AG Paxton Praises Trump Administration Proposal to Protect Life in the Federal Title X Family Planning Grant Program
“Sending taxpayer money to abortion providers is a bit like giving matches to an arsonist, so long as he promises he will use somebody else’s matches to start fires,” Attorney General Paxton said. “In making a true separation between family planning clinics and abortion providers a requirement for receipt of Title X funds, President Trump again demonstrated his commitment to protecting the sanctity of life and the conscience rights of millions of Americans. Attempts to conflate abortion and family planning have always violated the letter and the spirit of Title X. This decision is equal parts victory for the rule of law and for the unborn.”

AG Paxton Announces Lawsuit Against Major Opioid Manufacturer Purdue Pharma for Violation of Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act
“My office is holding Purdue Pharma accountable for fueling the nation’s opioid epidemic by deceptively marketing prescription painkillers including OxyContin when it knew their drugs were potentially dangerous and that its use had a high likelihood of leading to addiction,” Attorney General Paxton said. “As Purdue got rich from sales of its opioids, Texans and others across the nation were swept up in a public health crisis that led to tens of thousands of deaths each year due to opioid overdoses.”
