Martinsburg, WV – Sometimes victories are large and everyone for miles knows about them. Other times they are smaller and not as well publicized. Unless you are well connected you might not know of the small victories on the war against abortion taking place across America. Allow me to share some of these victories so you, like I, can be encouraged to continue fighting this war to preserve and protect life.
One of the biggest victories to date comes from Indiana. The state revoked all funding to Planned Parenthood and the new law was signed by Gov. Mitch Daniels. While there is still contention in Indiana, a temporary injunction has halted implementation of the law; there is optimism that the vote of the state legislature will prevail.
In Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker signed legislation that redirects at least $1 million in federal and state funding away from Planned Parenthood. Another notable aspect of this victory is that “the state budget contains a provision which puts the University of Wisconsin Health Care Authority (UWHCA) under the provisions of state law, which prohibits the use of state tax dollars for the performance of abortions,” according to a Lifenews.com article.
