the texas taliban strikes again
Advertisements [?]
texas has a a very successful womans health plan called the medicare womans health care program. it provides contraceptive care and disease screening to 125,000 low income women.
the Texas GOP,in their anti planned parenthood mood will only renew it if planned parenthood is banned from receiving the money. in addition in PP were to sue to get the ban overturned the program would be immediatly terminated.

In addition to contraceptive care, participants get screening for cancer, diabetes, hypertension, anemia, and sexually transmitted diseases . the program saves the state $21.4 million a year be reducing medicare financed births.

without the program there will be more unwanted pregnancies and therefore more abortions in texas

so i guess the texas GOP supports more abortions
