What About the "irreparable harm" Planned parenthood Has Done to Unborn Babies?

Planned Parenthood in Kansas is having a hissie fit because the state of Kansas is refusing to hand over money to them after a judge temporarily enjoining a new state provision prioritizing family planning funds to non-abortion agencies.
As reported by LifeNews "U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten issued an injunction preventing the state from enforcing the law after Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri argued that it would suffer irreparable harm if the law was allowed to stand and that it would be forced to close one or more of its facilities because Kansas would direct hundreds of thousands of taxpayer funds to non-abortion medical clinics that provide the same services without also destroying the lives of women and unborn children in abortions." (emphasis mine)
Did you get that, their loss of money will cause them irreperable harm. But what about those lives they destroyed when they murdered unborn babies as well as the emotional harm done to the women who had the abortions?
I will admit that from PP's point of view, the loss of money to underwrite their abortion pipeline will cause them harm. But only from their point of view. Given what has gone on in Texas with that state's defunding of PP, as well as defunding elsewhere, they know they will have to close one of their 2 non-abortion sites that they use as a pipeline to feed the abortion mill in Overland Park. I am willing to bet it will be the Hays site as Wichita has a higher number of women it can lure in & victimize.
As for why PP isn't getting any money, the answer is simple, according to Kansans for Life legislative director Kathy Ostrowski they have NO current contracts with the state of Kansas that would require payments. No contracts mean their are none “to be restored by Marten, and a judge hasn’t the authority to create contracts between the state and private business.”
Of course that doesn't mean PP won't try & force Kansas to give them money.
After Marten's injunction was issued the Kansas Attorney General’s office filed an appellate brief in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals asking it to halt the decision placing a temporary hold on enforcing the new law de-funding Planned Parenthood.
In respose to the PP lawsuit, Kansas argued that it has the right to do so based on the 10th Amendment which they say allows it to determine tax funding. Kansas also argued that “The proposed injunction would commandeer one of the State’s agencies, forcing the State to cancel past contracts and enter into new ones selected by the Court. The proposed injunction would violate the State’s sovereignty and unconstitutionally replace the State’s discretion with the Court’s judgment.”
I suspect that is exactly what PP wants to Court to do. As I said before, PP knows they are losing support with the "People of the United States" & that the legislatures are following the will of the people. So they want to have the court stage a coup & undermine not only the 10th Amendment but do even more damage to the Contact clause (Article I, section 10, clause 1) as well.
The battles on the state level will eventually reach the Supreme Court. & when that point is reached we better hope that the Court has enough Justices willing to use original intent. This is another reason why we need to get Obama out before he can make any more appointments of judges who see the Constitution as a living document that can be changed at will rather than a document that was intended to put absolute limits on what the Federal Government can or can't do.
