Obama Administration Rejects Indiana’s Ban on Medicaid at Planned Parenthood

The Republican Party’s total war on women’s rights suffers a setback

Indiana’s GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels tried to pull a fast one and ban the use of Medicaid funds at Planned Parenthood clinics, because as we all know, the best way to help the economy and create jobs is to take away women’s reproductive rights and destroy Planned Parenthood.

Ahem.

Today the Obama administration rejected Indiana’s ban and informed Daniels of something he probably already knew: that this far right legislation violates federal law.

In a letter to Patricia Casanova, director of the state Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning, Dr. Donald Berwick, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said that Indiana’s ban violated a provision of the law allowing that “beneficiaries may obtain covered services from any qualified provider that undertakes to provide such services.”
