Kansas Appeals Clinic Funding Court Ruling

KSCB News - July 10, 2012 8:21 am

Kansas has again appealed a federal judge’s

order prohibiting the state from stripping federal family planning

funds from Planned Parenthood clinics in Wichita and Hays as well

as an unaffiliated clinic in Dodge City.

Monday’s appeal notice seeks to put both the 2011 and 2012

statutes before the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals more

quickly.

The lawsuit stems from a Kansas law requiring the state to first

allocate federal family planning money to public health departments

and hospitals, which leaves no funds for specialty clinics.

Planned Parenthood and the Dodge city Family Planning Clinic

earlier won an extension of a 2010 injunction after the Legislature

this year re-enacted those funding restrictions.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten found last month that the

statute unconstitutionally bars the plaintiffs from eligibility.
