(Worthy News) - A Planned Parenthood affiliate received both good news and bad news Monday in its Medicaid funding battles, with a federal judge temporarily requiring Louisiana to fund the abortion provider while a Texas inspector general's office decided to cut off the group.

In Baton Rouge, U.S. District Judge John W. deGravelles ruled that Louisiana cannot suspend Medicaid payments to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast and ordered the state to provide funding for at least another 14 days while evidentiary hearings are scheduled.
