This morning, Fifth Circuit Judge Jerry Smith granted an emergency motion filed last night by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot to stay a decision yesterday by federal judge Lee Yeakal to block de-funding of Planned Parenthood affiliates by the state’s Women’s Health Program.
In granting the motion, Smith requested a response from Planned Parenthood by 5 p.m. today.
Rewire’s Texas correspondent Andrea Grimes is working on an update on the case to be published later today.
