Iowa House Passes Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

Iowa House lawmakers approved a budget plan Wednesday that would defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups, the Quad-City Times reports.

The budget plan, which now moves to the state Senate, coincides with state legislation to defund abortion groups. The bill would end state participation in a federal family planning program and create a new state-funded program for health care groups that do not do abortions. Money to fund the program would come from a federal block grant for child and family services.
