The state of Texas is suing Planned Parenthood in an effort to recover $10 million in Medicaid payments issued to the abortion provider since 2017. Gov. Greg Abbott first attempted to remove Planned Parenthood as a Medicaid provider in Texas in 2015. Abbott's decision followed the release of an undercover video that indicated Planned Parenthood abortion providers illegally sell fetal tissue for a profit. A Planned Parenthood lawyer says the lawsuit is "meritless" and politically motivated.
