South Carolina Defunds Abortion, Planned Parenthood!

Claire Chretien : Aug 28, 2017  LifeSiteNews.com

"There are a variety of agencies, clinics, and medical entities in South Carolina that receive taxpayer funding to offer important women's health and family planning services without performing abortions." -South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster

(Columbia, SC)—[LifeSiteNews.com] South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued an executive order today preventing abortion facilities from receiving any state or local money. (Photo: Gov. Henry McMaster/via LifeSiteNews.com)

McMaster's order means that South Carolina won't provide funds "via grant, contract, state-administered funds, or any other form" to any physician or doctor's office affiliated with an abortion facility.

This applies to "any physician or professional medical practice affiliated with an abortion clinic and operating concurrently with—and in the same physical, geographic location or footprint as—an abortion clinic," according to the governor's office.

The executive order notes that there are "a variety" of places women can access healthcare that doesn't include abortion. 

"The State of South Carolina has a strong culture and longstanding tradition of protecting the life and liberty of the unborn," the order says. It asks that South Carolina Medicaid petition the federal government for permission to take abortion facilities out of its provider network, which would further defund abortion entities.

Even though Medicaid can't technically fund abortions in most states, taxpayer funding from it can go to other "services" at abortion facilities, enabling them to stay in business.

"Abortion providers often focus primarily on abortion-related services and procedures," the order acknowledges.
