South Carolina Just Dealt Planned Parenthood a DEVASTATING BLOW!

The Governor of South Carolina just dealt a devastating blow to the abortion industry in his state.
Governor Henry McMaster just halted all funding to abortion clinics and anyone affiliated with abortions.
As if that’s not good enough, he took it a step further, by not allowing any abortions using Medicaid.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued an executive order Friday that eliminates all state and local funding to health centers and providers affiliated with abortion clinics.
According to a press release from the governor’s office, McMaster’s executive order has:
Directed state agencies to cease providing state or local funds, whether via grant, contract, state-administered federal funds, or any other form, to any physician or professional medical practice affiliated with an abortion clinic and operating concurrently with – and in the same physical, geographic location or footprint as – an abortion clinic.
Additionally the Republican governor has directed the state’s health department to apply for waivers from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to exclude abortion clinics from South Carolina’s list of Medicaid providers. The state will make available a “user-friendly list” of all qualified women’s health providers that do not perform abortions and are located within a 25-mile radius of abortion clinics that are no longer on the state’s Medicaid provider list.
“There are a variety of agencies, clinics, and medical entities in South Carolina that receive taxpayer funding to offer important women’s health and family planning services without performing abortions,” said the governor. “Taxpayer dollars must not directly or indirectly subsidize abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.”
The Post and Courier notes that three clinics perform elective abortions in South Carolina – including one that is a Planned Parenthood affiliate.
Planned Parenthood condemned the move by McMaster on Twitter:
