North Carolina will no longer fund Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider, CBN News reports. Republican lawmakers voted to end all state contracts with private providers of family planning services, overriding Gov. Bev Perdue's veto of de-funding the group for the second time. The move redirects more than $343,000 from Planned Parenthood to county health departments. "Planned Parenthood is an abortion-centered, profit-driven business, not the caring health provider for women and girls they purport to be," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. "They neither need nor deserve taxpayer dollars. This budget amendment does not cut a dime of family planning funding. It does protect the consciences of pro-life taxpayers by sending funds to county health departments which do not perform abortions."
