When Indiana cut off Medicaid funding to the state's 28 Planned Parenthood clinics, the Associated Press reported that poor women "were left fending for themselves ... to pay for birth control, breast exams, Pap tests and other medical services." What the AP failed to mention is that there are 800 non-abortionist Medicaid providers still eligible to provide those services. But don't take my word for it. Lila Rose's pro-life group Live Action has released a video in which women posing as Medicaid patients call up Planned Parenthood clinics and ask them where they can get care. The response: See your primary care doctor, or another local clinic.
