A federal judge today blocked the implementation of a Kansas law that prevented Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funding. Agreeing that the family-planning organization would “suffer irreparable harm” while the courts decided on whether or not the law is unconstitutional, U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten ordered the state to immediately resume its support of the Kansas chapter, thereby saving one clinic from shutting its doors and protecting the access to Planned Parenthood’s health services for 5,700 patients.
