The Agency for Health Care Administration inspected all 16 Planned Parenthood clinics in Florida after undercover videos released by an anti-abortion group show officials describing how they provide aborted fetus tissue for medical research.

Planned Parenthood is suing, saying the state is using a “new and unpublished” definition of trimesters to cite the clinic. This is a breaking news story, check back later for more details.
