Ohio Budget Defunding Media

Today, the Ohio House is voting to approve House Bill 487, the Mid-Biennium Review. The budget bill did not include an amendment that would have stripped Planned Parenthood's funding for family planning health care, education programs, rape prevention programs, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and infertility treatments.  That amendment was added to the bill last week and then removed in committee yesterday.

The following articles covered the events of the past week. This list will be periodically updated. Please tweet links of additional articles to @PPAOGabriel.
