Since the Planned Parenthood scandal rocked the nation when it was revealed that the abortion provider profited from the sale of aborted fetuses, states across the country have launched investigations and in some cases have stopped all funding to Planned Parenthood.
On Monday, Texas became the latest state to say ‘enough is enough’. According to the Blaze, state officials sent a letter to all Planned Parenthood affiliates throughout the state. The letter stated that Planned Parenthood was in the process of being dropped from the states Medicaid program because they are liable for “serious Medicaid violations.”
In the letter, Texas states what many people around the country have already concluded: “Your termination and that of all your affiliates will not affect access to care in this state because there are thousands of alternate providers in Texas, including federally qualified health centers, Medicaid-certified rural health clinics, and other health care providers across the state that participate in the Texas Women’s Health Program and Medicaid.”
Planned Parenthood still denies that it participated in any illegal actions. However, they have previously apologized for the videos and have recently announced they will not accept any ‘reimbursements’ for ‘fetal tissue donations’.
