In other news from Indiana, a federal appeals court has blocked a state effort to deny Medicaid funds to the reproductive services group Planned Parenthood. On Tuesday, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Planned Parenthood’s services cannot be cut simply because it also provides abortions. Critics had warned the move would have left thousands of low-income Indiana residents without medical services.
