(UNDATED) - Planned Parenthood of Indiana is preparing to make cuts in case a U.S. District Court Judge doesn't rule on a request for an injunction on a law cutting its Medicaid funding by tonight.

If there is no ruling or the request is rejected, the agency says it will stop seeing Medicaid patients that can't pay, lay off two workers, and institute a one-day furlough for all other employees.

The state's largest reproductive health care provider has been using private donations to pay for direct patient care for existing Medicaid patients since May 11th, the day after Governor Daniels signed a bill into law, which stripped Medicaid funding from PPIN.
