17 States Force Taxpayers to Fund Abortions. Does Yours?

While many in the media and Planned Parenthood and repeatedly insist that Americans taxpayers don’t pay for abortion, they’re keeping quite about state funding for abortion.

According to the Guttmacher Institute (GI), which once boasted ties to Planned Parenthood, 17 states use taxpayer money to fund abortion.

17 states have a policy that directs Medicaid to pay for all or most medically necessary abortions,” GI said in a document updated earlier this month. Four of the 17 states “provide such funds voluntarily,” the report’s highlights added, and thirteen states “do so pursuant to a court order.”

What is a “medically necessary abortion”? To the abortion industry, that’s code for elective abortion.

In 2015, Dr. Michael J. New, an associate scholar with the Charlotte Lozier Institute, the research arm of the Susan B. Anthony List, warned of the dangers of Medicaid expansion for that very reason:
The concern pro-lifers have with Medicaid expansion is that 17 states use tax dollars to fund elective abortion through Medicaid. There is plenty of research which shows that subsidizing abortion through Medicaid increases abortion rates. Expanding the number of women of childbearing age eligible for Medicaid would doubtlessly increase abortion numbers even more.These are the 17 states that fund abortion through Medicaid:Alaska (court order)
Arizona (court order)
California (court order)
Connecticut (court order)
Hawaii (voluntarily)
Illinois (court order)
Maryland (voluntarily)
