• See How New Hampshire Took $600,000 Grant From Planned Parenthood

    New Hampshire legislators canceled state taxpayer funding for the state’s six Planned Parenthood clinics Wednesday, deleting roughly one-third of their public funding.

    The state’s Republican-led Executive Council rejected a $639,000 in state taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood in light of Senate Democrats defeating a bill to defund the abortion giant.

    The Granite State is the second state to strip funding from the organization after multiple expose’ videos show top Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and participating in the harvesting, dissection, and distribution of aborted babies. Pro-life Governor Bobby Jindal also made the decision to cancel Medicaid funding to the abortion company in Louisiana.

    The New Hampshire Executive Council cited the series of undercover videos in the meeting.

    Planned Parenthood maintains that they do not profit from the exchange  and the fees it charges are legally legitimate. The Center for Medical Progress, the pro’life group that conducted the sting videos, alleges Planned Parenthood is illegally selling the aborted baby parts for profit and plans to release more footage.

    The Council asked the state’s Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan to launch an investigation into local Planned Parenthood clinics, but the Attorney General’s office said it will not pursue the matter.

    “We do not launch criminal investigations in the state of New Hampshire because somebody edits a tape,” Hassan said. “I find it very, very troubling that anyone would vote against these [Planned Parenthood] contracts, just because the national political climate is a little difficult.”
