The abortion giant has apparently filed suit against the Lone Star State, where Republican leaders have stopped the flow of Medicaid funds to the organization.

That decision came after the bombshell videos earlier this year, including one that showed PP personnel allegedly admitting they violate federal law. 

Kyleen Wright of Texans for Life Coalition says the Texas branch of Planned Parenthood would enter a courtroom with a history of documented fraud.

Wright is likely referring to a 2013 settlement in which Planned Parenthood agreed to pay $4.3 million to the state, The Dallas Morning News reported

A whistleblower who worked in Lufkin for 10 years alleged the organization submitted misleading claims for Medicaid reimbursements, including counseling that was never done and STD/HIV testing that was never performed.

The same news story reported that a second federal court case in ongoing in which a Planned Parenthood whisteblower says the organization repeatedly visited school students to perform STD/HIV tests on them because they receive Medicaid benefits. The clinic was reimbursed approximately $200 per student. 

So Wright tells OneNewsNow she would welcome that court fight.

"My reaction is probably about what Governor Abbott's is - bring it on," she says.

By filing the lawsuit, Planned Parenthood might not realize it gives Texas the chance, in a court of law, to present evidence that the abortion giant doesn't deserve a dime of tax dollars.
