Texas sues Planned Parenthood over $10M in Medicaid payments

Source: AP

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas wants Planned Parenthood to return more than $10 million in payments for low-income patients under a lawsuit filed Thursday, years after Republican leaders moved to cut off Medicaid dollars to the abortion provider.

Planned Parenthood called the lawsuit “another political attack" in Texas, where most abortions have been banned since September under a new law that the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed to remain in effect.

The money Texas is seeking to recoup from Planned Parenthood did not pay for abortion services — which don't receive public funds — but did cover cancer screenings, birth control access and other health services. Planned Parenthood has previously put the number of low-income patients it served in Texas under the program at 11,000.

Republicans across the U.S. launched efforts to defund Planned Parenthood in 2015 over secretly recorded and heavily edited videos taken by anti-abortion activists. Texas health officials accused Planned Parenthood officials of making misrepresentations to investigators and began the process of removing its clinics from the Medicaid program.

2. The GOP is trying everywhere they can, to make back the money they lost on tfg's loss.

Remember: tfg kept asking for money even after he lost. And many of them were giving it.
Now they want it back, but they are going to squeeze it out of the poor and middleclass.

3. Of course they provide no alternative Healthcare to that which PP provides.

Forcing women to have babies with no guarantees of healthcare is abominable.

5. healthcare for women and children in Texas is atrocious

many articles about it. Number one in maternal deaths in America. A failed state.

All women in Texas should sue the state, but Texas Jesus says no, just pray.

6. Banning future abortions,

And prosecuting past care for cancer and birth control. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Secret recordings doesn't exactly sound legal. Warrant?
