Henry McMaster punishes women further by forcing medical facilities to stop working with abortion providers
Columbia — Donald Trump’s closest ally in South Carolina, Henry McMaster, signed an executive order punishing the state’s women further.
The executive order requires state run medical facilities to cease doing business of any kind with abortion providers.
The state earlier ended its reimbursements to Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood swiftly slammed the out of touch governor:
“Planned Parenthood South Atlantic has provided annual exams, birth control, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and lifesaving cancer screenings- such as clinical breast exams and Pap tests- to women, men and young people in South Carolina for over 50 years.
Planned Parenthood does not receive Title X funding or any other grants through the state of South Carolina. We do serve patients who rely on Medicaid for their insurance, and provide basic healthcare to men and women who participate in the state health insurance plan.
Given this clear-cut information, today’s executive order issued by Governor McMaster is simply a political stunt. While he spends taxpayers’ time and money on scoring political points, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic will continue to focus on providing the wide-range of accessible, affordable health care services that our patients, and his constituents, rely on.”
