Wasn't sure where to post this, so Mods please feel free to move to correct forum.




Last month Indiana voted to defund Planned Parenthood and the Obama administration is not taking kindly that choice. The AP is reporting that the Obama administration may withhold up to $4.3 billion in Medicaid funding for low income healthcare from Indiana if they do not change their mind about defunding Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood has long been a target of pro-life advocates as they perform more than one in four US abortion and are one of the most outspoken political defenders of the procedure. In Indiana, Planned Parenthood performs over half of all abortions based on their latest annual report which showed that they did 5,580 termination procedures. About 10,700 abortions are annually performed statewide by all providers.

Is this legal? I would think not, but I am not sure. Think about all the many people whom have lost their jobs and have needed medicaid to insure their children. How can one man yield so much power? He is mentally unstable for even threatening this. Something must be done about his runaway political ideology.

He is proving to be a very dangerous man. How much more will we lose, if he remains in office? Can any of us
afford to let this type of communist behavior continue?

My message to his policy:



What do you think ATS?

Unfortunately, it's big business. I don't think it matters who the president is. Republican or Democrat, its all about greed. Shame on this great country for making the life and death of infants big business.

Abortion showdown could cost Indiana $4.3 billion


The federal Medicaid statute also gives HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius latitude to withhold only a portion of Indiana's Medicaid dollars, cushioning the impact.

Senate Appropriations Chairman Sen. Luke Kenley, a Republican who supported the Planned Parenthood ban, said the state should seek some deal to keep people from losing their coverage.

"If the state can't reach an agreement with the federal government, then the state should back off in the face of losing all its Medicaid funding," he said.

Kansas state lawmakers approved a budget earlier this month that restricts funding for Planned Parenthood. North Carolina lawmakers also are expected to block funds for the group.

HHS issued a warning letter to all 50 states this week, effectively firing a "shot across the bow" of others considering similar actions, said Betty Cockrum, president of Planned Parenthood of Indiana.

Well, he knows he has plenty of budget cuts to make in the coming months. He might have found a way to make some people blame someone other than himself.

Are you a political hack or what.... Is it that important to you that the taxpayer FUND planned parenthood that you would see medical funding withheld?

Fire with fire. Both are as important as each other.

Agreed! At first I thought your comment was aimed at me, but I can see you were talking to Bee. It is unconscionable, that the Federal Govt. would yank all medicade coverage in response to the cutting of funds for Planned Parenthood.

Why would you punish so many innocent people over policy that they have nothing to do with. It is as if we are living in a totalitarian society right now.

I don't know the answer, however, I know to deny so many people coverage is not the way to go. If healthcare (Obama care goes through, does that mean these people will be denied his mandatory coverage as well.

Geez!!!

War on women? Are you kidding? It is blatantly obvious that you get all of your information from the MSNBC paid-off political propagandists/hacks.

How interesting that you would choose the murder of the innocent via abortion over the healthcare of the needy. Liberal hypocrisy in action once again.

Planned parenthood is not a "needed" business. The fact that your government has taken responsibility away from the actions of adults and put it in their hands is very disturbing; but then, liberalism is a complete mental disorder and you will more than likely never understand the term "personal responsibility". Sickening!

Medicaid is a socialist program, so Obama withdrawing this aide is, technically speaking, moving away from communist behavior, not towards it.

Here it is... Democrats want low income people in Indiana to die. At least that's what the main stream media headline would be if they treated both parties the same.
