Texas Is Kicking Planned Parenthood Out of Medicaid. We Are Not Powerless


Don’t mess with Texas — that’s the message Planned Parenthood is hearing loud and clear as they contend with being kicked out of the Lone Star state’s Medicaid program.

Since 2015, Texas has been fighting to disqualify Planned Parenthood from Medicaid, when the undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) published evidence of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast scheming to violate federal laws by changing abortion procedures to procure “intact fetal cadavers” and selling the body parts of aborted children as “a matter of line items.” 

But Planned Parenthood concocted all sorts of reasons why it should be allowed to keep raking in taxpayer funding, and five years of legal battles later, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals recently issued an 11—5 ruling on November 23rd, 2020, that ultimately put the final nail in Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid funding coffin. The abortion behemoth was scheduled to lose funding on February 3rd but has already filed a last-ditch lawsuit and a Texas district judge temporarily blocked the state from withdrawing taxpayer funding. 

The fact that Planned Parenthood is subsidized by taxpayers anywhere to begin with is mind-boggling. The abortion Goliath, according to its own annual report, kills 947 children a day. That’s analogous to four dozen kindergarten classrooms full of children, snuffed out by one catastrophically violent organization, day after day. 

Sit with that thought for a minute, and then consider the fact that the organization takes in $616 million in annual taxpayer funding, all while openly and proudly butchering our children en masse.

There is no moral or rational explanation for the killing or for the taxpayer funding, and my home state of Texas has been contending with the schizophrenia of both for many years. Despite the legion schemes deployed by Big Abortion to thwart pro-life defunding efforts, Texas never backed down — and their persistence is a cause for hope to the rest of the nation.
