A federal appeals court says Indiana cannot cut funding for Planned Parenthood. That’s right. The court is saying that a state, despite the will of its people, must fund the abortion industry.
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels bravely signed a law last year that made Indiana the first state to deny Medicaid money to Planned Parenthood because they provide abortions.
You might recall that after Daniels signed that law a standoff ensured with the Obama Administration threatening to withhold Medicaid funding from Indiana. The Administration later filed a brief in opposition of the law to force Indiana to fund the abortion giant that’s responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths per year.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser issued a statement, saying:
“Over the last two years – as 14 states have introduced or enacted measures to end taxpayer funding of abortion businesses – America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood has been able to rely only on sympathetic courts and the Obama Administration to buck the will of the taxpayers. Despite misinformation from the highest levels – including President Obama’s recent repetition of the falsehood that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms – more and more Americans have concluded that this abortion-centered business does not need or deserve taxpayer dollars. Planned Parenthood may have been handed a victory in the court but is losing, more importantly, in the court of public opinion.”
What a horror.
The Obama administration and the courts are clearly coming out not only against state’s right but human rights. Because more important than human rights is Planned Parenthood’s right to your money.
