Planned Parenthood of Indiana will use donated funds to extend care to patients for another week.

The organization lost much of its money through an anti-abortion law recently signed by Governor Mitch Daniels. But Planned Parenthood has received donations from across the country, and will use the money to continue operations until May 21.

Organization officials say they serve about 9,300 Medicaid patients at 28 clinics in the Hoosier state. It will not accept new Medicaid patients during the court battle over the new law and some services will not be performed.

A federal judge has already refused to issue a restraining order on the law.
