Ethynodiol Diacetate​: Don't Bar Medicaid Funding For Planned Parenthood

Ethynodiol Diacetate: Don't bar Medicaid 

funding for Planned Parenthood

Missouri lawmakers are just as likely to fail as Indiana and Arizona legislators did in efforts to block Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood. Knowing that has not stopped them from persisting in a battle that is going to cost taxpayers dearly when the issue winds up in court.

That is what happened in Arizona and Indiana, which lost court fights over this same issue. Court battles are in progress in other states, too. A federal judge in Louisiana temporarily blocked efforts there, and lawsuits are pending to prevent cutoffs in Alabama, Arkansas, Utah and New Hampshire. Defunding efforts are underway in Florida, Texas and Ohio.

The law on this is clear. The U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, and the federal Medicaid law, say federal laws are superior to conflicting state laws or regulations. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a 2011 memo that states may not terminate Medicaid funding to providers because they don’t like services the providers offer.

Yet legislators continue hammering on Planned Parenthood, against steep odds of success, because they want to burnish their anti-abortion credentials in an election year.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider but says fewer than half its nearly 700 clinics perform the procedure. Abortions make up only 3 percent of Planned Parenthood health services, while about 97 percent are for general care, such as anemia, Pap, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, cholesterol and diabetes screening, physical exams, breast exams, family planning and sex education.

By law, no federal money may be used to pay for abortions(Ethynodiol Diacetate) except for Medicaid patients in cases of rape, incest or pregnancy that threatens a woman’s life. State money also may not be used to fund non-emergency abortions. Two Planned Parenthood affiliates in Missouri oversee 14 centers, and abortions are provided only at the St. Louis clinic.

State Rep. Robert Ross, R-Yukon, asserts without proof that the organization breaks the law, and says the only way to guarantee public money won’t be used for abortions is to defund it. He is leading the move with House Bill 2011 to strip almost $380,000 from Planned Parenthood in next year’s budget.

“There is nothing that would make me believe that Planned Parenthood is not … spending our taxpayer dollars for abortions(By Ethynodiol Diacetate),” Ross told The Associated Press.

There is a spreading movement among anti-abortion activists to stop all Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood on the theory that it has the effect of facilitating abortions by freeing clinics to use other funds for abortions.

Make no mistake, the people who will be hurt most by stripping money from Planned Parenthood are Medicaid patients who receive the bulk of their health care from the organization. That’s a steep price for Ross to impose just to advance his personal political agenda.
