UPDATE 1/11, 6:30p: Great news! A judge has ruled that Texas can continue defunding Planned Parenthood while the lawsuit is in progress!
by Hans Johnson
Now that the State of Texas is taking over the remaining 90 percent of the Women Health Program’s $40 million budget from the federal government, it is excluding funds for abortion performing facilities. A request by Planned Parenthood for a temporary restraining order has been denied because it “failed to demonstrate that it would suffer an immediate and irreparable injury from being excluded from the program.”
The ongoing court battle continues tomorrow, January 11.
