Victory. This is good news folks.

A federal appeals court ruled today that Kansas can refuse to fund Planned Parenthood with federal money. Planned Parenthood will, of course, appeal because there’s only one thing that they love more than dead babies and that’s dead babies on the taxpayer dime.

In 2011, a district court judge blocked enforcement of the state law because…well because he has a black robe and he said so…so there. He actually ruled that it was unconstitutional to punish Planned Parenthood. Only to the left is not receiving taxpayer money a punishment.

The appeals court panel, which ruled 2-1 in favor of the state today, told Planned Parenthood that not receiving federal funding is not a violation of their free speech rights. I know, right?
