Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit today arguing that Texas improperly excluded its clinics from participating in the Medicaid Women’s Health Program.

The lawsuit seeks an injunction barring Texas from enforcing its ban on Planned Parenthood, enacted in the 2011 legislative session, arguing that the ban is unconstitutional. The lawsuit also argues that Texas law did not give the state Health and Human Services Commission the authority to adopt a rule banning the organization in February.
