Federal judge stops Texas from banning funds to Planned Parenhood

Freak Out Nation - A federal judge on Monday stopped Texas from preventing Planned Parenthood from getting State funds through the Women’s Health Program.  The Republican-controlled Legislature passed a law forbidding state agencies from providing funds to any organization affiliated with abortion providers even though eight Planned Parenthood clinics do not provide abortions — so they sued the State. According to Planned Parenthood via Think Progress, “over 40 percent of women who received services through the Women’s Health Program chose to rely on a Planned Parenthood health center for Women’s Health Program services.”
