House GOP Bans County Health Clinics From Providing Birth Control
By Roy Temple
Yesterday, during debate on HB1010, the budget for the Departments of Health and Mental Health, House Republicans voted to ban county health clinics from providing family planning services. 
So the GOP has finally come clean that they are opposed to contraception. They used to argue that they opposed family planning because Planned Parenthood played a role. But now the GOP has targeted family planning provided by the county health clinics. Their action is a direct attack on women’s access to traditional family planning services.
The amendment, offered by Rep. Susan Phillips (R-Kansas City) removed “voluntary choice of contraception, including natural family planning” as one of the permissible services that county health clinics could provide with state funding.
A few weeks ago when I wrote about Governor Matt Blunt and Senator Jason Crowell’s opposition to birth control , some Fired Up! readers thought I was surely exaggerating. But now the GOP’s real agenda of making family planning more difficult has been laid bare for all to see.
