2 states sued for not paying for abortions for poor

, : 2 states sued for not paying for abortions for poor. Sun: 3a-3a

Planned Parenthood clinics in Michigan and in Montana filed lawsuits in Kalamazoo and Billings, respectively, requesting the federal judges to direct the states to pay for abortion in cases of rape and incest. Officials in Michigan and Montana as well as Arkansas, Kentucky, North and South Dakota, and Utah refuse to abide by the rule, which took affect March 1994 and calls for states that receive Medicaid funds for health care of the poor to pay for abortions of poor women whose pregnancy was result of rape or incest. State officials argue that, in December 1993, Congress made using Medicaid funds to pay for abortion i cases of rape or incest optional. It appears that, in the short term, the Clinton administration does not plan to object strongly to the states' refusal to pay. Yet, Planned Parenthood Federation of America is not willing to wait. The 2 lawsuits brought by the clinics in Michigan and Montana maintain that the law requires any state receiving Medicaid funds to pay for those abortions for which federal funds are available. Regardless of the states' unwillingness to pay for such abortions, Planned Parenthood clinics accept incest and rape cases anyway. They will receive private funds to pay for their abortion care. Some officials in Colorado and Oklahoma are also thinking about resisting payment for abortions for incest and rape cases.
