Daniels rejected the Justice Department’s contention that cutting Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood is illegal, and the Governor also rejected claims by advocates of Planned Parenthood that the cuts would leave women without needed healthcare.
“It’s not the Federal government’s job to tell a state through whom to deliver these services,” Daniels said. “Our job is to make sure not a single person, woman or otherwise, misses a single appointment or a single service. There’s no reason for that to happen. We have 800 alternative providers in this state.”
