(avec des arguments faux-culs) (26/12/12)
OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec 24 (Reuters) - A federal judge on Monday rejected Planned Parenthood’s bid to stop Oklahoma from ending its contract with the women’s health organization to provide food vouchers and counseling to poor mothers in the Tulsa area.
U.S. District Judge Stephen Friot of the Western District of Oklahoma ruled that Planned Parenthood failed to prove its contract with the state’s department of health was terminated for political reasons related to the group’s support of abortion rights. The state contract ends on Jan. 1.
The judge said Planned Parenthood’s performance shortfalls - mostly drops in caseload - did not themselves seem to be problems that could lead to a cut in ties.

(CNN) — A Texas judge denied a Planned Parenthood request for a temporary restraining order Monday that would have extended the organization’s ability to participate in the state’s revamped Women’s Health Program.
A law going into effect Tuesday requires the state to fully fund women’s health clinics with the exception of those that are affiliated with abortion providers. Previously, such establishments obtained 90% of their money through the Social Security Administration and other federal funding.

PHOENIX - Attorneys for the state and abortion foes are asking a federal appeals court to let it cut off federal and state funding for Planned Parenthood because the agency also offers abortions.
In legal briefs filed with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the lawyers contend a trial judge erred last year when he said a new state statute aimed at Planned Parenthood apparently violates federal laws.
U.S. District Judge Neil Wake ordered the state to continue allowing the organization to get family planning funds while the case goes to trial.
But Steven Aden, an attorney with the privately funded Alliance Defending Freedom that is helping the state defend the law, said allowing the injunction to remain in place “would frustrate the public’s interest, expressed through its elected representatives, in ensuring that taxpayer dollars do not directly or indirectly support abortions.”
