Here is a Catholic News Agency story which reports that a federal appeals court has declined a rehearing for Planned Parenthood, which was trying to block Texas's effort to defund its clinics in the state.

"Today's ruling affirms yet again that in Texas the Women's Health Program has no obligation to fund Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform or promote abortion," Texas governor Rick Perry said in a statement Oct. 25.

"In Texas we choose life, and we will immediately begin defunding all abortion affiliates to honour and uphold that choice."
