Texas Lawmaker Fights to Reverse Planned Parenthood Ban

Posted on 11/16/2012 by with 1 comment

A Texas lawmaker introduced legislation earlier this week that would nullify a controversial rule banning abortion affiliates from participating in a Medicaid program that offers reproductive health care to low-income women. The bill takes aim at the ongoing battle some state leaders – including conservative Republican Gov. Rick Perry — are waging against Planned Parenthood’s inclusion in the Women’s Health Program in that state.

    First we are trying to legislate a womans right to chose. We need to get out of Women’s health issues, except to support her decisions and provide for those that require help. Stupidity by the Governor goes along with the inane idea of Seceding from the US. It sounds like the kid that doesn’t get to play and takes his toys and goes home. Nobody has ever discussed the ramifications of the services and program benefits the state would lose. Think people
