(Worthy News) - The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned an earlier ruling against an Ohio law that strips Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics public health funding.

In a split en banc ruling, the federal appeals court has seemingly paved the way for the Buckeye state to no longer give tax dollars meant for non-abortion public health matters to organizations that perform abortions.

The majority of the court ruled that the Ohio law, passed in 2016 to mandate that the Ohio Department of Health refuse funding to any entity that performs elective abortions, was not unconstitutional. The court reasoned that abortion organizations “do not have a due process right to perform abortions.” [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
