    Ohio GOP Wants To Limit VAWA’s Domestic Violence Prevention Funding In Ohio’s Budget
    By Annie-Rose Strasser on Apr 18, 2012 at 11:30 am

    While Republican members of Congress are opposing a popular, bipartisan bill reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, the Ohio GOP is doing his part to make sure that victims of domestic violence get fewer benefits from the bill in their state.

    Using Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) budget blueprint, Ohio Republicans added language that takes away all federal funding to “abortion providers,” including Planned Parenthood. But Planned Parenthood does more than provide abortions (that’s only 3 percent of their work). The amended Ohio budget would strip away much of Planned Parenthood’s ability to fight domestic violence, and deny them funds for cancer and HIV/AIDS prevention as well:

    In addition to restricting the flow of federal “family planning” funds, House Bill 487, sponsored by Representative Ron Amstutz and adopted without a recorded vote by members of the House Finance and Appropriations Committee, completely prohibits the distribution to Planned Parenthood of Ohio or any of its affiliates from any of the following federal programs:

    •Violence Against Women Act
    •Breast and Cervical Cancer Mortality Prevention Act
    •Infertility Prevention Project (US Dept of Health & Human Services)
    •Minority HIV/AIDS initiative funds (Centers for Disease Control)

    VP Biden is speaking now. No women should be victimized because someone has more physical power than she has.
