Planned Parenthood is again opposing reasonable regulation of abortion doctors, this time in Alaska.
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest is suing Alaska's state health commissioner over regulations that go into effect on Sunday requiring doctors who receive Medicaid payments to certify that procedures are either "medically necessary" or that the patient is a victim of rape or incest.
The national organization claims that the regulation will lower abortion access for low-income Alaskans.
Doctors who want to receive Medicaid funds for abortions will have to check a box on a form certfying one of the two qualifications.
Does Planned Parenthood practice any type of prudence? They don't seem to know when to pick a battle. It's further proof that liberal Democrats are the true extremists in the abortion debate.
