Planned Parenthood clinics in Indiana are starting to turn medicare patients away.
All this comes after a court ruling.
Many think it cuts down on women's options to get checkups, but state officials say alternative providers are available.
As for the 9,300 current medicaid patients they serve, a spokesperson says they will immediately be denied some birth control methods.
Governor Daniels, who signed the bill into law, says even though Planned Parenthood may have to turn some women away, it doesn't mean they have nowhere to turn.
The President of Indiana Planned Parenthood vows she'll be back in court to fight the state's defunding law in early June.
