NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana — A federal appeals court has ruled that Texas and Louisiana can cut off funding to Planned Parenthood.

Monday’s decision by a majority of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reverses earlier rulings in two longstanding fights over abortion.

Opponents of legal abortion have long sought to deny federal Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood because some Planned Parenthood affiliates perform them.

Abortion rights supporters and advocates for women’s health have argued that cutting off Medicaid funding for the organization would also reduce poor women’s access to a variety of vital non-abortion health services.

  1. sure you do mark, sure. I really could care less if they wanna kill babies as long as I’m not paying for it same as gender “reassignment” I don’t ask you to buy my guns. I doubt your stat of 98% coming from donors or else they wouldn’t be up in arms as much when threatened with federal defunding. Sanger was racist in every sense of the word so it’s fitting you support her miss turner

        1. comrade turner is a man? Who knew. turner says he got gonorrhea from a tractor. But like you said mag, comrad turner is a master at telling stories. He even told a story about alberto being human. What liar he is.
