Ind. Decisions - More on "ACLU of Indiana Wins Appeal in Planned Parenthood Medicaid Case"

Updating this ILB entry, and this ILB opinion summary, both from yesterday, Niki Kelly of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has thorough coverage of yesterday's ruling, in a story headed "Planned Parenthood wins fight over funding."

Here is Indianapolis Star coverage by Jill Disis. A quote from the long story:

“This is not about an abortion case,’’ said [ACLU legal director Ken]Falk, whose organization argued the case on behalf of Planned Parenthood. “This is a case about Medicaid services — non-abortion-related services — and the attempt by the state of Indiana to punish Planned Parenthood and its clients from receiving non-abortion health services merely because Planned Parenthood, without any sort of state or federal money or any Medicaid funds, also provides abortions.”
