SCOTUS Denies Review in Planned Parenthood Funding Case
The murder of baby’s will continue at tax payers’ expense.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to take case where a federal appeals court struck down an Indiana law denying Medicaid funds to abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
Medicaid is a federal-state partnership where government pays for healthcare for low-income Americans. It has become increasingly one-sided to the point where now the federal government dictates most details to the states; it’s a partnership in name only. In 2011, Indiana enacted a statute denying future Medicaid funds to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States.
Planned Parenthood sued, raising various arguments as to why the Hoosier State did not have authority to stop payments to the abortion giant. A federal district court sided with Planned Parenthood and issued an injunction restoring funding while this litigation continues.
On appeal in Planned Parenthood of Indiana v. Commissioner of Indiana State Dept. of Health, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit rejected part of the trial court’s judgment but ultimately agreed that the Indiana statute was invalid. A three-judge panel held that under controlling Supreme Court precedent, Planned Parenthood has a right to sue under federal law for the loss of Medicaid funds.
