Bill To ‘Defund' Planned Parenthood Headed To Governor's Desk

A bill blocking the flow of state money to Planned Parenthood is ready for Governor Kasich's signature.

Mostly along party lines, the House on Wednesday concurred with Senate amendments to the bill (HB 294*) that would require the Department of Health to ensure that state funds and certain federal funds are not allocated to entities that perform or promote abortions.
