Court Rules Indiana Can't Cut Funding to Planned Parenthood
State can't bar abortion providers from collecting Medicaid funds for medical services.
Indiana cannot cut funding for Planned Parenthood because the organization provided abortion services according to a court decision.
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a portion of a lower court ruling that said Indiana could not enforce a state law that barred abortion providers from collecting Medicaid funds for medical services. Some of those services included cancer screenings in addition to abortions.
In June 2011, a judge blocked portions of the bill and the state appealed the ruling.
