    I am confused. So PP is not completely privately funded? Why would the state be required to fund them?
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    I am going to bet Conservatives tried to ban PP from Texas and not Liberals... what a joke.
    The story is rather long, but the short side of it is...efforts have been underway for a long time now to end all women's health programs, along with PP, has been very intentional and contrived by conservative legislators who have held a majority in Texas government for eons. Texas legislators purposely failed to meet certain legislative requirements with the Depart. of Health and Human Services thus causing Texas to lose about $30 billion in funding for health care issues. Rick Perry and other conservatives were extremely happy that these funds were cut off.

    No story on this seems to indicate quite how the judge finds it's unconstitutional.

    This:

    "The court is particularly influenced by the potential for immediate loss of access to necessary medical services by several thousand Texas women," Yeakel wrote in his ruling. "The record before the court at this juncture reflects uncertainty as to the continued viability of the Texas Women's Health Program."
    Is in no way a constitutional argument.

    if that's going to be the case, i'm going to look for a business to set up to hold Texans hostage to being my customers.... which seem to be a trend in this country.

    I wonder if our new system in Texas is going to include things like prenatal care, housing, baby formula like PP has done in the past.

    that's not really fully accurate. Even if a patient goes in and only goes in for the abortion, they count every singe part of the routine as a "separate procedure" so as to lower that percentage..

    So catch me up to speed on Texas. This state has actually provided all prenatal care, housing, and formula? And now it's not? I had no idea. Which laws have been changed? Are there any measurable results of the consequences?
