Planned Parenthood today lost its latest appeal in its fight to receive state funding as part of the Women’s Health Program.  State District Judge Steve Yelenosky said he denied the injunction because Planned Parenthood would likely lost at trial. 

In a statement, Health and Human Services Commissioner Kyle Janek applauded the ruling, saying:

“This allows us to continue to provide important family planning and preventive care to low-income women and fully enforce state law. We’ve got the Texas Women’s Health Program up and running, and we’ll continue to provide help to any woman who needs to find a new doctor or clinic.”
