    The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) issued an order on Monday banning Planned Parenthood from participating in Medicaid programs.

    The move by the Office of Inspector General at HHSC comes after the revelation of the gruesome videos filmed at various Planned Parenthood facilities, including the Gulf Coast office in Texas.

    In conjunction with the HHSC letter, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced his LIFE Initiative program designed to provide even greater protections for children in the womb. The initiative also aims at preventing the sale of baby body parts, according to a statement from the governor’s office obtained by Breitbart Texas. Part of Abbott’s initiative calls for new legislation to be enacted by the next session of the Texas legislature.


    The letter from the HHSC Inspector General ends Medicaid participation for Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas and is based on alleged Medicaid violations. The letter also calls for the end to funding by state and local taxpayers of other abortion providers as well.
