Judge Blocks Texas from Barring Planned Parenthood from Medicaid

A federal judge blocked Texas from keeping Planned Parenthood from getting funds from Medicaid. Texas wanted to limit Planned Parenthood from Medicaid funds after a video surfaced which anti-choice activists said violated federal law. In the video, people said it looked as if Planned Parenthood was performing unsafe abortion services.

Texas is the sixth state to try and enforce punishment on Planned Parenthood for the video — which proved to be fake. Attorney General Ken Paxton said Texas plans to appeal the ruling.
