A second federal judge appointed by pro-abortion President Barack Obama has blocked the new rules President Donald Trump put in place to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business of as much as $60 million.

As LifeNews reported, a federal judge appointed by pro-abortion President Barack Obama issued a ruling Wednesday keeping taxpayer funding flowing to Planned Parenthood by blocking a new pro-life rule from the Trump administration.

U.S. District Court Judge Stanley Bastian, an Obama appointee, issued an injunction staying the changes from taking effect while several other legal challenges proceed. His temporary block applies nationwide. Pro-abortion attorneys general in 20 states and Washington, D.C. filed the lawsuit, arguing that the rule would hurt Planned Parenthood and other abortion companies and violate the Affordable Care Act.
