Today, the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC), led by President and General Counsel John Stemberger, announced that a series of rallies will be held in front of local Planned Parenthood offices all across Florida tomorrow, October 10, from 9 to 11 a.m. ET. The rallies, as part of a statewide campaign – on behalf of thousands of pro-life Floridians – will include a call to Gov. Rick Scott (R) to fully defund Planned Parenthood in the state, and redirect those funds to the more than 600 community health clinics in Florida.
This Saturday, October 10, from 9-11AM local time, pro-life Americans all across the country but specifically in Florida will gather together to protest Planned Parenthood’s barbaric harvesting of aborted baby parts and the even greater crime of the babies killed in the process. Over 250 of these protests have been organized nationwide – including some international protests. 13 of these protests have been planned in cities across Florida.
States not only have the obligation, but the legal right to terminate the Medicaid contracts of those healthcare providers who are no longer deemed qualified. In fact, the powers of a state Medicaid program to exclude a provider are broader than those of the federal government. A state Medicaid program may exclude a health care provider from participation “for any reason for which the Secretary could exclude the [provider] from participation” (i.e., the grounds for discretionary exclusion enumerated above) “[i]n addition to any other authority.” 42 U.S.C. § 1396a(p)(1) (emphasis added).
