(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Arguments are being made today about an Indiana state law cutting off Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood of Indiana.
The law stopping funding for organizations that provide abortions went into effect last month after passing the Indiana General Assembly and then signed by the governor.
Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union then filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction on the law, claiming it is unconstitutional. The law stops $1.4 million in annual funding to the organization.
An U.S. District Court judge will hear from lawyers with Planned Parenthood and the Indiana Attorney General.
Last week, federal Medicaid officials said Indiana’s law violates Medicaid law.
The judge hearing the case has said he will issue an opinion by July 1.
