THERE IS NO POLITICAL DOWNSIDE:

New Jersey Governor Christie Vetoes Bill Sending Millions to Planned Parenthood (Steven Ertelt, July 23, 2010, LifeNews.com)

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie won the praise of pro-life advocates today by vetoing a bill that would restore the family planning funds his administration cut from the state budget because of deep economic troubles. Although it doesn't fund abortions directly, the money goes to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

The funds go to 58 family planning clinics but Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion chain, runs 29 of the facilities.

Christie thinks there's little reason to send the abortion centers $7.5 million when the state currently faces an $11 billion deficit.
