Tennessee House Passes Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

Tennessee House lawmakers approved a bill Monday to request a federal government waiver to completely defund abortion facilities in the state.

Sponsored by state Rep. Jimmy Matlock, House Bill 2251 would require the state Medicaid program to submit a waiver to the federal government asking that Tennessee not be forced to send tax dollars to groups that do abortions, according to the Tennessean.

The legislation passed in a 71-17 vote Monday, and now heads to the state Senate, the AP reports.
