Abortion giant Planned Parenthood may be forced to give up some of its treasured blood money.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit seeking to recover more than $10 million in funds that Planned Parenthood wrongfully collected from Texas Medicaid.
As LifeNews.com reports, in 2015 Texas acted to defund Planned Parenthood from its state Medicaid program "after undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress exposed unethical and potentially illegal practices involving Planned Parenthood's aborted baby body parts trade."
Planned Parenthood sued Texas and, while the lawsuit was ongoing, continued to bilk the Texas Medicaid program for millions in taxpayer dollars.
Now, Attorney General Paxton wants that money returned.
"It is unthinkable that Planned Parenthood would continue to take advantage of funding, knowing they were not entitled to keep it," Paxton said in a statement. "I will not allow them to benefit from this abhorrent conduct after they were caught violating medical standards and lying to law enforcement."
Planned Parenthood and its allies claim that defunding the abortion mill will hurt women, but nothing could be further from the truth. Here's more from LifeNews.com:
Former CEO Leana Wen said its "core mission" is aborting unborn babies. And its own annual reports show that the few actual health services that it does provide, such as birth control, cancer screenings and sterilizations, have been dropping steadily in recent years while its abortion numbers grow.
Meanwhile, community health centers outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by 20 to one across the country and provide comprehensive health care, including dozens of vital services that the abortion chain does not.
Women deserve better than Planned Parenthood. It's time for more states to follow Texas' lead!
