STATES THAT FUND ABORTION THROUGH MEDICAID
Medicaid is jointly funded by the federal government and individual state governments. States can choose to pay for abortion services using their own Medicaid funds, but only 17 states do, and in 11 of them it's the result of a court order. Arizona and Illinois are in violation of their court orders, bringing the actual total down to 15 states.
