Awesome – North Carolina defunds Planned Parenthood

This is great news especially considering I am a NC citizen!

CBN NEWS – North Carolina will no longer fund Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider.

Republican lawmakers voted to end all state contracts with private providers of family planning services, overriding Gov. Bev Perdue’s veto of de-funding the group for the second time.

The move redirects more than $343,000 from Planned Parenthood to county health departments.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony list, said the vote “does not cut a dime” of funding for family planning.

“Planned Parenthood is an abortion-centered, profit-driven business, not the caring health provider for women and girls they purport to be. They neither need nor deserve taxpayer dollars,” Dannenfelser said.

“This budget adjustment does not cut a dime of family planning funding. It does protect the consciences of pro-life taxpayers by sending funds to county health departments which do not perform abortions,” she said.

    Great job North Carolina! Love to see government look out for the people. The way it should be.

  • HELL YEAH!!!!! Way to go North Carolina! I’m so happy to read this this morning…this is truly amazing news!

    You aren’t a citizen of NC, just a resident. Your citizenship belongs to the United States.

    • Nothing of mine belongs to anyone but me. I choose to pledge my allegiance to the United States. So far anyway.

    • sjmom

      And America belongs to the people, not the federal govt.

  • Another reason to move down there. Although Virginia isn’t that bad…..

  • DCGere

    Excellent news!

    WTG NC! I wish I had moved to NC instead of TN. TN is being manipulated by Liberal forces. I don’t trust the future of this state anymore. Too many old time democrats (social conservatives, fiscal liberals) that have no idea what they are voting for are being led astray.

    • conservative58

      I totally agree. I’m shocked at the amount of liberalism that has crept into TN over the past few years.

      • NYGino

        The results of a large infiltration of ‘halfbacks’, people from the liberal Northeast who moved to Florida and then moved halfway back, settling in Tennessee, halfbacks.

  • Well somebody is finally thinking of the children…

  • tinker_thinker

    Wow! Great news!

  • Captain_Maynard

    Its a start.

  • I think it’s great that government at some level is looking out for the taxpayers- and for women and children.

  • grinder47

    Wow! Do not under estimate the power of a fervent prayer from the heart of a man
    or woman who cares. GOD listens! My conscience feels a bit clearer today!

  • grinder47

    Never under estimate the power of fervent prayer from the heart of a good man or woman. GOD listens! My conscience feels a bit cleaner today! Way to go North Carolina!
    Strange how affirming it feels to be lead by principled leaders.

  • Dukehoopsfan

    Wow, it seems like the liberal bedrock in NC is beginning to crumble. 🙂

  • 911Infidel

    I think the weasel Pudue’s days are numbered. NC is swinging back where it belongs. Its high time Repubiks everywhere stop allowing their states to be an accessory to the murder of the unborn.

    • sjmom

      Unfortunately, too many Rep agree with abortion and a good number are elected to office.

      • 911Infidel

        Yes. We call them RHINOs. They are target #2 right after Dhimiratz in this election process.

        • anyonebutbarry2012

          yup., both sides need a much needed cleaning no doubt.

          • 911Infidel

            That’s what we have SP and Tea Party for…and so far…the results of elections have been not too bad.

  • badbadlibs

    My husband said if bo gets elected we’re moving to the Bahamas (such a difficult move…;) ) I think I’ll suggest North Carolina.

  • Marky_D

    Brilliant news for you guys – let’s hope this is the first state of many (unless others have already done this?).

    • sjmom

      Didn’t Texas do something similar?

      • Marky_D

        Oh maybe… I’m probably not up to speed.

  • sjmom

    I believe NC will be the first of many to abandon liberalism. People are tired of it.

    Also think this Nov will make 2010 look like small potatoes. My only concern is if the GOP will do what is right, instead of politically expedient like John Roberts did. I don’t have much trust in Congress or Romney.

    The interesting thing about this story is Planned Parenthood claims they don’t use government funds for abortions, so other parts of their program will get hurt with this lose.

    Yeah, right. What a stale argument. Donations are donations. I’ve never believed that old argument. If you donate 40% of their funding, then all their programs are getting 40% from you. Your donation doesn’t go to good causes while someone else’s donation goes to abortions. What a crock.

    If they don’t want to lose the government money, get rid of abortion. Period. Seems simple to me.

    One state down, 49 others to go (several of which have already defunded PP). Obama can keep the extra 7 states.

  • Darn right Planned Parenthood is an abortion-centered, profit-driven business, not the caring health provider for women and girls they purport to be. Its about time we do not give any more money to these abortion factories. The only problem is, if Obamacare is implemented throughout the country, then the Federal Government will simply fund all the abortions. That is the big fight that is taking place between the Catholic Church and the Federal Government right now. And if the government wins, it will simply force all doctors to provide abortions, whether they like it or not because it will be Federal law to do so. Another major reason to stop Obamacare in its tracks. Hope we can still do it.

  • 3seven77

    What??? No more low-cost abortions provided at taxpayer expense?? And no gay marriage?? Man, you people in North Carolina must have morals or something. 🙂

    • 1mathteacher

      Yeah, they’re doing well up there! Good for them!

      I wonder if their governor will compare them to Mississippi again…

  • This is awesome! I am very thankful for the current conservative trend in our state politics.

  • NCHokie02

    Glad to hear great news for NC! Gov. Perdue needs to go next. I really believe that the only bastions of liberalism in this state are from liberal northerners who have moved to the Raleigh-Durham area and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area….plus Asheville. Only reason NC went for Obama last election was those two areas and people voting because of race.

  • liubinglin

  • bobemakk

    Gee, I now wonder if the DNC will still hold their convention there since they are against so many Obama policies. Good for NC.

    Way to go North Carolina! They are a good reason for (States Rights), and on this issue…their intentions were true and honorable, and their aim just.
