Dear Partners and Friends,

This email serves as a follow up on the U.S. ex rel Doe v Planned Parenthood Federation of America, et al case. U.S. district court judge Matthew Kasmaryck ordered a trial in a politically motivated False Claims Act case brought against the Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas — Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, and Planned Parenthood South Texas — and Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA). The case is set to go to trial in April 2024 in Amarillo.

To be clear: Planned Parenthood followed the law. The courts had explicitly ruled earlier that Planned Parenthood could provide care for Medicaid patients and get reimbursed for that care during this time.

Please share these new petitions for supporters to add their name and say “I’m For Planned Parenthood” as the meritless Texas-based lawsuit aims to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers and keep patients from the care they need:

Additionally, take a moment to:

  • Read more about the case here and here.

  • Review the partner toolkit here.

  • Sign up through this google form to receive further information and engagement opportunities. Our goal is to have 100 or more organizations sign this form.

  • In addition to the new petitions, continue to share this petition demanding that the state of Texas drop the lawsuit against Planned Parenthood.

Thank you all for being a part of this critical work, we could not do it without you all. Visit for more details. You will receive an invitation to a national partner briefing in the near future. In the meantime, if you have any questions please reach out to [email protected].

In solidarity,
