Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Tuesday filed a legal brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit to overturn a ruling that blocked Texas from cutting off state Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.
“Texas acted to cut off major taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood because of its repugnant conduct,” the brief states. “Clear indications of Planned Parenthood’s adjustment of abortion procedures to procure and sell fetal body parts for research should be enough to reverse a district court’s egregious ruling.”


Texas Alliance for Life reported yesterday that this same abortion chain that is currently fighting before the Supreme Court to strike down a law on abortion safety regulations has a history of failed inspections, dirty equipment, untrained staff and other health violations. (Earlier this month, Live Action News reported on this discovery here and here.) These repeated health violations among the Whole Woman’s Health chain show that there is a pattern of serious mismanagement among these Texas facilities.
