Conservative states fight to undermine Planned Parenthood yet again

Source: American Independent



By Lisa Needham -May 22, 2020 3:30 PM

A group of Republican attorneys general is asking the Supreme Court to block low-income patients from health care providers if they offer abortions.

Attorneys general from 19 states, led by Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to allow states to block health care providers who offer abortion from being Medicaid providers. This move represents the latest attack to undermine and defund abortion providers, even when they are providing much-needed health care.

It has long been a goal of anti-abortion activists to cut health care providers that perform abortions off from any public funding. The Hyde Amendment already prohibits the use of federal Medicaid funding for abortions, even in instances when a doctor recommends the patient do so.

Additionally, last year, the Trump administration imposed the so-called "domestic gag rule," which prohibits clinics that perform abortions from receiving any Title X funds. Title X is a government program that was signed into law under President Richard Nixon, which provides federal money for family planning services, including birth control and sexual health screenings, for people with low incomes.

1. Why don't they just stick to Trump's plan?

If they kill all of us, abortions become obsolete.

2. Pro-life is a myth.

Republicans are in favor of killing living babies and have done so.

Pro-life is a myth.

The supposed pro-lifers cared naught when the state of Texas (republican gov, republican Prez) deliberately killed living baby Sun Hudson against the mother's wishes because he was an inconvenience to the state.

It is not a matter of life to the supposed pro-lifers.

It is a matter of control.

4. Just a continuation of class war

The wealthy will continue to get abortions should they desire. The poor will continue to get screwed.

7. Really? They're still fighting this battle?

I think we should all be trying to end this fucking coronavirus. Then we can get back to our petty differences.

10. Seriously! You would think if they were really "pro-life"...

This would be their opportunity to step up and help out. But George Carlin was right - these people aren't pro-life. What they really are is anti-woman.
