Monday, January 25, 2016 – Austin, Texas
Statement by Attorney General Ken Paxton on Planned Parenthood Investigation
“The fact remains that the videos exposed the horrific nature of abortion and the shameful disregard for human life of the abortion industry. The state’s investigation of Planned Parenthood is ongoing.”

Friday, January 22, 2016 – Austin, Texas
Attorney General Paxton Statement on Roe v. Wade Anniversary
"Forty-three years after Roe v. Wade, let us remember those who are missing from our society and were never given the chance to live; the children we will never know, the faces we will never see and the people we will never meet. These innocent children will never celebrate a birthday, graduate from high school or college, or have the opportunity to start families of their own. It’s impossible to fill the void of more than 50 million missing human beings, or to understand the full impact this lost potential has had on our nation. We as a society have a duty to respect the dignity and value of every single human life, and today I pray for an end to the devastation that abortion has brought on our communities.”

Thursday, January 21, 2016 – Austin, Texas
Attorney General Paxton Statement on DC Circuit Power Plan Decision
“Regardless of the court’s ruling today, the Obama Administration’s Power Plan not only remains bad policy but is also still unlawful. This ill-advised example of federal overreach will kill jobs, result in higher electric bills and create a significantly less reliable electric grid for all consumers. Alongside West Virginia, we will continue leading a 25-state coalition challenging the EPA’s rule wherever the case takes us.”

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 – Austin, Texas
Texas Attorney General Paxton Releases Opinion on Daily Paid ‘Fantasy Sports’ Sites
“It’s my duty as Attorney General to look to the law, as passed by the people’s representatives, to answer the questions put to this office,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said. “Paid daily ‘fantasy sports’ operators claim they can legally operate as an unregulated house, but none of their arguments square with existing Texas law. Simply put, it is prohibited gambling in Texas if you bet on the performance of a participant in a sporting event and the house takes a cut.”

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 – Austin, Texas
Statement on Supreme Court Granting Review in Immigration Case
“In deciding to hear this case, the Supreme Court recognizes the importance of the separation of powers. As federal courts have already ruled three times, there are limits to the President’s authority, and those limits enacted by Congress were exceeded when the President unilaterally sought to grant ‘lawful presence’ to more than 4 million unauthorized aliens who are in this country unlawfully. The Court should affirm what President Obama said himself on more than 20 occasions: that he cannot unilaterally rewrite congressional laws and circumvent the people’s representatives.”
