Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement regarding Planned Parenthood's latest lawsuit against Texas, filed in the Travis County District Court, relating to the Women's Health Program rules:

"If there was ever any doubt that Planned Parenthood is more concerned about its own interests than those of Texas women, there is no longer. Having lost on its constitutional claims, Planned Parenthood has now turned to Travis County judges in a desperate effort to find some way to keep making money off Texas taxpayers. In Texas, we've chosen to protect innocent life. We will keep fighting for life, and we will ultimately prevail."
