Federal Judge Rejects Arizona's Attempt to Cut Medicaid Funds to Planned Parenthood

The Hill - Healthwatch:  Judge tosses Arizona's anti-Planned Parenthood program, by Sam Baker:

A federal judge on Monday overturned Arizona's attempt to cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

Arizona's law, like similar statutes in other GOP-led states, sought to cut off Planned Parenthood's access to state and federal Medicaid funds. The law instead gave a preference to clinics and providers that do not also provide abortion.

Judge Neil Wake overturned the program Monday, after issuing an injunction last year that prevented the new law from taking effect while it was being challenged in court. . . .
