jindal-inaugJindal puts on debate game face with Planned Parenthood, Sanctuary City remarks

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is putting on his campaign game face.

Today, his Health Department issued this statement to terminate a contract with Planned Parenthood.

As he waits to hear whether he will debate with the also rans in Thursday’s upcoming Fox News presidential debate, he is engaged in an online battle with certain Sanctuary City mayors from around the nation after he stated they should be put in jail.

 Jindal is also the target of gubernatorial candidates (both republican and democratic), who complaining about his job performance.  In turn, as reported by La. Politics, they are whiners.

Here is the Louisiana Health and Hospitals revocation with Planned Parenthood and recent tweets, for good measure:

GOVERNOR JINDAL ANNOUNCES THE TERMINATION OF MEDICAID CONTRACT WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD

Today, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals informed Planned Parenthood it is exercising its right to terminate Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid provider agreement. In recent weeks, multiple videos have surfaced showing Planned Parenthood Federation of America senior personnel and other employees describing how they actively engage in illegal partial birth abortion procedures and conduct these abortions in a manner that leaves body parts intact so that they can later be sold on the open market. Since these videos have surfaced, Governor Jindal has directed DHH to investigate Planned Parenthood’s activities in Louisiana and also sent a letter to both the Louisiana Inspector General and the F.B.I. asking them to assist in the investigation.

According to the Medicaid provider contract between DHH and Planned Parenthood, along with relevant Louisiana law, either party can choose to cancel the contract at will after providing written notice.  Governor Jindal and DHH decided to give the required 30-day notice to terminate the Planned Parenthood Medicaid provider contract because Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the State of Louisiana in regards to respecting human life. Pending the ongoing investigation, DHH reserves the right to amend the cancellation notice and terminate the provider agreement immediately should cause be determined.

Governor Jindal said, “In recent weeks, it has been shocking to see reports of the alleged activities taking place at Planned Parenthood facilities across the country. Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental disrespect for human life.  It has become clear that this is not an organization that is worthy of receiving public assistance from the state.”

DHH has concerns that Planned Parenthood could be acting in violation of Louisiana law that states no person or group contracting with the state or receiving government assistance shall require or recommend that any woman have an abortion.  The state investigation into Planned Parenthood remains ongoing.

Louisiana’s Medicaid Family Planning Services program is required to provide adequate services to women across the state. Cancellation of this contract at will does not jeopardize those services in any way as Planned Parenthood is just one of many providers in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas.

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.
