Indiana Right to Life statement on Obama administration rejection of Indiana’s defunding of abortion business Planned Parenthood

July 6, 2012

Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter issued this statement today in response to the recommended ruling against Indiana’ defunding of Planned Parenthood issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a component of the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services department:

“We are deeply troubled by the Obama administration’s continued rejection of Indiana’s right to end Medicaid funding for Indiana’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, even after expert testimony concluded that ‘there is a significant probability that Medicaid payments to Planned Parenthood cross-subsidize its abortion services’. Once again, the administration is revealing its absolute disdain for states rights while propping up the business of abortion at the expense of Hoosier taxpayers. Fortunately, this is not the final ruling. We remain confident that Indiana will prevail and that Hoosiers will have the confidence of knowing their tax dollars are not paying for abortions.”
