Press advisory: Obama administration will try to force Indiana to resume public funding for Planned Parenthood

June 1, 2011

The following statement was issued today by Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter in response to an Associated Press report that the federal Health and Human Services Department considers Indiana’s new law to remove public funds from Planned Parenthood illegal:

“The Obama administration appears to be intent on trying to force Indiana to subsidize the business of abortion in direct contrast to the desires of the state legislature and the people of Indiana.  Indiana must refuse to be bullied by the federal government and must challenge this politically-charged determination with full vigor.  The state of Indiana has a right to determine how it will manage its Medicaid program and to select the providers it will partner with.  Planned Parenthood is not entitled to public funding.”
