Texas is leading the way in de-funding abortion providers.
Under Texas’ new law, organizations that perform abortions (e.g. Planned Parenthood) will not be eligible for state funding under the Women’s Health Program.
This means Texas will be able to ensure the grant money it awards to organizations who promote women’s health are doing just that: Promoting women’s health, not aborting babies.
