INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana won a key victory in its fight to cut off public funding for Planned Parenthood Wednesday when a federal judge refused to block a tough new abortion law from taking effect, a move that could boost Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels' image among social conservatives as he considers running for president.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt denied Planned Parenthood of Indiana's request for a temporary restraining order despite arguments that the law jeopardizes health care for thousands of women.

This is one reason why the party of the president counts — even if the president is personally a mush.
Maybe rich pro-abortion libs can now shell out the money.
Ooooh. Planned Parenthood gets smacked down by a liberal black female judge. That’s gotta hurt.
Very, VERY nice! :)
1 down, 49 to go...
I hope ObaMao gets as tormented by her appointment as George Bush Sr. got vexed from his appointment of David Souter.
Oh, this is a rich Pratt fall for Obummer. I never thought a Rat would let this one go by. Was that the shadow of a pig that just brushed by my window?
If Planned Parenthood cared so much about the health care of these women, why don't they perform their services for FREE?
Some black folks may be getting the hint that abortion is more redolent of the KKK than it is of rock ribbed conservatives.
Gotta love AP’s editorializing in this “news” story: “...despite arguments that the law jeopardizes health care for thousands of women.”
My Liberal friend posted something on Facebook this morning about Daniels signing the bill and said, “I guess fiscal conservatives just don’t care about women’s healthcare.”
I have yet to understand how they equate abortion, the killing of a human being, as healthcare.
Besides, I’m sure the Feds will pick up the difference and PP can go on with their “family planning” without missing a beat.

“I hope ObaMao gets as tormented by her appointment as George Bush Sr. got vexed from his appointment of David Souter.”
Or the epic Trojan horse appointment of Earl Warren by President Eisenhower.
Why is the court doing the people’s business?
I suspect the Earl Warren appointment was just payback for the favor.
Eisenhower apparently did express his regrets on the appointments of Warren and Brennan.
Perhaps as vividly expressed as “the biggest damnfool mistake I ever made.”. Sadly, I can’t find direct confirmation of this on the internet.
One for the road, and a very interesting counterpoint to the Community Activist of the United States’ churlish interaction with the USSCT: http://www.eisenhowermemorial.org/presidential-papers/second-term/documents/211.cfm
