A judge stepped in and blocked Texas from removing funding of Planned Parenthood within its state.
Breitbart News reports that “on the day Texas was set to end Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid funds, the abortion vendor filed an emergency lawsuit with a district court that granted a temporary restraining order against the state.”

However, Planned Parenthood’s emergency lawsuit at the eleventh hour resulted in a stunning reversal.
