Approximately $100 million was allocated for a teen pregnancy program as part of ObamaCare, and a portion of those monies flowed to Planned Parenthood.

Jim Sedlak of American Life League, who has tracked the pregnancy program for years, tells OneNewsNow that it was a failure after four years.

"And so last year the Trump administration announced that rather than go for the full five years and waste more money," he recalls, "that they were going to give all of the people who got grants, which included Planned Parenthood, one year to close down their programs."

That meant the program is ending this June, and now Planned Parenthood and several other groups are filing suit.   

Sedlak says the lawsuit is really about "greedy Planned Parenthood" demanding more taxpayers' dollars for a program that didn't work.
