  • Jennifer McKenna-Morbelli’s death after abortion was covered by News 12 Long Island.
  • A 16-year-old girl in Texas is suing her parents for allegedly trying to force her into an abortion.
  • A federal judge has blocked Arizona’s attempt to prevent Planned Parenthood from getting Medicaid funds:

    In an 11-page ruling, Judge Neil Wake [a G.W. Bush appointee] said legislation approved last year violates federal laws which say that those enrolled in the Medicaid program are entitled to get their services from any qualified medical provider.

    He said there was no evidence presented that Planned Parenthood is not qualified to offer family planning services. Instead, Wake said, the law is simply an attempt by legislators to prevent Planned Parenthood from getting any federal or state funds, no matter for what they are used.
