TN Planned Parenthood chapters stripped of all federal funding

Jun. 11, 2011,  Chas Sisk, The Tennessean

The Metro Public Health Department will take over a $335,000 federal grant for family planning services, after a campaign to strip the funding from Planned Parenthood.

Metro Health Director William Paul said in a letter Friday that his department will accept all federal money set aside for family planning in Davidson County. The money had previously been split between Metro and Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee. (link)
