The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Arkansas can block Medicaid funds from flowing to Planned Parenthood and more recently the court refused to reconsider an appeal.

Rose Mimms of Arkansas Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that pro-lifers are "thrilled" with the ruling, because Arkansas taxpayers don't want to support the abortion giant.

Mimms says Gov. Asa Hutchinson decided to cancel the Medicaid partnership with Planned Parenthood after the Center for Medical Progress began releasing undercover videos of abortion clinic officials peddling aborted babies for profit.

"And our governor joined other governors around the country that were shocked," says Mimms, "and did not want to participate, even as a Medicaid provider, being in cahoots with Planned Parenthood in their states after finding out that Planned Parenthood was involved in the selling of baby parts for money."

There are plenty of other clinics in the state that can provide needed medical services for women - clinics that don't perform abortions, she says.
