Funding Cuts May Hit Texas’ Planned Parenthood Program

According to reports by the Associate Press, Judge Gary Harger has announced that cuts may be made to the Planned Parenthood programs of Texas.

The announcement came on Monday when the judge said that the clinics and doctors who have abortion rights can be avoided of the funding for basic healthcare provided to poor women. Report on the same asserted that the decision will lead to disappointment in many patients.

It also said that these patients may choose to find some other physician to help with their basic health care needs. Lauren Bean, a general spokeswoman for the Attorney said that they were happy with the decision of the government to reject funds for the Planned Parenthood.

She also asserted that the Attorney general's office will help to Defend Texas Legislature's new move to avoid the abortion providers from receiving money under Women's Healthcare Program.

However, opposition criticized the cuts. "Our doors remain open today and always to Texas women in need. We only wish Texas politicians shared this commitment to Texas women, their health, and their well-being", said Ken Lambrecht, the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. He expressed deep concern about the new move, saying that it was risking health care access to women.
