Fox6: Wisconsin Senate panel to vote on stripping Planned Parenthood funding
MADISON — The state Senate’s health committee is expected to vote on a pair of bills that would strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding and raise its Medicaid expenses.Fox6
One measure would require the state to apply for $3.5 million in federal Title X grant money, which currently all goes to Planned Parenthood. The bill would forbid abortion providers from getting any of that money and instead give it to the state’s Well Woman program that provides breast and cervical cancer screenings. The bill passed the full state Assembly in September.
