SCOTUS Action Gives S. Carolina The Opportunity To Keep Taxpayer Dollars From Contributing To Abortions

The public funding of the largest abortion business in America is in jeopardy in South Carolina. 

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court tossed out a lower court’s decision to block South Carolina from terminating public funding to Planned Parenthood, which annually performs around 330,000 abortions.   

Supreme Court justices have asked the lower court to reexamine the case due to their 7-2 ruling of a similar lawsuit in Indiana, Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County v. Talevski

The debate is whether states have the right to bar Medicaid, a state-federal medical insurance program for low-income individuals, from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.

“Pro-life states like South Carolina should be free to determine that Planned Parenthood and other entities that peddle abortion are not qualified to receive taxpayer funding through Medicaid,” Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Chris Schandevel told LifeNews. “Congress did not unambiguously create a right for Medicaid recipients to drag states into federal court to challenge those decisions, so no such right exists.”

“The Supreme Court’s recent decision in Talevski makes that even clearer,” he continued. “And we’re grateful the 4th Circuit will have another opportunity to hold that Congress did not intend to allow federal courts to second guess states’ decisions about which providers are qualified to receive Medicaid funding.”

Planned Parenthood South Atlantic has clinics in Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina, which offer abortions (up to 14 weeks of pregnancy), gender-affirming hormone therapy, wellness visits, and other health services to hundreds of Medicaid patients yearly. 

When South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster passed a pro-life law that required the state’s Department of Health and Human Services to “terminate abortion clinics as Medicaid providers” in 2018, Planned Parenthood advocate and Medicaid patient Julie Edwards filed a lawsuit. 

A judge then ruled in the abortion giant’s favor and the state was prevented from enforcing the law. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals believed the judge’s ruling to be right and said Medicaid recipients can freely select a healthcare provider. 

Since that decision has been challenged by the Supreme Court, South Carolina again has the opportunity to keep taxpayer dollars from contributing to abortions and save unborn children’s lives.

Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?

Ken Ham, in an article reporting on the rising acceptance of abortion worldwide, explained that as “our culture fights for the right to end lives,” it is the duty of the people of God to “stand on the authority of his Word” and stand for the sanctity of life.

“The secular worldview also presupposes that we as humans are the gatekeepers of life and death—we make the rules; we determine right from wrong; we control our own destiny, including when we die. But God, our Creator, is the one who gives us “life and breath and everything else” (Acts 17:25),” Ham asserted. “We are his workmanship, and all the days he has ordained for us are written by him (Psalm 139:16). We don’t have the authority to arbitrate when a person lives or dies—that authority belongs to God alone.

One day these doctors will stand before God and give their account for supporting the murder of tiny, helpless, “fearfully and wonderfully made” image-bearers,” he warned. “As our culture fights for the right to end lives, may we as the people of God stand on the authority of his Word and proclaim the life-saving message of the sanctity of every human life and the gospel of Jesus Christ that saves us for eternity.

Conversations With The Dead Through AI?: Technology Is Taking Deception To A Whole New Level

I have to wonder, when God spoke through his servants and warned generation after generation of the coming deceptions, could servants like Moses, Paul, and Peter even imagine the depth of deception this modern-day technology makes possible?

Pope Rebuked For Claiming The Heart Is Inherently Good: ‘Jesus Taught To The Contrary’

Evangelical leaders have pointed out that the pontiff’s statements are contrary to the teaching of original sin, one of Christianity’s basic doctrines. “If this is true, we don’t need a Savior to die on the Cross.”

It is appropriate, then, that the statue reflects more than just the image of a man. It presents him in the context of his high calling. In it, Billy stands preaching with an open Bible in one hand as the other points to a passage in that Bible.
