Planned Parenthood Sues South Carolina to Restore Funding; Pro-life Governor Vows to Fight



By Brandon Showalter - Posted at the Christian Post:

Planned Parenthood is suing South Carolina in an attempt to restore funding from the state's Medicaid program that the state's governor recently cut through an executive order.

Governor Henry McMaster, R-S.C., stripped abortion providers of over $15 million in tax dollars in the latest state budget earlier this month through use of his line-item veto. Of that $15 million, $100,000 would have been for Planned Parenthood centers, LifeSiteNews reported Monday. McMaster also signed an executive order that disqualified abortion facilities from being Medicaid providers.
"I have stated many times I am opposed to what Planned Parenthood is doing. And the veto I have is the most direct way," McMaster explained.
