Alabama became the third state in a week to pull state funding for Planned Parenthood on Thursday.
Gov. Robert Bentley, a medical doctor, tweeted that life from "conception to birth and beyond" is important to him.
"I respect human life, and I do not want Alabama to be associated with an organization that does not," the two-term Republican tweeted.
The governor's office released a statement saying that the Alabama Medicaid Agency will terminate its provider contract with Planned Parenthood with a 15-day notice. If Planned Parenthood opposes the decision, the nonprofit has 60 days to apply for a fair hearing.
"The deplorable practices at Planned Parenthood have been exposed to Americans. I've terminated any association with the organization in AL," Bentley said in a follow-up tweet.
