Trimming an abortion giant down to size

budget cuts scissors cutting moneyPlanned Parenthood's latest round of lawsuits against Texas apparently is coming to an end.

For several years, the abortion giant has been in the courts fighting against the Lone Star State, which wants to bar the organization from receiving state Medicaid funds. The state has established February 3 as the cutoff date, and also refused a Planned Parenthood request for a 30-day stay.

Kyleen Wright of the Texans for Life Coalition tells One News Now that women in Texas won't be cheated.

"Now [abortion advocates are] crying foul that women won't be able to get health care elsewhere – and you know that's not true," she argues. "When [the state] established this program, they appropriated $174 million to pay for family planning in women's health. They have only added to that in the years since."

Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas are sparse compared to community health centers, which are working to provide genuine health needs of women – but not abortions – in every county in the state. But there's another issue, says Wright.

"The vast majority of Americans, and certainly Texans, don't want their money subsidizing abortion – and abortion is a big part of what Planned Parenthood does," the pro-lifer describes. "So, we're thrilled that the courts are allowing this to comply with the will of the people."

Wright points out that Planned Parenthood's inexcusable activities include selling aborted babies' body parts for a profit and performing abortions on minors while keeping it hidden from their parents.

One News Now reported earlier this week that Texas may be on the verge of completely abolishing abortion in the state.
