Federal court orders Utah to fund Planned Parenthood

(AP) SALT LAKE CITY — A federal appeals court on Wednesday put an emergency hold on Utah’s move to defund the state Planned Parenthood chapter.

The decision by the Denver-based 10th Circuit Court of Appeals allows federal money to temporarily keep flowing to the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah while the court considers whether to order a longer hold.

Republican Gov. Gary Herbert wants to end $275,000 in contracts with Planned Parenthood for sex education and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
