THE CULTURE WARS ARE A ROUT:
Planned Parenthood defunded in Kansas as the abortion business drops lawsuit (DUSTIN SIGGINS, May 12, 2014, LifeSiteNews.com)
Posted by Orrin Judd at May 12, 2014 6:49 PMThe nation's largest abortion clinic has dropped its lawsuit over whether a state can deny funding to abortion clinics.On Friday, Planned Parenthood stopped suing the state of Kansas after it was ordered to pay $1,300 to cover part of the cost of the state's defense. The ruling was made by a three-judge panel in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.It is unusual for government agencies in public lawsuits to ask for reimbursement of costs when it prevails in litigation. However, according to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Steven Haden, "Kansas is showing good stewardship with taxpayer dollars."
