“AUSTIN, Texas — Texas can cut off funding to Planned Parenthood’s family planning programs for poor women, a state judge ruled Monday.”

Does this mean that Texas cannot cut off funding to Planned Parenthood’s family planning programs for rich women?

Finally, some good news. Glad my tax dollars won’t be helping to fund this monstrosity.

That’ll last about fifteen minutes .. which is about fourteen minutes & forty five seconds longer than that judge had for holding any reasonable expectation of upward judicial mobility.

Yeah, I know. But considering this was from the Associated Presstitutes, you know they had to get their little dig in. Us hateful conservatives wanted to “oppress poor women.”

The entire family of entitlement recipients should be drug tested also, just as employees are.

Another hearing is scheduled on Jan. 11 under a different Judge. Not sure what all this means just yet.

It means that planned parenthood hasn’t found the right judge. The, like the Democrats, go from judge to judge until they get one of theirs.

True judge shopping goes on but I’m not sure if this is the same level or a step higher up the appelate ladder. That line was used in the article but didn’t specify which court.

They can go to another state or pay their own way.
