MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) Thursday terminated the state’s Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood after the legitimacy of using any taxpayer dollars to fund the abortion provider was once again called into question following the release of several videos describing its harvest and sale of aborted baby organs and body parts.

“The deplorable practices at Planned Parenthood have been exposed to Americans, and I have decided to stop any association with the organization in Alabama,” said Governor Bentley. “As a doctor and Alabama’s Governor, the issue of human life, from conception to birth and beyond, is extremely important to me. I respect human life, and I do not want Alabama to be associated with an organization that does not.”

Yellowhammer has obtained a copy of the letter sent to Planned Parenthood CEO Staci Fox Thursday afternoon.

    All states should cut off funding to Planned Parenthood. Stop killing and then slaughtering babies. And then selling them in pieces.

    Great decision Governor. I think that there are about 47 states left to remove there head from where the sun don’t shine and do the same thing.

    Now he needs to CUT Gooberment spending and stop looking for ways to raise taxes. There are way to many ‘earmarked’ expenditures in the state of Alabama and nothing is that special when it comes to stealing money from hardworking people!

    49 more states to go….wait a minute kenyan boyo will send in the gestapo to eradicate the opposition…

    Good for Bentley. Someone should maybe crush planned parenthood’s skull, but then they don’t have a brain.
