A Michigan police officer has been arrested for killing a pregnant woman and her unborn child. He was supposedly on duty when he killed her and was at the scene of the crime the day after her body was found.
In Tennessee, Shelby County has decided against contracting out family planning services to Planned Parenthood. Instead, Christ Community Health Services will receive the 400k grant.
However, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England will receive $1 million dollars in family planning money after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services took over the funding dispersal when New Hampshire's Executive Council was unable to find an alternative provider.
The question of the Planned Parenthood contract divided the all-Republican Executive Council. Yesterday, Councilor David Wheeler, one of the three councilors who voted against the contract, said the federal decision reveals the "arrogance" of the Obama administration. Wheeler, who lives in Milford, said he voted against all 11 family planning contracts decided in June because the federal family planning program allows referrals for abortion.
