Wisconsin assembly vote Thursday on cutting $3 million from Planned Parenthood



Vos says there aren’t enough votes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The Wisconsin state Assembly plans to vote Thursday on a bill that would take away more than $3 million in federal grant money that Planned Parenthood receives each year.

The Assembly’s Rules Committee today approved placing the bill on the agenda for a vote Thursday.

Another measure that would make it a felony to do research on tissue obtained from aborted fetuses was not scheduled for a vote. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says there are not enough votes to pass the measure in its current form.

The bill that will be debated Thursday would require the state to apply for federal Title X money that currently goes only to Planned Parenthood. It would also prohibit any of the federal grant money going to abortion providers.
