Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood on Thursday to recover more than $10 million in taxpayer funds that the abortion chain received after the state defunded it in 2016.

Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas continued to collect money from the Texas Medicaid program from 2016 to 2021 while it challenged the defunding action in court, according to the lawsuit. However, the abortion chain ultimately lost its case.

Now, Paxton said the law requires Planned Parenthood to return that money, approximately $10 million in taxpayer dollars.

“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.”

Why are ANY tax dollars going to people who KILL babies? Saving lives is HEALTH CARE, killing them is NOT!

Thank you, AG Ken Paxton! It is hard to believe they were ever allowed tax-payer money for killing innocent babies. Keep Texas accountable!

It’s a sorry administration that must be sued before obeying a court order. And make no mistake about the fact that Planned Parenthood functions as a government agency. It owes the money. It has been legally advised of the debt. It should pay the debt or states should forcibly take charge and disperse all the ill gotten funds.
