“Attorneys general from 16 states came out Thursday in support of a Planned Parenthood lawsuit challenging an Ohio law that would deny state and federal funds to organizations providing abortions.

“The 2016 state law would not take away any money from abortion services, which are not generally covered by federal funds. Instead it would bar abortion providers and those that contract with abortion providers from receiving certain grants that pay for HIV tests, cancer screenings and infant mortality prevention.”
