Score One for the Good Guys

AUSTIN, Texas –  Texas will be able to cut off state funding to Planned Parenthood, at least for now, after a federal appeals court lifted an order that had blocked a new law banning funds to organizations linked to abortion providers from taking effect.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled that the state can turn off the funding spigot pending trial, though Texas intends to continue funding its broader program to provide women access to health care. The high-profile dispute has pitted the state of Texas against both Planned Parenthood and the Obama administration.
