On Wednesday U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson, the same judge who overturned an Alabama law that required abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital,
ordered the state to immediately restore Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.

In August, Gov. Robert Bentley had written
“The deplorable practices at Planned Parenthood have been exposed to Americans, and I have decided to stop any association with the organization in Alabama. As a doctor and Alabama’s governor, the issue of human life, from conception to birth and beyond, is extremely important. I respect human life and do not want Alabama to be associated with an organization that does not.”

Days later Planned Parenthood Southeast and a Medicaid recipient (identified only as
“Jane Doe”) filed lawsuit. Planned Parenthood Southeast operates two clinics–one in
Birmingham and one in Mobile.
