Karen Handel Votes To Fund Planned Parenthood While Fulton Comm Chair

by PV

The Political Vine has a copy of the March 16, 2005 Meeting Minutes of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners Meeting. Look to Page 12, Item 2 for the item listing the Planned Parenthood contract, and on Page 13 is where the motion is proposed and voted unanimously in favor of granting the contract to Planned Parenthood.

What does Planned Parenthood do? The exact opposite of their name. Their plan is to STOP parenthood from ever occurring by aborting fetuses in any and every trimester of a pregnancy.

  1. Psychdoc Says:

    And there are documents to verify that they renewed the contract for each of 3 years (while she was Chair)for a total of $1.2 million dollars.

  2. Nancy Haupt Says:

    I won’t support anyone who supports aborting fetuses! It makes me sick. When will we call sin what it is – SIN?

  3. Conni Rae Says:

    I will not be voting for someone who will support such a measure…it’s murder, pure and simple.

  4. Elizabeth Morrell Says:

    Ah, guess this one fits the “rumor” part of your mandate, Bill? Just to provide a little context for your readers, in Karen’s own words:

    My opponents have recently recycled old attacks against me concerning Fulton County’s funding of some programs through Planned Parenthood. They are doing so without providing any context and continue to omit several key and important facts. First, let me be clear, since I am pro-life, I do not support the mission of Planned Parenthood. During my time as Chairman of Fulton County, there were federal and state pass-through grants that were awarded to Planned Parenthood for breast and cervical cancer screening, as well as a “Healthy Babies Initiative.” The grant was authorized, regulated, administered and distributed through the State of Georgia. Because of the criteria, regulations and parameters of the grant, Planned Parenthood was the only eligible vendor approved to meet the state criteria. Additionally, none of the services in any way involved abortions or abortion-related services. In fact, state and federal law prohibits the use of taxpayer funds for abortions or abortion related services and I strongly support those laws. Since grants like these are from the state I’ll eliminate them as your next Governor.
