DOJ aims to keep Ariz. in abortion business

Federal authorities are taking a stand to kill a bill that would essentially defund Planned Parenthood in Arizona.

Musgrave, Marilyn (Susan B. Anthony List)Former Colorado Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, who is now with the Susan B. Anthony List, explains that the approved law sends the money to facilities that provide comprehensive healthcare that does not include abortion.

"The Department of Justice wants to go after Arizonans who want to get out of the abortion business," she says. "The Department of Justice [is] entering into the lawsuit after the passage of the Whole Woman's Health [Funding Priority] Act (HB 2800) that passed and was signed into law in May, making sure that the people in Arizona were not caught up in the abortion business with their tax dollars."

Planned Parenthood is not disqualified by the bill, but the dollars are prioritized for medical facilities that do not do abortions.

"Abortion is not healthcare," Musgrave asserts. "Women need comprehensive healthcare, and that's what this legislation was all about, plus getting people in Arizona out of the abortion business."

The SBA List spokesperson concludes that the federal government's attempt to intervene in the lawsuit and kill HB 2800 is just further proof that President Obama is the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history.
