Thousands Of Women Forced To Find New Doctors Now That Texas Has Defunded Planned Parenthood
After anti-choice Texas officials spent most of 2012 attempting to defund their state’s Planned Parenthood clinics, they finally succeeded. On January 1, Texas launched its new state-run Women’s Health Program — a network of health care organizations that provide preventative care and family planning to low-income women — without Planned Parenthood.
Since the national women’s health organization used to be the single biggest provider in the program, serving nearly half of the state’s 110,000 low-income women who rely on Medicaid, Texas’ decision to exclude Planned Parenthood will force thousands of women to look for a new doctor in the new year.
