Planned Parenthood files suit against state of Texas

(KYTX) - Planned Parenthood is suing the state of Texas days after the state barred the family provider from state Women's Health Programs.

Planned Parenthood filed a suit Friday claiming that the ruling is invalid under state law.

That law says that decisions made by Texas' Women's Health Program is to be approved by the federal government, not state.

Planned Parenthood says if they continue to be banned from the program, it would jeopardize health care for tens of thousands of women across the state.
