The Texas Republicans who defunded Planned Parenthood and kicked the provider out of the state’s low-income women’s health program are now trying to fix their mistake with a benefit concert.
Planned Parenthood closed two West Texas clinics within a few days of each other last week, citing its inability to sustain the rural clinics in Texas’ anti-choice climate. Meanwhile, the state Planned Parenthood affiliate received a gift from the foundation of conservative former presidential candidate Ross Perot.
Jan Brewer was so close to not passing unconstitutional bills just to assuage anti-choice extremists. Then she caved.
Ohio anti-choicers would rather that women get misinformation than real reproductive health care.
The Ohio GOP has proposed a budget that would reject covering more low-income citizens under Medicaid, refuse funding to Planned Parenthood, and give more money to CPCs. What about caring for the poor?
Once an anti-choicer’s done all he can to ban abortion, his next logical move is to cut off birth control access.
The 113th session is already starting to look a lot like the 112th session.

If they can’t get the reproductive health organization defunded, they will settle for arrested.
