A FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS OHIO MUST CONTINUE PROVIDING CERTAIN FUNDING TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD WHILE HE WEIGHS A CHALLENGE TO A STATE LAW


A FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS OHIO MUST CONTINUE PROVIDING CERTAIN FUNDING TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD WHILE HE WEIGHS A CHALLENGE TO A STATE LAW THAT WAS TO GO INTO EFFECT TODAY THAT PREVENTS PUBLIC MONEY FROM GOING TO THE ORGANIZATION. U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE MICHAEL BARRETT GRANTED A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER TODAY BLOCKING THE STATE FROM ENFORCING THAT PART OF THE LAW. THE LAW TARGETS MONEY THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD GETS THROUGH OHIO'S HEALTH DEPARTMENT. THAT MONEY IS MOSTLY FEDERAL AND SUPPORTS INITIATIVES THAT PROVIDE HIV TESTS, CANCER SCREENINGS AND OTHER EDUCATION AND PREVENTION SERVICES. THE STATE'S NEW LAW WITHHOLDS SUCH FUNDING TO AGENCIES THAT PERFORM OR PROMOTE ABORTIONS. PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUED, CALLING THE LAW UNCONSTITUTIONAL
