Columbia, S.C., Aug 2, 2018 / 12:05 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Planned Parenthood has filed a lawsuit challenging a South Carolina executive order barring Medicaid funds from going toward any health services at abortion clinics.
The executive order, issued last month by Gov. Henry McMaster, has drawn support from pro-life advocates.
“We commend Gov. McMaster for not only keeping his promise to protect innocent human life in South Carolina but also keeping his promise to taxpayers of South Carolina who should not be forced to fund agencies that destroy human life,” said Lisa Van Riper, president of South Carolina Citizens for Life, according
