Justices won’t hear states’ appeal over Planned Parenthood


Associated Press

WASHINGTON (December 10, 2018) — The Supreme Court on Monday avoided a high-profile case by rejecting appeals from Kansas and Louisiana in their effort to strip Medicaid money from Planned Parenthood, over the dissenting votes of three justices. The court’s order reflected a split among its conservative justices and an accusation from Justice Clarence Thomas that his colleagues seemed to be ducking the case for political reasons. New Justice Brett Kavanaugh was among the justices who opted not to hear the case.

The two states were appealing lower court rulings that had blocked them from withholding money that is used for health services for low-income women. The money is not used for abortions. Abortion opponents have said Planned Parenthood should not receive any government money because of heavily edited videos that showed the nation’s largest abortion provider profiting from sales of fetal tissue for medical research.

Investigations sparked by the videos in several states didn’t result in criminal charges.

The dispute at the high court has nothing to do with abortion, as Thomas pointed out in a dissent that was joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. Kavanaugh’s decision not to join the three justices was his first discernible vote on the court. Had he or Chief Justice John Roberts voted to hear the case, there would have been the four votes necessary to set the case for arguments.

The issue is who has the right to challenge a state’s Medicaid funding decisions, private individuals or only the federal government. The states say that the Medicaid program, a joint venture of federal and state governments to provide health care to poorer Americans, makes clear that only the Secretary of Health and Human Services can intervene, by withholding money from a state.

Most lower federal courts have found that private parties can challenge Medicaid funding decisions in court, although the federal appeals court in St. Louis rejected a similar court challenge and allowed Arkansas to end its contract with Planned Parenthood. A split among federal appeals courts is often a reason for the Supreme Court to step in.

“So what explains the court’s refusal to do its job here? I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.’ That makes the Court’s decision particularly troubling, as the question presented has nothing to do with abortion,” Thomas wrote.

The dispute over funding for Planned Parenthood stemmed from the July 2015 release by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress of a series of edited videos purportedly depicting Planned Parenthood of America executives talking about the sale of fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood has said it did not seek any payments beyond legally permitted reimbursement of costs.

Catherine Glenn Foster, president and CEO of the pro-life Americans United for Life, said the court should have heard the case. “But the good news is that there are other similar cases pending in lower courts, which may give the Supreme Court another opportunity to decide this important issue. In the meantime, AUL will continue to fight to protect states from being forced to use their limited public funds to subsidize abortion businesses,” Foster said.

Planned Parenthood’s latest propaganda


Reported by Charlie Butts (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday, December 3, 2018

An abortion business is using a popular media resource to promote parental acceptance of transgender children. The Planned Parenthood video, designed for parents, suggests there is nothing they can do to change their child’s gender identity — that a boy who wants to be a girl should be left to his view of the subject.

Jim Sedlak of the American Life League (ALL) says it is just a business move to generate more revenue for the organization, as Planned Parenthood provides drugs to children in order to prevent puberty.

“Planned Parenthood in a number of places is selling what they call puberty blockers, which are products that block the production of testosterone in boys and estrogen in girls until the kids can pick out what gender they want to be,” Sedlak explains.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)But in many states, parents must consent to the puberty blockers, so the video is really propaganda to convince them to sign on the dotted line for the sake of their child’s mental health, which the ALL president says is a false statement.

“So Planned Parenthood in our estimation has started this widespread campaign to get parents to get comfortable with letting children choose their identity so that the parents will sign off and Planned Parenthood will be allowed to deliver these puberty blockers to their children,” Sedlak continues.

The truth, however, is children usually outgrow the gender dysphoria by their teenage years, or the psychological problem can be addressed through mental health counseling.
