Federal Court Blocks Herbert’s Directive on Planned Parenthood

Utah State Capitol 08The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals granted a preliminary injunction on Tuesday to Planned Parenthood in their lawsuit against the Utah Department of Health and Gov. Gary Herbert.

The injunction blocks Herbert’s decision from last year to stop federal funds to Utah’s Planned Parenthood organization. Herbert’s decision came after several clandestinely recorded videos purportedly showing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating to sell fetal tissue. Those videos were later discredited as they were shown to be heavily edited.
