Res Ipsa Loquitur

AUGUSTA, MAINE, May 18, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The state of Maine has defunded family planning services, depriving an organization affiliated with Planned Parenthood of $400,000.

Governor Paul LePage, a Republican, signed a budget Wednesday morning designed to erase the state’s $83 million shortfall. One of the structural changes deprived Family Planning Association of Maine of $400,000 in taxpayer revenues.
" ... the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is the largest abortion provider in the United States, with some 850 clinics around the country (down from a peak of 938 in 1995). Although PPFA purports to offer “a wide range of medical and counseling services and health care education,” its primary business is providing abortion services. "[Discover the Networks]

Have any  government ever defunded  Planned Parenthood?  I thought not, but  surprise.  The question becomes, on what basis do any government agency, especially at the Federal level, justify spending taxpayer money supporting any private enterprise, let alone one as toxic as PP??

The government has no business funding elective medical procedures.
