A new state law in Texas went into effect on January 1 that requires the state to fully fund women's health clinics with the exception of those that provide abortion services.
Today, Planned Parenthood in that state will head to court to seek a temporary injunction that would allow the agency to take part in the states new health program.
The law takes funding out of the federal government's hand and places it into the state's.
This means Texas is no longer eligible for federal funding for women's health, therefore Planned Parenthood in that state will no longer get federal funds.
Planned Parenthood in Texas accounted for about half of health program services for women last year.
Low-income women were able to get treatment for health issues such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure screening and annual checkups.
Planned Parenthood plans to fight the ruling.
