Gov. Perry: Texas to Immediately Defund Abortion Affiliates in WHP
AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry yesterday released a statement on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals decision to deny Planned Parenthood’s request for reconsideration of the Court’s August decision to uphold state law.
“Today’s ruling affirms yet again that in Texas the Women’s Health Program has no obligation to fund Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform or promote abortion. In Texas we choose life, and we will immediately begin defunding all abortion affiliates to honor and uphold that choice.”
