Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) has canceled a contract that provides Planned Parenthood with state Medicaid funds.
Medicaid, the joint federal and state health insurance program for the poor, represents a major source of the group’s government funding, at about 75 percent nationwide.
In a statement, Jindal said that under his state's contract with the pro-abortion rights organization, “either party can choose to cancel the contract at will after providing written notice.”
The state says it has given 30 days notice to Planned Parenthood, which is under fire after a series of undercover videos showing officials from the group discussing fetal tissue.
