Here’s some good news. Planned Parenthood is suing Alabama because the state refuses to use taxpayer money to fund the abortion provider.
“Planned Parenthood Southeast Friday filed suit against the State of Alabama and Governor Robert Bentley over his decision to cancel the state’s family planning contract with the abortion provider following allegations the organization sells the body parts of aborted babies.
“‘[Alabama officials are] hell-bent on ending a woman’s ability to make her own deeply personal and private health decisions,’ said Planned Parenthood Southeast CEO Staci Fox in a statement announcing the suit.
“‘Governor Bentley is trying to dictate where a woman can go for contraception and other preventive care if she’s enrolled in Medicaid,’ the statement continued. ‘Meanwhile, Alabama is dealing with some of the nation’s worst health outcomes, and restricting access to providers will do nothing to help the urgent problems we face.’
