Haslam Sidesteps Planned Parenthood Lawsuit Commentary

Jeff Woods reproduces an exchange between himself and Gov. Bill Haslam on the defunding of Planned Parenthood and, naturally, adds some commentary.
Why did your health commissioner revoke those contracts? we asked Haslam today.
Haslam: We feel very comfortable in the lawsuit and because it is a lawsuit there’s not a whole lot I can say.
Q: Why would you revoke the contracts? You gave them the contracts and then you revoked them. Why?
Haslam: I think the commissioner felt like there were other people who could provide that service just as well.
Q: Why not let Planned Parenthood do it? You gave them the contracts before you revoked them.
Haslam: The commissioner felt like there were other people who could provide that service just as well.
Of course, this was just a little game we were playing. Haslam knows why the grants were taken away, and he knows we know. In fact, everyone knows. It’s all part of the social conservative jihad against Planned Parenthood for having the audacity to perform a perfectly legal health care service, i.e., abortions.
