Holy Writ Writer! God Loves Planned Parenthood.

Breaking News. Good news. Texas cannot exclude Planned Parenthood from the Women’s Health Program. It’s un-freekin-constitutional.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal judge on Monday stopped Texas from preventing Planned Parenthood from getting state funds through the Women’s Health Program.

U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel in Austin ruled there is sufficient evidence that a law banning Planned Parenthood from the program is unconstitutional. He imposed an injunction against enforcing it until he can hear full arguments.

Judge Yeakel is a University of Texas grad and was appointed to the federal bench by George W Bush. So, I don’t want to hear any liberal Yankee activist judge chatter.

Yeakel wrote —

The court is particularly influenced by the potential for immediate loss of access to necessary medical services by several thousand Texas women,” Yeakel wrote in his ruling. “The record before the court at this juncture reflects uncertainty as to the continued viability of the Texas Women’s Health Program

Now this is only temporary until there’s a full trial in his court, but it seems to me that he’s pretty much made up his mind.

Did a mention that he’s a Bush appointee? You know, George W Bush.

Damn conservative judges are gonna make Rick Perry have to secede from the union.

Thanks to Kyle and David for the heads up.

  1. Great news for Texas women!

  2. Yahoo! I feel better already! Take that, Gov. Perry and the regressives.

  3. Marge Wood says:

    Wonder what’s gonna happen next. I wanna go sit on a stump somewhere where I can’t see yard signs or stupidity. Of course then I’d have to miss JJTWMDBS and I can’t get through the day without it. You think Perry will find a way to lose face gracefully about this? I keep wishing he’d get a job as a truck driver.

  4. Yeah, but Icky and friends have already said they ain’t going to anyway (Because Life is to important to let poor people live, I guess). Or because power and getting your way means more than infant mortality rates.

  5. Helen Wheels says:

    This is great news. I wonder if Perry will follow through on his threat to cancel the whole program.

  6. Good for Texas Woman – Ricky can go away and hide under his RePiggery Regressive Rock.

  7. There are sane men after all then. I was beginning to doubt it.

  8. 1toughlady says:

    I bet the appellate courts overturn Judge Yeakel, but I still think it’s a fantastic finger in Perry’s eye! Luv that judge!

  9. Corinne Sabo says:

    Perry can succeed if he wants to, but can’t tke Texas with him. Maybe he should just to stand on a sandbar in the middle of th Rio Grande and declare himself a nation.

  10. m in El Paso says:

    Best news for Texas women that I’ve heard in a long while!

  11. fenway fran says:

    I just heard this on NPR. I knew you’d be tickled. Made my day, too!

  12. VeeGee in VT says:

    Good new for Texas and good for the rest of us, too.

    This is good news. There is a PP Clinic here in Abilene… no abortions performed there…. yet there is always at least one woman beating the street out in front with her signs… sometimes they are handmade, sometimes they are some of the “fetus in a trashbag” varieties from some official Right to Life group. Sometimes she has picket buddies. My sister says she’s been there for years. She’s there in the heat, the wind, and the storms. When she gets tired, or hot, she kneels and prays. With commitment like that, no telling what some of that group will do next… I mean they shot Dr. Tiller at church, while he was greeting and ushering on a Sunday morning.

    I had a neighbor in Denver who volunteered weekly at a PP Clinic. She performed exams, no abortions. We started getting the picket lines in our cul de sac every Saturday morning for months, but finally between the neighbors banding together and the police dept, we pretty much made life so miserable for them, they gave it up… or it could have been the start of winter… whatever. We laughed about hell freezing over. The doc moved to a gated community; we lost a good neighbor, but we didn’t miss the ruckus. Interesting how it was usually white males carrying the fetus pictures and being obnoxious. I mean, we had neighborhood meetings with a police rep about stray bullets while working in your yard, keeping children from riding bicycles in our general area, bringing your pets indoors. It was awful. Those people are batshit crazy, and very committed. Could be very interesting.
