evil.. Let millions of women die for what ? your fetis for the fetus Koch worshiper. God is obviously urinating on you

            Figures you would.

        • Kochsboy

          I do not support abortion. I just have enough brains to stay informed. The records show that taking away money from planned parent hood kills more women than saves in aborted lives. So a rational person considers the less of two evils. I see nut jobs and fake Christians not smart enough to read or just to lazy too. The tax dollar would save lives. Being a honest Christian I do not count my money when a life is involved, My fear of God has me get more educated before I jump to stupid conclusions. Take time find a educated person and have them look it to it. Your ideals are quit wrong. God knows better so before it is to later wise up

          • Oboehner

            Numbers lie and liars use numbers every day – “taking away money from planned parent hood kills more women than saves in aborted lives” BS.

  • Chrissy Vee

    Praise God! There are plenty of other facilities out there to provide women’s healthcare without killing babies for profit. PP does not care about the health (body or mind) of the “mothers”, nor the LIFE of the unborn. Scott Walker is a hero! I pray other states will follow suit.

    • Scott Walker

      Praise your Lord God and savior David Koch . Why are you pro death ? walker is known for ending education which is child abuse. Walker is a hero to child abusers. We now know every word you said has been proven false and you know it . Are you ?????

      • Chrissy Vee

        Calm down and take your fight somewhere else. This is good news whether you agree with me and many others or not. BTW, my God’s name is JESUS.

        • Scott Walker

          I am posting fakes not out right lies of the most evil folks on the PLANET. Your God is DAVID KOCH. Jesus would not take away healthcare. even a 6 year old knows that. Your not even sane. The good news is GOD see`s threw you and has a special place DOWN BELOW FOR YOU. WHY ARE YOU USING GOD`S NAME IN VANE ? YOUR DOOMED

          • Chrissy Vee

            Um, there are other healthcare facilities. No one took away healthcare.
            JESUS and Women and Infants took great care of me when I had cancer. And I had not a drop of money. I am living proof. And you are off the wall bonkers.
            I don’t know what Bible you have been reading (guessing NIV or, none). Hell is for baby murderers, not for those who joy in and fight for keeping His most helpless creation alive. You need to calm yourself before your head explodes.

          • Scott Walker

            You are a cancer on society. Fact is your pro death. You Bible is a Koch coloring book. Why do you support killers. I know drunks condone drinking you condone drugs being on drugs so I understand you supporting killing ways.
            Are you registered and allowed in most communities. The news paper has pictures of your kind when you get out

          • Chrissy Vee

            LMBO! I am not laughing because you are funny… but out of disbelief that you are actually not kidding. What planet are you from?

          • Scott Walker

            I am crying because I can not imagine you being near a child.

          • Chrissy Vee

            I know.
            Instead you would rather imagine children killed right inside of there mother’ wombs, where they should be the safest. No more calls folks.

          • Scott Walker

            Imagine a woman with cancer something you obviously know nothing about dies because of your ideals. That makes you proud. Would you rather see a hand full of unborn children die next to the millions that this will kill. In America when even Iraq HAS BETTER HEALTHCARE. JUST STAY IN YOUR BUNKER. LEAVE ARE CHILDERN ALONE.

          • Josey

            you talk about us that don’t condone the murder of the precious innocent helpless babies in the womb and one day if you do not repent of it you will be standing before Almighty God on the left of His throne and and be taken to hell for all eternity. I pray that doesn’t happen to you and that you answer the knocking of Jesus on your heart’s door but it’s up to you to you to open the door and let Him in, seek Jesus out and He will answer and straighten your thinking out and give you a new heart and set you free. Jesus loves you, John 3:16 -21 vs16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
            21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. And Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

          • Scott Walker

            YOU can spew all you want the fact is the number of abortions is nothing compared to how many women this will murder. Just like all you nutso`s kill and say your prolife LOL your pro death. My God support all good and even babies. It also supports born things like children, women and clean air and healthcare.
            The fact is a TRUE CHRISTIAN with a brain IQ over 14 knows that this will kill million so you can save a hand full of fetuses. sand your fetish for the fetus . I do not support torture which this law is the torture poor women bill. Nothing more as all educated folks know. People who get desperate and follow the evil of the GOP use this for a crutch to hide behind knowing they are harming the masses. That is as sick as you get.

    “But Planned Parenthood viewed the legislation as a means to end abortion.”
    You think…If planned parenthood were really about helping women’s health issues, then they don’t need to abort babies to accomplish that but we who know what Planned Parenthood is about, abortions. Great going Governor Walker, hit them where it hurts. But much more needs to be done, abortions should be outlawed period, lot’s of couples who can’t have babies will adopt and they could make adopting a baby a little easier, not saying just give a baby to whomever but for it to take so long is ridiculous.

    • Scott Walker

      since we know that only less than 1% is abortion. The rest is death notices for millions of Americans. I can not even imagine what your god is. a COW

            YOUR ALL HYPOCRATS
            The State of Wisconsin has provided $750,000 in loans — and nearly $2 million more in tax credits for investors — to benefit a Madison biotech firm using tissue derived from aborted fetuses, practices that are being closely scrutinized by conservative lawmakers and GOP Gov. Scott Walker.

            In the case of FluGen Inc. and potentially other biotech companies in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation — created by Walker — is subsidizing work that could be criminalized under a new ban being considered by lawmakers and the governor.

            There’s an apparent paradox in state officials’ approach to biotechnology, a key sector for Wisconsin’s economy, said Lisa Johnson, who formerly worked on economic development for the state.

            “In a sense, there is this contradiction because they’re valuing it in one respect but not in another,” said Johnson, chief executive officer of BioForward, the bioscience industry trade group in Wisconsin. “The state has invested a ton in (biotechnology). They have financial commitments to this sector.”

            Republican lawmakers have said that their final legislation will include an exemption that should allow FluGen to keep using longstanding fetal tissue to pursue its goal of a more effective flu vaccine. But as currently written, the bill would make it a felony to use tissue from an aborted fetus.

          YOUR A LIAR
          Planned Parenthood officials said the videos were deceptively edited and have maintained they have never sold or made a profit from fetal tissue. Two of the organization’s 700 centers provided the tissue to researchers and one of them received compensation, the agency said.

          Beth Parker, chief legal counsel for the Planned Parenthood Association of California, said many patients ask to donate fetal tissue because research using it has led to medical breakthroughs such as vaccines and Alzheimer’s disease treatments. The selling of fetal organs and tissue is already illegal under federal law, just as it is illegal to sell human organs and tissue. But individuals can donate fetal tissue.

          Parker said several “anti-abortion extremists” created the Center for Medical Progress and the fake fetal tissue procurement company Biomax. They then used false identities to attend two National Abortion Federation conferences in San Francisco and Baltimore. They taped conference participants without their knowledge despite signing confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements as a requirement for attendance.

          They aggressively pursued relationships with Planned Parenthood medical directors across the country and also used fake identities to get into medical facilities and private conferences. They sent fake contracts to Planned Parenthood employees but none signed them or agreed to their contents, she said.

          Amy Bomse, a partner at Arnold and Porter, which is representing Planned Parenthood, said the lawsuit alleges violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act as well as invasion of privacy and secret taping claims. It also alleges breach of contract.

          Parker said no specific dollar amount is being sought but Planned I hope they get trillions,.This will end killers like you support. Praise your lord God and savior David Koch. Life is short the rest of society know better

      • Dan Horsley

        That’s my policy. They want attention, so don’t give them what they want. Even so, I think his posts need flagging. We shouldn’t have the threads cluttered up with these silly rants.

        • Chrissy Vee

          OK.. I did flag the ones where he called Josey a lady of the night. I will delete most of my posts.

            In November, a gunman killed three people and wounded nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colo. That attacked followed arson attempts at other clinics.

        Unfortunately flagging doesn’t always work. I actually had to write them one time over many extreme vulgar and blasphemous posts that I flagged to no avail, regarding an article they posted about homosexuality. They responded with deletes and I believe even bans.

      • Scott Walker

        no your kind starve children

      I agree. I have been taking complete advantage of a poor soul. I am completely astonished.

    Wisconsin Currently receives approx. $12 Million a year in Fed funding. Will the state turn this money away, of take it for alternative use. The latter all but guarantees a loss in court. This is one more reason I hate the loooong, drawn out process, that is out elections.

      Always good to hear the geriatric view of issues.

    This is the true face of Scott Walker`s republican party. show me the CASH PARTY
    The State of Wisconsin has provided $750,000 in loans — and nearly $2 million more in tax credits for investors — to benefit a Madison biotech firm using tissue derived from aborted fetuses, practices that are being closely scrutinized by conservative lawmakers and GOP Gov. Scott Walker.

    In the case of FluGen Inc. and potentially other biotech companies in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation — created by Walker — is subsidizing work that could be criminalized under a new ban being considered by lawmakers and the governor.

    There’s an apparent paradox in state officials’ approach to biotechnology, a key sector for Wisconsin’s economy, said Lisa Johnson, who formerly worked on economic development for the state.

    “In a sense, there is this contradiction because they’re valuing it in one respect but not in another,” said Johnson, chief executive officer of BioForward, the bioscience industry trade group in Wisconsin. “The state has invested a ton in (biotechnology). They have financial commitments to this sector.”

    Republican lawmakers have said that their final legislation will include an exemption that should allow FluGen to keep using longstanding fetal tissue to pursue its goal of a more effective flu vaccine. But as currently written, the bill would make it a felony to use tissue from an aborted fetus.

    If just one of you FAKE CHRISTIANS truly wanted to help a human in any way shape or form change the law. Do not harm and kill millions of women for revenge. That is something only right wing Christians Lord and God and savior David Koch excepts. My God is good and does not harm anyone. The pro lifers are really pro death because this kills ten times as aborted babies. This is fake Christians and flakos nothing more. Work of the anti Christ and his flock

  • Scott Walker

    The group that passed this law and Scott Walker are not pro life . They are doing this to scam votes, They are pretend Christains. This expose the facts you been scammed .
