WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge has ordered Kansas to resume funding Planned Parenthood on the same quarterly schedule that existed before a new state law stripped it of all federal funding for non-abortion services.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten on Tuesday rejected the state's request that it pay Planned Parenthood monthly and only for services provided while it appeals his Aug. 1 injunction blocking the law.

Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri said last week it would stop providing medical services Friday at its clinic in Hays unless it was told it would soon receive the money.

Friday also would have been last day the organization offered a sliding fee scale for low-income patients at its Wichita clinic.
