By Steve Barnes LITTLE ROCK, Ark.

The filing in federal court in Arkansas on Monday could reverse the state's decision to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood programs in the state, lawyers for the group said on Tuesday. Governor Asa Hutchinson had ordered Planned Parenthood removed from the list of Medicaid providers after videos surfaced in July that purported to show its personnel negotiating the sale of fetal body parts for profit. The state has appealed the federal court judge's injunction involving the three women and said it acted legally in cutting off funds.
