Miami County Commissioners Turn Down Funding for Birth Control | fox4kc.com

PAOLA, Kan. – A controversy is brewing in Miami County after commissioners recently voted to ax a grant primarily used to buy contraceptives.

The stated reason for voting not to include the funding was that the taxpayer dollar shouldn’t be used for the dispersion of contraceptives,” Krull said.

But Kelly Fritz, who volunteers at the clinic, says the federal money is earmarked for this specific program, so if Miami County doesn’t use it, it’ll just go elsewhere.

“So if we don’t get it, that money is already set aside for that program and it’s going to be going to another county or another place,” she said.

That’s exactly why commissioner Ron Stiles voted to keep it.
