Alabama Surrenders In Fight Against Planned Parenthood-State will pay Planned Parenthood's legal fee

Alabama Surrenders In Fight Against Planned Parenthood
The state will pay Planned Parenthood's legal fees after failed suit.




Alabama called off a legal battle with Planned Parenthood on Monday after a federal judge last month blocked the state from defunding the reproductive health organization's clinics amid national controversy about its handling of aborted fetal tissue.

In a joint court filing, both parties said that Alabama had resumed funding of Planned Parenthood clinics in Mobile and Birmingham, and the clinics were following state regulations.

The agreement followed an order by U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson to stop Alabama from terminating its agreement with a Planned Parenthood regional affiliate providing services under Medicaid, the federal and state healthcare program for the poor.

The state agreed to pay $51,000 in legal fees in settling the lawsuit, the Associated Press reported.

3. Paid by taxpayers, not the pandering politicians. Not all right.

They should garnishee the paychecks of Republican politicians who supported this to pay the legal fees. Then maybe this bullshit would stop.

4. i see internet memes

Is there a comprehensive list of states that have investigated PP and came up empty? Seems like at least ten so far have needlessly pissed away taxpayer money in their PP snipe hunts?
