Several states have tried to cut off Planned Parenthood's funding through similar laws, but have had limited success defending those restrictions in the courts.

“Over and over again, courts have said that states cannot block people from getting preventive health care at Planned Parenthood, and the vast majority of the American public agrees," Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said in a statement. "All women, no matter where they live, should be able to get quality, affordable health care from the health care provider they know and trust.”
