A federal appeals court has ruled that Arkansas can block state funding to Planned Parenthood, voiding an injunction a federal judge had previously mandated preventing the state from doing so.
According to The Associated Press, Arkansas’ decision to block funds from Planned Parenthood came in direct response to undercover videos recorded by an anti-abortion group revealing the horror of the “health care clinic” and its operations.
Those videos, among many things, revealed that Planned Parenthood uses partial birth abortions to earn money selling baby parts.
Three Planned Parenthood patients subsequently sued the state over its withholding of Medicaid funds. In response, a federal judge ordered the state to continue its payments and expanded the order to include all Planned Parenthood patients.
An 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel vacated that ruling today, freeing Arkansas from its legal obligation to cover the cost of baby murder.
This is undoubtedly a victory for all those in the state of Arkansas who feel their hard-earned tax money should not support an immoral cause.
On the flip side, it’s a major loss for those who support the practice of baby murder. Indeed, many such progressives are out in full swing, speaking condescendingly and hysterically about the decision.
That's just what we need. More Arkansonians.

Because Republicans hate it when women get access to birth control and disease screenings. They'd rather see women die

Another way of showing that the GOP doesn't care about women or there access to healthcare

While this is certainly a victory, us pro-lifers in America must not rest until the practice of abortion is fully outlawed, with no clauses.
The practice of baby murder should not be condoned or allowed – regardless of if it’s private donors or the government paying for it.
Progressives (as seen above) like to paint abortion as merely women’s health care. Nothing could be further from the truth; as AbortionInCanada.com reports, women who undergo abortions are more likely to experience mental health problems than their peers.
These problems can range from severe anxiety to depression.
In a three month span, AbortionInCanada.com reports, women who have had an abortion are five times as likely to be admitted to a hospital for psychiatric reasons.
End Abortion Now is just one of the many organizations fighting against the draconian practice today. Visit their website here to learn how you can get involved in their ministry.
