On Friday, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said that "allegations against Planned Parenthood are deeply troubling," and ordered his state's Department of Health to stop sending federal funds to Planned Parenthood.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson likewise said his state was ending Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood. "It is apparent that after the recent revelations on the actions of Planned Parenthood, that this organization does not represent the values of the people of our state and Arkansas is better served by terminating any and all existing contracts with them," Hutchinson said in a statement.
More than $400 million of Planned Parenthood's over $500 million in public funding comes from Medicaid and other programs that combine state and federal funds.
