SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ The Saline County Commission has refused to reconsider a vote rejecting a federal grant to provide a type of birth control to county residents.

Two weeks ago, the commission rejected a $6,064 grant through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for intrauterine devices, after one commissioner said the devices are equal to murder.

After being strongly criticized, the commission said it would reconsider that vote. On Tuesday, commissioners heard from citizens and doctors who offered differing views on whether IUDs caused abortions.

The Salina Journal reports the three commissioners said they had taken time to listen to people and decided to stay with their original decision.
