State can end nutri­tion deal

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT - Com­piled from wire re­ports

A fed­eral judge Mon­day de­nied a re­quest by Planned Par­ent­hood to tem­po­rar­ily block Ok­la­homa from ter­mi­nat­ing a con­tract with the agency to pro­vide nu­tri­tional ser­vices to low­in­come moth­ers. U.S. District Judge Stephen Friot ruled that although the state’s stated rea­sons don’t seem to be suf­fi­cient cause for end­ing agree­ments with Planned Par­ent­hood’s three Tul­saarea clin­ics that have been in place for 18 years, the group’s re­sponse to the state’s con­cerns was in­suf­fi­cient enough to war­rant end­ing the re­la­tion­ship.
