Defund Planned Parenthood? No! As all of my representatives know, no federal funds go to funding abortions. That was passed into law years ago with my former state’s representative, Henry Hyde’s bill. He like many of those who wave the Bible and espouse saintly causes was no saint. Look him up if this is all news to you. Planned Parenthood is vital to supporting women’s health across the state. Without it we will see the state’s maternal and infant death rate due to childbirth climb even higher than it is already. The number of unwed teen pregnancies will go even higher. The state is already at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to all matters relating to women’s and their children’s health. The video was altered and the case was responsibly decided. The newest iteration of the appeal will hopefully be overturned in due time. In the meantime women will be left without healthcare resources. Just like the government employees are left without resources. Way to be there for Texans.
