AUSTIN — The Texas Attorney General's Office today filed legal action against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, challenging the Obama Administration's decision to stop federal funding for Texas' Women's Health Program. The Obama Administration decided it will no longer provide federal funding for the Women's Health Program solely because State law prohibits taxpayer funds from going to organizations that perform elective abortions.

The Obama Administration's decision interferes with Texas' successful efforts to promote women's health. The State's legal action seeks to overturn the Administration's misguided decision to shut down Texas' successful Women's Health Program and seeks to reinstate the federal funding that previously supported the program.
