Aug. 26 (UPI) -- South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster issued an executive order Friday, blocking public funding for physicians or medical practices affiliated with abortion clinics.The order directed state agencies to stop providing state or local funds through grants, contracts, state-administered federal funds or other forms to physicians or medical practices that affiliate with abortion clinics."There are a variety of agencies, clinics, and medical entities in South Carolina that receive taxpayer funding to offer important women's health and family planning services without performing abortions," McMaster said in a statement. "Taxpayer dollars must not directly or indirectly subsidize abortion providers like Planned Parenthood."McMaster's order also directed the South Carolina Medicaid agency to request the federal government exclude abortion clinics from the state's Medicaid provider network.
