Saline County delays decision on IUD grant

Two weeks ago, the commission rejected the $6,064 grant to provide IUDs, or intrauterine devices, after Commissioner John Price likened the devices to murder. After being strongly criticized, the commission decided to reconsider the decision.

Saline County Health Department Director Bronson Farmer and several others pleaded with the commission Tuesday to reverse its decision. He says the county should give citizens options and let them decide whether to use them.

Price said he hasn’t changed his mind, and women who want IUDs can get them from their doctors.

The Salina Journal reports ( ) the commissioners might take up the issue again next week.
