It would be nice if a Federal court ruled that the US can cut off funds to Texas.

Where does the US get the funds in the 1st place?

"A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled that Kansas can strip two Planned Parenthood clinics of federal family planning money while the organization moves forward with its legal challenge of a state law it says is retaliation for its advocacy of abortion rights.

Kansas is among several conservative states that have sought in recent years to strip Planned Parenthood of funding. At issue in Tuesday's ruling is money distributed to states under Title X, a federally financed family planning program. The Title X money targets low-income individuals seeking reproductive services such as birth control, pregnancy testing, cancer screenings and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. It cannot be used for abortions." March 25, 2014 5:25PM ET

I do not understand the Republicans. They seem to want more children brought into the world that in 18 years will vote against them.
