Rick Perry’s Texas Women’s Health Program Leaves Many Women Without…
Category: State Fights
What happens when Governor Rick Perry blocks Planned Parenthood health centers from participating in the Texas Women’s Health Program? The 50,000 low-income women who had previously gone to one of the 47 Planned Parenthood health centers for access to affordable birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, and STI testing are forced to find a new provider. Unfortunately, finding a new provider is easier said than done.
Just last week Texas claimed its capacity to provide health care will increase – so far not so much. In fact, many of the named providers on the new Texas Women’s Health Program’s website don't even offer women’s health services.
CBS Evening News took a closer look at the mess in Texas. Check it out in the clip below:
