They argued against the governor’s decision to cut off Medicaid money for the organization. They argue the action cuts access to health care for the poor.
Governor Bobby Jindal ordered a stop to Medicaid payments after videos were recently released by an anti-abortion organization. They claimed Planned Parenthood was selling body parts from aborted fetuses.
Governor Jindal’s office set up a screen at the mansion, playing those undercover videos as the Planned Parenthood protest persisted. Governor Jindal was not at the mansion.
