    Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri abandoned its legal challenge Friday to a Kansas law that strips two of its clinics of hundreds of thousands of federal taxpayer dollars.
    Kansas lawmakers had passed a bill in 2011 that required tax dollars from Title X, a federal family planning program, to first be allocated to public health departments, hospitals, and community groups that do not provide abortions.
    As Christian News reports, a federal appeals court in Denver ruled 2-1 in March that Kansas officials may strip Planned Parenthood of Title X funding, against the organization’s arguments that this violated its rights to free speech and association.

    But, RevMitchell, surely you know Republicans don't do anything about abortion...
