Planned Parenthood Wins Extended Ban on Texas Funding Cuts

Planned Parenthood won an extension of an order blocking Texas from making cuts in funding to its clinics because the organization provides abortion services.
Texas officials were stopped by an Oct. 26 temporary restraining order issued by Judge Amy Clark Meachum in Austin from eliminating public funds for the 49 Planned Parenthood clinics in the state that don’t provide abortions.
After a hearing yesterday in Austin, U.S. District Judge Stephen Yelenosky said he is extending Meachum’s order.
Yelenosky said that by labeling all Planned Parenthood clinics as being affiliated with abortion providers, state officials are using a definition of “affiliate” that goes against the law on funding for the Women’s Health Program written by the Legislature.

No surprise here. Greg Abbott said Texas will immediately appeal the decision.
