(Worthy News) - Any health care facility providing abortions in Tennessee will no longer receive any government funding, thanks to a new state law.
The amount of state-funded health care will not be cut, just transferred to health care organizations that do not kill the unborn, Live Action reports:
“Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed a bill this week that will soon strip Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities of state funding. The state will now request a federal waiver which allows them to bar TennCare, Tennessee’s Medicaid program, from giving money to any abortion facility.”
“Instead of directing funding towards abortionists, TennCare money will now be given to legitimate health care providers.” [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]
