Obama Administration Says No to Indiana's Attack on Planned Parenthood

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Good news!

Donald Berwick, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, notified Indiana officials in a letter that the state could not single out Planned Parenthood for exclusion from Medicaid funding.

What's the response? Well, Indiana officials plan to ignore the federal order, and push ahead in implementing the state's illegal law. This could potentially cost the Hoosier State more than $4 billion in federal funds.

So, let's keep in mind what this means: the Indiana government is putting a politically-inspired law before women's health. 

This is not a political back-and-forth. We're talking about thousands of women's access to birth control, cancer screenings, and other basic care.
