Republicans in Congress were dealt a blow in their efforts to defund Planned Parenthood recently. It seems that in spite of video evidence that the country’s most prolific abortion machine is up to no good and selling the body parts of fetuses, they still enjoy the strong support of the White House and Democrats.
But that doesn’t worry Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) a bit.
He just blocked Planned Parenthood’s access to Louisiana state taxpayer dollars.
According to the Washington Times:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal canceled Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid contract with his state Monday, moving to strip the organization of funding in the wake of disturbing undercover videos that appeared to show employees haggling over selling fetal tissue obtained from abortions.
Mr. Jindal said the videos showed Planned Parenthood workers admitting they engaged in late-term abortions and did them to try to leave fetus body parts as intact as possible so they could be sold later.
He said his state health department believes Planned Parenthood’s local affiliates could be breaking laws that prohibit groups that take funding from encouraging women to have abortions.
“Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental disrespect for human life,” the governor said in a statement announcing the move. “It has become clear that this is not an organization that is worthy of receiving public assistance from the state.”
Mr. Jindal insisted there are other organizations and clinics that can provide women’s health services without the baggage that Planned Parenthood brings.
