Ohio Rep. Bill Patmon in the news

A few days ago, Ohio Rep. Bill Patmon (representing the 10th district in Cuyahoga County in the Columbus statehouse) made a speech that is getting picked up at Red State, Lucianne, and other blogsites. Breitbart reported:
Ohio State Representative Bill Patmon (D) declared Black Lives Matter protesters “skipped one place, they should be in front of Planned Parenthood” at a rally at the Ohio Statehouse on Tuesday.
In the speech, video of which was first posted to Dix News’ and the Youngstown Vindicator‘s Statehouse Bureau Chief Marc Kovac’s Capital Blog, Patmon states that his mother would have been a “prime candidate” for an abortion, but chose not to have one.
He later said, “‘What business is it of yours, Mr. Patmon that 56 million unborn –?’ It is my business, especially 17 million of them are black women. 17 million, more than any other population. 17 million…that look, and act, and talk, and would be similar to myself. But, even more than that, they’re Americans, and they’re human beings.”
After saying he doesn’t like the term “African-American” because he’s just an American and there’s “no need for any extras,” Patmon stated that 5,499 abortions that take place in Cuyahoga County, which he represents, and “63% are black women.”
According to CNS News:
In 2014 alone, Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, received $528.4 million in taxpayer funding, according to its 2014 annual financial report.

Whether you are Pro-Life or Pro-Choice, the taxpayer should not be subsidizing Planned Parenthood. Lest you think the GOP in DC is on the case, the current legislation being crafted is, according to a blog on American Thinker, merely symbolic, and its sponsors already missed their opportunity to vote on an amendment with teeth in it.
