Fed. Gov't Will Pay for Family Planning in NH After State Council Cuts Funding
Reuters: Feds to fund N.H. family planning after state council refuses, by Jason McLure:

Planned Parenthood clinics had previously provided family planning services to more than half the state before a Republican state council voted to end a $1.8 million contract because the women's health group also offers abortions. . . .
