(Worthy News) - A federal judge late Thursday put on hold key portions of a new Florida law that would block public funding for Planned Parenthood and greatly increase inspection requirements for abortion clinics.

U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle issued his ruling just hours before the law passed by the Republican-controlled Florida legislature was to take effect.

Planned Parenthood challenged three parts of the measure Gov. Rick Scott signed into law earlier this year, including one that prevents any state or local funds from going to an organization if that organization also provides abortions. Planned Parenthood officials estimated that provision would prevent its clinics from receiving about $500,000 to pay for health care screenings and a school dropout prevention program. [ Source ]
