Tennessee Complains of $395K to Planned Parenthood

Pro-life groups say that the Obama administration is circumventing Tennessee’s 2011 decision to defund Planned Parenthood. The Susan B. Anthony List explained that this is the second time the administration has bypassed the state's decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood-- the first example being a $1 million contract with Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, despite New Hampshire’s original decision to reject a contract with the group. President of Tennessee’s Right to Life Brian Harris made this statement:
"'While we are disappointed that any tax funding would be directed to private organizations promoting and profiting from the killing of unborn children, this end run around the people of Tennessee will serve to underscore the urgent need to elect a pro-life president, Senate and Congress in November.’”
