Chris Christie Vetoes Bill Providing Funding For Planned Parenthood

Abortion mill giant Planned Parenthood is under fire, and rightfully so, after a series of videos showed employees at its clinics willingly aiding and abetting a self-confessed pimp in setting up abortion services for underage hookers.

One of the videos took place in New Jersey, and when a bill providing funding for Planned Parenthood in the state was sent to Governor Chris Christie’s desk he decided to veto it:

Following the release of a video that has received nationwide attention showing Planned Parenthood staff at a New Jersey abortion center helping alleged sexual traffickers cover up their crimes with abortions and STD testing, Governor Chris Christie has vetoed a bill funding Planned Parenthood.

A new undercover video shows Planned Parenthood officials in New Jersey telling a pimp and his prostitute assistant how they can get abortions for young teenage girls who, Planned Parenthood officials are informed, are Asians in the country illegally and forced into the sex trade. The staffer was later fired for her actions.

The Perth Amboy abortion center where the video is filmed is the second-largest Planned Parenthood center operated by Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey and the abortion business plans to double its number of abortion centers in the state.

Christie has already yanked state taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood but the state legislature sent him a bill to restore the taxpayer funds.

Good on Governor Christie, though you’d have to wonder why he’d sign such funding into law even in the absence of the recent videos detailing the organization’s perfidy. After all, given New Jersey’s woeful fiscal position, the politicians really have no business spending tax payer dollars on funding abortions.
