Judge Overturns State's Anti-Planned Parenthood Law

This is good news of course. if you look at the anti abortion asshat they only see pP as an abortion provider and nothing else. Of course all of these clinics that provide for the poor will start popping up. Just like in Texas.

A federal judge overturned a state law in Arizona on Friday that banned Planned Parenthood from contracting with Medicaid. "A state may not restrict a beneficiary's right to select any qualified provider for reasons wholly unrelated to the provider's ability to deliver Medicaid services," U.S. District Judge Neil Wake wrote in the ruling. The law, passed by Republican legislators in Arizona in May 2012, blocked Medicaid family planning funds from flowing to any health organization that provides abortions. It effectively prevented thousands of low-income Medicaid recipients in Arizona from choosing Planned Parenthood as a health and family planning provider. A nearly identical law in Indiana was struck down by a federal appeals court in October, because federal Medicaid law says that states cannot discriminate against an otherwise qualified provider because it offers a legal medical service. Susan B. Anthony List, a national anti-abortion organization, expressed deep disappointment with the judge's decision in Arizona. “Judge Wake’s ruling thwarts the will of Arizona taxpayers to stop funding big abortion businesses such as Planned Parenthood," SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement Monday. "As a result, funds will be reduced for agencies that provide whole women’s health care."

LOL at "big abortion businesses". They make it seem like all Planned Parenthood does is churn out abortion after abortion. The fact that Planned Parenthood offers basic medical care, cancer screenings, birth control, etc. seems to be lost on these whacks. Do they even know that not all Planned Parenthoods perform abortions? Do they know that hospitals are probably the #1 abortion provider in the US? Better stop funding and Medicaid money for hospitals now. :roll:

Edited for sense.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
