(NEWSER) – Texas announced Monday that it was cutting off Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood clinics following undercover videos featuring discussions about fetal tissue, potentially triggering a federal court fight like one unfolding in neighboring Louisiana. Planned Parenthood affiliates statewide were told in a letter they were being cut off because they were potentially “liable, directly or by affiliation, for a series of serious Medicaid program violations” highlighted in the videos. The five-page letter from state health officials said the organization was “no longer capable of performing medical services in a professionally competent, safe, legal, and ethical manner.” Planned Parenthood blasted the move in a statement, vowing to “fight back against this outrageous, malicious, political attack in Texas with everything we’ve got” in order to protect women’s access to health care.
