Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is expected to sign a budget bill on Tuesday that eliminates state and federal funding from nine of the state's Planned Parenthood health centers. Indiana, Kansas and North Carolina did so earlier this year.
Walker was the first gubernatorial candidate to seek and win the official endorsement of Pro-Life Wisconsin -- a group that considers birth control a form of abortion and opposes sex education for teenagers
In Wisconsin these centers do not provide abortions, but the do provide birth control and is said to have prevented over 11,000 pregnancies in 2008.
On a side note the bill is written in a way that the center can't partner with the state lab that reads the tests that are part of their cancer screening process, this will make it extremely difficult to offer cancer screenings.
A slippery slope to the back alley? Your Thoughts....
