Court: State Can't Cut Off Funding For Planned Parenthood Over Abortions
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - The state of Indiana cannot withhold Medicaid funding from the local

proposed change violates federal Medicaid rules by restricting
beneficiaries' freedom to choose any qualified health care provider. click here to read more
