Attorney General Ken Paxton today released the following statement after the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit agreed to review the Texas case to defund Planned Parenthood:

"I'm pleased that the full 5th Circuit will take up this case, and I'm hopeful for a definitive ruling that Planned Parenthood cannot challenge the state's decision to remove it from the Texas Medicaid program as a result of its unethical actions."
