Judge Rules Planned Parenthood Affiliate Can Be Excluded From Texas Health Program

Legal fight continues


Planned Parenthood took another hit on Friday when a judge refused to let its affiliates remain in a health care program for low-income Texas women.

The ruling from Travis County Court addresses one of several complaints that Planned Parenthood has filed in state and federal court since 2011. That year, the Texas Legislature excluded abortion providers and their affiliates from the Texas Women's Health Program.
