Health Services Axed
On Friday, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law a bill to eliminate Planned Parenthood’s access
to taxpayer money for “non-abortion” services. While Arizona already bars the use of public funds for
abortions, the new legislation means broader prohibition.
“We are most concerned about the women and men who could be forced to go without health care as a result of this bill,” Bryan Howard, Planned Parenthood Arizona’s president and CEO, said on Friday.
In all, roughly 20,000 women will be affected by the ban which eliminates funding for not only health care programs but for family planning services as well.
“By signing this measure into law I stand with the majority of Americans who oppose the use of taxpayer funds for abortion.” Brewer said in a statement.
Fortunately, Mrs. Brewer has the financial means to cover her own personal health care and will therefor not be affected by her new law. Amazing how that works.
