    Judge says Texas can't ban Planned Parenthood

    Judge says Texas can't ban Planned Parenthood
    HOUSTON — A federal judge Monday stopped Texas from banning Planned Parenthood clinics from a state women's health program because the organization provides abortions. In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel in Austin cited evidence that the state rule excluding Planned Parenthood from the program was unconstitutional and imposed an injunction against enforcing the rule until he can hear arguments in the case.

    Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott's office appealed the injunction, which temporarily stopped 49 Planned Parenthood clinics from being removed from the state program. Planned Parenthood officials in Texas praised the judge's ruling, which they said helps protect the women they serve.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    I am willing to bet good money that this judge is far better educated than you are.

    which is their choice, certainly.

    ....not sure the state should be forced to fund them though.
    if that's going to be the case, i'm going to look for a business to set up to hold Texans hostage to being my customers.... which seem to be a trend in this country.

    Good luck with that business

    What PP does is provide things like pap smears and breast cancer screenings.
