OC ends Planned Parenthood contract over abortions
The Associated Press. 5:27 p.m. March 10, 2009
SANTA ANA, Calif. — The Orange County Board of Supervisors has voted to suspend a contract with Planned Parenthood to provide health education for thousands of teenagers because the nonprofit organization offers abortions.
Members of the public and the board argued passionately before the unanimous vote at Tuesday's meeting.
Planned Parenthood's curriculum includes contraception, abstinence and sexually transmitted diseases.
Local Planned Parenthood President Jon Dunn says the county's $292,000 education grant that funded the program did not go to abortions.
Dunn says the supervisor who put the item on the agenda, John Moorlach, was motivated by religious ideology and not concerned about health policies that benefit Orange County.
