Supreme Court Ducks Effort To Defund Planned Parenthood

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear a case brought by Republican-led states that were seeking to defund Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood and other organizations that provide women’s reproductive health services.

The case does not involve federal money for abortion-related services. That is barred by federal law. Rather, it involves an effort by some states to block Medicaid funding for some abortion providers that, like Planned Parenthood, get Medicaid funding for providing other services to low-income women, services like cancer screenings, prenatal services, birth control and ultrasounds.

Three conservative justices — Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito — dissented and would have heard the challenges brought by Kansas and Louisiana.

But notably, two other conservatives, Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, did not. They were joined by the court’s four liberals.

  2. The article is of interest in so far as it clams that abortion services are not funded. Only regular services are funded. The lower courts blocked the state from defunding regular (non-abortion) services to organizations, even if the organization provides non-funded things like abortion. The question that comes to my mind is whether the reason women will go to such places as planned-parenthood for funded services is exactly because non-funded abortions had been performed and the side-affects of the non-funded abortions necessitated the funded services.
